Willie Dixon (1915-92) was one of the most influential figures in the nexus between blues, rock 'n' roll and contemporary rock music. "Built For Comfort" is one of his most famous songs, echoing the sentiment built for comfort, not for speed, as indeed he was, at 6 feet 6 inches with girth to match. Like many of his songs it has been widely recorded including by Dixon himself. Although the Howlin' Wolf version is probably the most thematic, the UFO recording - with Michael Schenker
on guitar and Londoner Phil Mogg - providing the (very un-English accented) vocals is a faithful electric version of an immortal slow blues classic.
