Willie Mabon - I'm The Fixer/ Too Hot To Handle
Willie never regained his momentum after leaving Chess in 1956. He stopped at Federal in 1957, Mad in 1960, Formal in 1962 (where he stirred up some local sales with his leering "Got to Have Some"), and USA in 1963-64. Willie sat out much of the late '60s but came back strong after moving to Paris in 1972, recording and touring Europe prolifically until his death. He played many of the big European festivals in Montreux, Berlin and Holland.
