Well, it's only one song

and the fact that it's only one song is the weirdest thing about it, in a way (not like Willie is the only "under-recognized" blues artist from the era). Delta blues fans definitely know about Willie and the song is his most popular but I don't know how well-known he or the song is in general. At any rate, I took its inclusion to mean that whoever made the list thinks Willie should be more of a household name, which he obviously isn't.
