Sometime in 1968, Chicago Blues legend Willie Dixon produced a spoken word album for his label Yambo Records. Willie hired Chicago's radio legend E. Rodney Jones to deliver a powerful vocal performance and used music from a Chess Records track "This Can't Be The End" by McKinley Mitchell. Juanita Winfield (co-producer), L. Toussaint, Lincoln T. Collins are also credited on the album.

The album was released in 1970 and featured a revolutionary poem reportedly penned by his brother Arthur while in jail. But Arthur Dixon did not originally write this poem. It was written by an Australian radical who moved to Chicago 74 years prior. His name was Arthur Desmond, better known as Ragnar Redbeard, and the book it came from was none other than the infamous "Might is Right".

This is a "Promotional T-shirt" that never was. Created using artwork and typography from the original album, including a photo of Arthur Dixon with war club.

Introducing a special addition to the "Phantom Peregrination Souvenirs" line of t-shirts: a tribute to remarkable places and events of the past that, though real, never had the chance to boast official keepsakes. Our collection immortalizes these unsung places and objects of history, offering a tangible memento for those who appreciate the beauty of the overlooked.
