Willie Cobbs is probably best known for his classic song "You Don't Love Me". His recording career has spanned five decades and the list of people he has performed with reads like a who's who of Blues.

After years of harmonica work and recording 45's under one label name after another Willie gave up the studio for the club scene for a while. Willie became a club owner; running the Blue Flame in Stuttgart, Arkansas and later opening Turning Point in Itta Bena, Mississippi. In 1978 he relocated to Greenwood, Mississippi and opened Mr. C's Bar-B-Que.

In 1986 he teamed up with Jim O'Neal of Rooster Blues and put together a cassette of his 45 releases on Wilco. Then in 1994 he did his first CD "Down To Earth" on Rooster Blues performing with Rawls and Luckett.
