Review (++)

Jimmy shares the album with the great Hip Linkchain. The Lp is more Hip´s than Dawkins´. Jimmy really just have two tracks, Sounds of West Side and Boogie Chillun. Jimmy also plays guitar on Little Red Rooster. The sound quality is Ok, although I´ve heard better! Jimmy is in great shape! He seems real angry with something! Too bad there´s only one real Jimmy Dawkins track and even that one is faded out. If there hade been 8 Jimmy Dawkins songs with this attitude the album would have been lethal, but now it would have been better as a single with one track from each artist. Hip Linkchain seems to enjoy his set more, but I think he´s better on the live MCM from the seventies or on his studio albums.
