Review (++++)

This is one of the classic albums in blues history. Recorded October 27 and November 1 in 1971 you can feel the dark and cold autumn weather when you listen to the album. The band is hard-core Chicago and Jimmy Dawkins gives ample proof of why he was considered as on of the best guitar players in Chicago at the time. Jimmy plays in his concentrated, yet fluid, style. He hadnīt yet started to break up his playing as he did a couple of years later. This is the Fast Fingers whoīs playing.
