Review

Don´t ever leave me (5.01)
Jimmy Dawkins in 1972. Andrew Odom sings in his typical fullthroated style. Jimmy throws in some mean chords and plays a very typical Dawkin solo with stinging high notes and tremolo licks. A good song and the audience seems to appreciate it.

Got my mojo workin´ (4.30)
A full speed take and Jimmy seems to enjoy playing dirty back up guitar. Jesse Williams more clean guitar makes a nice contrast. In Jimmy´s third solo every note is on the verge of turning into tremolo licks. Highly enjoyable.
