Review (+)

In 1984 Jimmy got a contract with John Stedman, owner of the English JSP label. JSP, just as Black & Blue in the Seventies, have been accused of recording some pretty bad stuff. JSP should though have credit for recording several artists who shamefully enough didn´t have record contracts elsewhere, e.g. Buddy Guy, Jimmy Dawkins, Lefty Dizz, Carey Bell and many more. JSP also was one of the first blues labels which foresighted the CD-revolution. Jimmy Dawkins JSP album is unfortunately not one of the better albums on JSP, and it´s definitely not one of Jimmy Dawkins strongest albums. Staffan Solding have written the liner notes and his name makes me feel sad and blue. He was the DJ on the Swedish radio program "Mera Blues" for many years. Today there´s no blues programs whatsoever on Swedish Radio. It´s a shame! If you like you can listen to the entire album at Yahoo Broadcast
