Jimmy Dawkins – Kant Sheck Dees Bluze
Jimmy has recorded the best set of his career, accompanied by a top-notch Chicago band of "Professor" Eddie Lusk on piano/organ, ace bass man Johnny B. Gayden, Ray Scott on drums, Billy Flynn of The Legendary Blues Band on rhythm guitar and two storming vocals by a young female singer, Nora Jean Wallace. (Jimmy) has a gift to say so, so much with a single note or riff that modern fret board wizards would do well to listen to... Unreservedly recommended. - Blues and Rhythm
Jimmy Dawkins is a masterful musician. He's a brilliant song writer, an effective singer, and one of the very best West Side Chicago guitarists, with a staccato style of playing all his own... The emotional force of Dawkins' guitar is devastating... (kant shek dees bluze) is an essential album for lovers of blues guitar and anyone who looks to blues for no-holds-barred confrontation with the human condition. - Alabama Blues Society Newsletter

1. AllMusic - Bill Dahl
Incredibly weird title (many of the songs sport equally bizarre spellings), but a major step back in the right direction for the guitarist, whose dirty, distorted tone won't thrill the purists.
