2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By No Longer Used VINE VOICE on 3 Sept. 2003
Format: Audio CD
Jimmy 'Fast Fingers' Dawkins spent a long time as a side man on club dates for Magic Sam & Jimmy Rogers and on recordings from Wild Child Butler, Koko Taylor, Sleepy John Estes, Carey Bell & Luther Allison before recording this, his first as a leader.
Recorded over the period of November 68 to mid Jan 69 these tracks also boast the guitar of Mighty Joe Young and the piano & organ of Lafayette Leake.
Dawkins likeable voice and solid staccatto guitar bursts combine with the talants of an excellent band to deliver a swingingly good album.
My only quibble and it's a small one is that the two bonus tracks have a new vocal track added (in 98) and it is too apparent on my equipment.
That said Dawkins deserves more recognition and this fine album proves it.

Awesome Debut For Blues Guitar Master 4 April 2007
By Terence Allen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
When Fast Fingers was first released in 1969, Jimmy Dawkins was recognized as a blues guitarist on his way up. He never has received the acclaim he deserves, but this record, his debut album still holds up, and showcases a talent that we are still bless to have with us.

Dawkins' style of playing is mournful but frenetic, with lost of fast runs (hence the album name, which became Dawkins' nickname) and times when his playing starts to build up like the music is going to speed up considerably, but he levels off.

Songs like It Serves Me Right To Suffer, I'm Good For Nothing, I Finally Learned A Lesson, and I Don't Know What Love Is show off this skillful technique, and make you wonder why Dawkins doesn't occupy a more prominent place in the blues pantheon. Regardless, this CD is excellent, and very enjoyable for anyone who likes the blues and blues guitar.

A Story of the Dirty No Good Blues 6 April 2006
By A. Woodley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is Jimmy Dawkins first and strongest album. Dawkins would never be quite so innovative and tough again. The other reviewer said that Jimmy Dawkins was not one of the original West Side Soul and Blues men (which is true) but he is one of the original "dirty" blues men. He was one of the first to turn the distortion on his guitar up a notch. He muzzled the sound of the guitar so that it dosen't sound quite as sharp but the screams and underlying heartbreak come across all the same.

An essential addition to your West Side Blues Collection 7 Mar. 2001
By "kmeyer99" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Jimmy Dawkins was not the first, but he was and is one of the very best West Side (of Chicago) blues guitarists. This is his first album, and it features some killer guitar work along with some somber singing in that classic minor-key West Side sound.
Highly recommended.

A True Gem 1 Dec. 2010
By Stinky K. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I love this CD and cannot figure out why I had never heard of this guy before. Dawkins' playing is fantastic and he has an awesome guitar sound. He is as good as any other player of his time. I guess he is just one of those guys that fell off the radar screen and never got the attention he deserved. I would not miss the chance to buy this CD and get something very cool that seems to be a rare find.

Blues That Will Bring A Smile To Your Soul. 8 May 2012
By buster4236 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I heard Jimmy Dawkins for the first time on channel 978 of Dish Network, and my ear turned in the direction of the sound of his Blues. Absolutely enjoy this CD.
