In this episode, we are going to Chicago to highlight one of the unsung blues heroes in Jimmy Dawkins. Jimmy was one of the progenitors of what came to be known as the Chicago West Side sound. He was associated with other legendary blues artists such as Otis Rush and Magic Sam and one could easily make an argument that he was just as stellar as those guys. Take a journey through Jimmy's prolific output as we cover different periods of his career with a particular stress on how he developed his marvelous guitar sound and find out what makes him so special as a songwriter.
