Editorial Reviews

This album is the product of a friendship that developed more than three decades ago between two men who, although they grew up near the same Mississippi Delta town of Tchula, never met until they began living in Chicago. Harmonica/vocalist Lester Davenport and guitarist/producer Jimmy Dawkins are united here professionally after years of running around the city's West Side. Lester's vibrant, rocking CD with 12 original tracks is a magical place where blues giants like Jimmy Dawkins, Bob Stroger, Detroit Jr. -- and the "Mad Dog" himself -- still roam.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tough stuff April 25, 2005
Despite a long career, this is only Lester Davenport's second solo cd. It is fairly standard 12 bar arrangements and the lyrics are pretty predictable but it has the feeling of deep Chicago blues and the band is terrific throughout. Two of the best guitarists in Chicago, Jimmy Dawkins and Billy Flynn are on board and each gets plenty of solo space. Davenport's harp playing is simple but effective, especially on the instrumentals "West Side Blues Harp" and "To Our Lost Ones 9/11/01.

If you like lowdown Chicago blues played in the classic style than you will definitely want to check out this terrific release by the masters of the genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT ARTIST September 19, 2004
Lester only has two cd's both are five+ easy, get these two cd's you will be glad you did. He plays in the Chicago style, he blows a mean harp, there is also some fine guitar playing, he can also sing some great blues. His blues is classic rocking blues at it's finest, so buy these two and enjoy.
