Reviewed 2014-08-23 
Tompkins Square reissues a 1971 album whose title describes the contents inside perfectly: this is fiddle music, searing and rich and almost always with no accompaniment. Born in 1935 and now a resident of eastern Washington, Dawson’s led a pretty crazy life, and his performances here are raucous and adventurous to match. Traditional tunes cross red-hot wires with licks of Dawson’s own devising, and the result is a rip-roaring tour through the fiddle’s possibilities. Put on any track and enjoy. No FCCs.
