Album Review


Read "MEM_MODS Vol. 1" reviewed by Doug Collette

Modern bluesman extraordinaire Luther Dickinson is always doing something interesting inside or outside of the recently reconfigured North Mississippi Allstars. He is one of the Jelly Roll Freedom Rockers, produced and played on the stellar LP by Sisters of the Strawberry Moon, Solstice (New West Records, 2019), and collaborated with Colin Linden on Amour (Stony Plain, 2019).

Read "Onward and Upward" reviewed by Doug Collette

Luther Dickinson, a founding member of The North Mississippi Allstars and a guitarist recently recruited into The Black Crowes, is only one member of The Sons of Mudboy, an impromptu gathering of musicians offering a posthumous tribute to Dickinson's father, Jim. The group's name constitutes a further homage to the elder Dickinson, who fronted a band called Mudboy and the Neutrons in the 1970s. Jim Dickinson's solo recording career, rooted in Sun Studios session work in the 1960s, was in ...
