Colin Linden & Luther Dickinson: Amour

Read "Amour" reviewed by Doug Collette

On Amour, Colin Linden (of Blackie & The Rodeo Kings) and Luther Dickinson (from North Mississippi Allstars) offer a collaborative paean to romantic love that is not entirely sentimental. Even on such an otherwise earnest effort, there is an inherent danger that might come across as campy, but the two guitarists/vocalists demonstrate an abiding loyalty to ...


John Hiatt: The Eclipse Sessions

Read "The Eclipse Sessions" reviewed by Doug Collette

Since John Hiatt hit his artistic and commercial stride with Bring The Family (A&M, 1987), the most listenable and durable albums of his have been those recorded with a band like the one appearing there (eventually known as Little Village: Ry Cooder, Nick Lowe and Jim Keltner). Offering comparably uniform musicianship in proportionate support of this ...


The Nighthawks: All You Gotta Do

Read "All You Gotta Do" reviewed by Doug Collette

On All You Gotta Do, The Nighthawks illustrate how they've established, then nurtured their vaunted status among the most venerated of American blues units for over four decades and upwards of twenty albums. The changes the band's seen under the tutelage of original founding member Mark Wenner continues unfettered on this self-produced album: the band alternately ...

North Mississippi Allstars: The North Mississippi Allstars: Keys to the Kingdom

Read "The North Mississippi Allstars: Keys to the Kingdom" reviewed by Doug Collette

Following a hiatus of sorts for The North Mississippi Allstars, during which time guitarist Luther Dickinson worked with The Black Crowes while drummer sibling Cody fronted his own band, Hill Country Revue, the group's reformation has fueled a fire within the music of Keys to the Kingdom.

The music begins to flow in a ...

Beale Street Music Festival, Memphis in May 2010

April, indeed, may be the cruelest of months, but I doubt that a blue-blood like Thomas Sterns Eliot ever spent the sweaty seasons in Hell that are Spring and Summer in the cultural ...

North Mississippi Allstars
Highline Ballroom
New York, NY
February 26, 2010

As expected, in the best way possible. When my friend (a North Mississippi Allstars virgin) asked what we were in for as the Allstars took the Highline Ballroom stage on a snowy Friday evening in New York, I told her some specifics: drummer Cody ...


The North Mississippi Allstars: Do It Like We Used to Do

Read "Do It Like We Used to Do" reviewed by Doug Collette

The North Mississippi Allstars' youth belies its history, as documented on Do It Like We Used to Do. Over the course of two CDs and a DVD featuring archival material, interviews and concert footage, the band displays reverence for the music it plays, without ever taking itself too seriously.

Reasonably priced in skeletal packaging with colorful ...

North Mississippi Allstars
Bluebird Theater
Denver, Colorado
January 31, 2009

It's just as well that the Bluebird Theater doesn't have any seats. When the North Mississippi Allstars play, no one would be sitting anyway. Their shows are basically a non-stop two-hour boogie fest. They play “country blues" that has ...
