Joe Restivo: Where's Joe?

Read "Where's Joe?" reviewed by Doug Collette

The title Where's Joe? carries a deliciously ironic subtext because guitarist Joe Restivo has hardly been an unobtrusive figure on the Memphis music scene. On the contrary, after having schooled himself on the history of the area as a flashpoint for blues and jazz, as a member of the Bo Keys, Restivo began making regular club ...

Read "Buddha And The Blues" reviewed by Doug Collette

NOLA songwriter/musician Anders Osborne's frequent and diverse studio and stage collaborations, including but not limited to those with Luther and Cody Dickinson of the North Mississippi Allstars and Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead, all lead back to solo work like Buddha and the Blues, self-composed tunes rendered all the more pungent through musicianship tuned to ...

The Original Delaney & Bonnie (Accept No Substitute) and To Bonnie From Delaney

Read "The Original Delaney & Bonnie (Accept No Substitute) and To Bonnie From Delaney" reviewed by Doug Collette

Delaney & Bonnie's best work functions as a primer on contemporary rock and roll, not to mention how the pair functioned as a catalyst to what's arguably the most prolific and productive instances of musical community that arose from the late Sixties and early Seventies. And even if the following two selections are the sole titles ...

James Luther Dickinson/North Mississippi Allstars: I'm Just Dead, I'm Not Gone

Read "I'm Just Dead, I'm Not Gone" reviewed by Doug Collette

The music of I'm Just Dead, I'm Not Gone is as ghostly as the black and white cover photo of its principal. The North Mississippi Allstars provides appropriately earthy accompaniment to a front man who commands the spotlight in larger-than-life fashion.

A little background helps enhance the focus on the portrait provided by this album, ...

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: Keep On Marchin'

Read "North Mississippi Allstars: Keep On Marchin'" reviewed by Doug Collette

The simplicity and passion at the heart of the blues become all the more impressive as successive generations (re)discover those virtues. The North Mississippi Allstars recorded their DVD, the inaugural title on their new label, in November of 2005 at the fan- and performer-friendly Vermont venue Higher Ground, and Keep on Marchin' documents an evening of ...
