John Hiatt with The Jerry Douglas Band: Leftover Feelings

Read "Leftover Feelings" reviewed by Doug Collette


Leftover Feelings is not the first such group collaboration in John Hiatt's varied and lengthy career—-the North Mississippi Allstars were integral to Master of Disaster (New West Records, 2005).

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.

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, ...
