iTunes Review

As the son of legendary producer Jim Dickinson, this blues guitarist knows he has big shoes to fill—hence the modesty and respect for tradition that pervade this generous and touching mid-career collection of casual recordings. With the help of guests like Mavis Staples ("Ain't No Grave"), the North Mississippi AllStar gathers old and new songs into a collection worthy of being traded among "the bootleggers of the bottomland," with fife and tub bass sharing an eternal presence alongside Dickinson's vivid, modern electric yawp.

Mythic Mississippi

After a lifetime of emersing himself in Mississippi's hill country blues, Luther Dickinson has become an equal to his heroes R.L. Burnside, Otha Turner, and Junior Kimbrough. There aren't many that could write and play songs with such haunting power. "Ain't No Grave" belongs in another century.

While "times done been won't be no more," in Luther's writing and playing, we get an authentic sound of Mississippi from generations ago. Highly recommended.
