iTunes Review

The death of their father, legendary Memphis producer Jim Dickinson, inspired Luther and Cody Dickinson to focus hard on the album that became World Boogie Is Coming, named after one of their dad's sayings. They produced it themselves at their Zebra Ranch Studios in Hernando, Miss., aside from one day at Royal Studios in Memphis with Robert Plant playing harmonica. From the naked voodoo power of the to-the-point “Boogie” to the smooth country harmonies of Junior Kimbrough’s “Meet Me in the City" and the nasty blues guitars of “Turn Up Satan,” it’s evident that the Allstars’ basic musical plan has limitless permutations to keep them alive and engaged for a lifetime. Fellow musicians Duwayne and Garry Burnside (R.L. Burnside’s offspring), Lightnin’ Malcolm, Alvin Youngblood Hart, and Sharde Thomas (Othar Turner’s granddaughter) add instrumentation. The record was built with a free hand, with field recordings of R.L. Burnside and Othar Turner brought into the tracks. It’s a mix of hi-fi and lo-fi, of old and young, with enough raw power (see “World Boogie”) to keep it real.

Customer Reviews

A lot of music for $10...not their best CD, however.

Yes sir, iTunes definitely came through in customers' favor this time, what with all the bonus tracks...26 tracks total...for $9.99. Now that's more like it! :-) So many new iTunes albums are like $11.99, $12.99....when you can often get the CD for $9.99 (scratching my head there).

As far as the content of this album is concerned, yep, there's some good stuff here. I tend to focus my attention on the er, NEW songs, thank you very much, not the songs that they've already recorded on previous CD's. WTH? I like the version of Meet Me In The City on Polaris better. Snake Drive...pretty cool, but the live versions to be had on multiple live albums are better, if you ask me. Anyway...Turn Up Satan is a standout track...great stuff! On par with the NMA material of yore. Hodown (bonus track) I really enjoyed.

I do rejoice that the Dickinson bros. and company returned to their roots in Hill Country after their not-so-great "gospel" CD Keys To The Kingdom. However, the presentation of some of these songs on here sound kind of experimental and gimmicky, like the lo-fi vocal effect, which I think is used a little too much. Luther and Cody are great musicians, but they don't get much chance to strut their stuff with much cool jamming on this CD. Their instrumental prowess and songwriting are definitely their greatest strengths, but 1. again, not much jamming here, and 2. not many new original songs here, either. I like the appearances of the guest artists, particularly Robert Plant's ripping harp solo and the contributions of the Burnsides, but I myself prefer the gist of an NMA CD to be the Dickinsons and Chris Chew going to town with their magical interplay as demonsrated on their first two CD's and plenty of their live material, which thankfully is available for downloading. Compared to their early albums along with their live CD's Do It Like We Used To Do and Boulderado, I don't rate this CD anywhere nearly as high as those. But that's just me...I'm glad plenty of people are slapping a 5-star review on this album...enjoy!

Great Stuff and a STEAL at $10

This is a must have for NMA and hill country blues fans! Awesome tunes made even greater with guest appearances from multiple hill country legends. Get it. Get it, NOW!

Moving into much rootsier territory than their former punk band DDT, brothers Luther (guitar, mandolin, vocals) and Cody Dickinson (drums, sampling) formed the North Mississippi Allstars in 1996 with bassist Chris Chew. The sons of legendary Memphis producer Jim Dickinson were born in Fayette County, TN, and their family later moved to northern Mississippi, where the boys soaked up the country blues sound of the region from artists like Mississippi Fred McDowell and R.L. Burnside. That became the...
