rock n roll blues
Rollicking, raw & teeming with palpable punk energy one minute, laid back & burning with the tranquil beauty of a southern sunset the next, Luther Dickinson's new solo album is indeed 'Rock 'n Roll Blues'.
Luther is best known as the lead guitarist & vocalist for boogie & blues-rock innovators North Mississippi Allstars & has recorded with an amazing array of musicians throughout his impressive career. 'Rock 'n Roll Blues', as Luther puts it, is "folk music with juke-joint drums & lots of harmonies". Essentially an autobiography set to music, the 10-track LP traces Luther's journey from excitable teen growing up in rural Mississippi to tour-van vet & showcases his acutely observant songwriting & superb guitar playing.
