Editorial Reviews

Luther Dickinson enters a new phase of his storied musical career with his new solo album, Rock n Roll Blues. The new solo album is not punk, but it does maintain a similarly hardcore DIY ethos. As a member of North Mississippi All Stars, Luther Dickinson may have innovated blues and boogie rock but he is also an acutely observant songwriter. The new album tells the story of a guy growing into a life in music.
As a member of the North Mississippi All Stars, South Memphis String Band and The Word, Luther has made himself widely known as both a talented musician and as a producer with four Grammy nominations to prove it - three in the contemporary blues category and one in traditional folk.

I listen to this album several times a week.
John L. Garth
This is great songwriting with strong percussion, standup bass and acoustic guitar backing up Dickinson's unburnished vocals.
Rhetta Akamatsu
I loved it, and all I knew of this Luther feller was that he played with the Black Crowes at Levon's barn.

this cd makes me feel like I am home, in the sense of a few friends (albeit great musicians) picking around a fire. Great songs highlighted by sparse but foot tapping arrangements - a stripped down version of Luther shines w just him, standup bass, file, and drums.

Highly recommended!

Luther's new album is so warm and inviting. The songs are whimsical and down to earth, and their stripped-down instrumentation allows Luther to really shine. It's a very intimate look at Luther in a solo setting. I have one small complaint, that keeps this from being a 5-Star album: it's only like 33 minutes long. There are 10 songs that check in mostly in the 2-3 minute range. I love Luther, and I love this CD, but I shelled out a lot of dough for it, and it ended way too quick for me. The CD sounds like it was a labor of love. I'm guessing there were a few more tracks that could have rounded out the album nicely. Anyhow, despite its length, I have no doubt you'll love this album too. It's yet another side of a performer I thought I knew pretty well already, but now know a little better.

What a brilliant move. He's got Sharde Thomas, the last living Drum and Fife bandleader, playing a simple kit with little to no high hat or cymbals. Add in Amy Lavere, a sympathic bass player and harmony singer. The lyrics are out front, with Luther singing about what he knows: the South and just getting by. Short and sweet at about 35 minutes.

I am a big North Mississippi Allstars fan, and I generally enjoy their side projects. I was a bit disappointed with the last NMA release because it had so many different lead singers and styles. This CD made me much happier, as it is much more like what I expected from an official band release. Luther is a spectacular guitar player who gives many nuances to this type of blues. His songwriting here is personal and engaging. I like "Yard Man" the best, because it's very funny and it captures my exact feelings on yard work. ,

If you've ever heard of the Mississippi Allstars then this album is a must have. Luther knows how to do it right by going back to his roots and playin' the music he grew up on. Not one song on this album that disappoints! Keep up the good work Luther!!!!

I have been a fan of Luther's for a number of years. I listen to this album several times a week. Plain, simple, stripped down music. Do yourself a favor and buy a copy.

I bought this after hearing the song Bar Band on the Outlaw Country station on XM satellite radio. I loved it, and all I knew of this Luther feller was that he played with the Black Crowes at Levon's barn. So I bought the vinyl album, and love it. Every song. Just a great feelin record. Hope Luther does more like this.
