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.

Hope Luther does more like this.
J. Kelleher
This is great songwriting with strong percussion, standup bass and acoustic guitar backing up Dickinson's unburnished vocals.

I listen to this album several times a week.

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. ,

By Joe Stewart on May 14, 2014

This is a strong set of autobiographical songs from Luther that probably didn't fit NMA. The songs sound like they were written over several years and the subject matter mostly deals with Luther making music. The album is done with an acoustic band and has a relaxed feel but it still rocks in places. Highly recommended.

This is great songwriting with strong percussion, standup bass and acoustic guitar backing up Dickinson's unburnished vocals. The CD is short with only 10 songs and about 35 minutes in length but it is quality from start to finish. Favorite tracks include "Yard Man," "Goin' Country," and "Bar Band" but "Vandalize" grows on me more every time I listen.
