" ... the Allstars, a blues-rock trio formed a dozen years ago by Mr. Dickinson with his brother, the drummer Cody Dickinson, and a bassist, Chris Chew..."

Just wondering - how do the North Mississippi Allstars escape being labeled as "southern rock"?

Right on bro! I love the NMAS! I just saw them again last saturday and had my mind blown. Luther can play for real! He even gave Warren and Derek a run for their money when they all jammed in Saratoga. I'll def. make a point see them next time they come around.

I agree with the designation of them as 'blues-rock' trio. The Electric Blue Watermelon album really only had one 'southern rock' song on there called "Moonshine." Otherwise, it is a mix of rock, blues, and North Mississippi-style sounds of Otha Turner and the like. They do hit that groove often, especially when the slide guitar is broken out. But, I think they do their own thing reverent of the North Mississippi blues scene.

"The band has always drawn deeply from the style and repertory of Delta bluesmen."

Actually they are far more influenced by the Hill Country bluesmen as opposed to the Delta Bluesmen. Check ou tthe "Tate County Hill country Blue" disc available on Jim Dickenson's Zebra Ranch site.

Just got the new album. It's actually very good, possibly my favorite by them.

I saw therm. They were great. Esp with Alvin, who stepped the whole band up a notch. Luther is a few steps ahead of the rest of the band (w/o Alvin). No offense intended. Bass player Chris and Drummer Cody are very good. Luther is EXCEPTIONAL.

I liked Alvin's opening set too. Very, very good overall.

Look, what can I say Warren and Derek are my ear marks. ABB, DTB and Mule too. Ruins me for a lot of others. LOL.

Alvin is a great blues man though and will be around a while. I've seen him before too and like his songs. I liked him very much with the NMAS. Felt he actually rounded out the sound of the band.

Saw these guys at the Roo a few years back and they smoked. They would be great addition to Wanee or the MJ.

NMAS - World Boogie from the Hill Country of Mississippi!!

it is funny when writers toss the Delta in there; the North MS sound is based on a one chord drone. and good lord nmas can bring it, each and every night. never seen a bad showl, and have seen them in multitudes of configurations, from the stripped down two man gigs from 95-96 to the whole dang hill country review at Bonnaroo.

they are able to communicate very well while playing, esp when they are loose with the setlists, and segueing from one tune to the next.

favorite tune in concert is Shimmy She Wobble > Cried the Blues > Blues Power > Sitting on Top of the World > Shimmy
and i'll listen to Coal Black Maddie > Skinny Women > Po' Black Maddie anyday.

and remember: CHEW IS THE GLUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
