World Boogie, Baby!
"I spent all morning writing today's post and Blogger ate it."
Please watch the EPK posted above. It explains part of what I was writing about before Blogger sucked it and my soul into its heartless space of cyber. I went on to say something about how I've been listening to the North Mississippi All-Stars since their 2000 debut and for all this time, I've liked but never loved what the sons of legendary producer and Memphis madman Jim Dickinson laid down on record. I love what they're about, but they just never nailed it, though 2005's "Electric Blue Watermelon" almost did.
But now there is "World Boogie Is Coming." This is it! Luther & Cody Dickinson nailed it in a big way.
Released in September, this is proof of just how exciting music can be.
If you think you don't need to hear another version of "Rollin' & Tumblin'" or another groove on "Casino Boogie," think again. Listen to this loud and you will get lost. One song is more creative than the next. The love for southern country blues and funk oozes from the grooves.
