About the North Mississippi Allstars
Brothers Cody (sampling, drums) and Luther Dickinson (vocals, mandolin, guitar) would originally team up for the punk band DDT. In 1996, they would get together with bass player Chris Chew to form the rootsier outfit known as the North Mississippi Allstars. Hailing from Fayette County, Tennessee, Luther and Cody were sons of Jim Dickinson, a masterful Memphis-based producer. As children, Luther and Cody would relocate to Mississippi with their family, where they were inspired by the region's country blues legends, R.L. Burnside and Mississippi Fred McDowell. The North Mississippi Allstars are also known for their excellence as live performers with alternative sensibilities and hard rock leanings, leading to comparisons to the Black Keys, the John Spencer Blues Explosion, and Phish. Before releasing their debut album, Shake Hands with Shorty, the Allstars would hone their craft by touring as openers for a variety of other bands. After their second album, 51 Phantom, the Allstars would collaborate with Robert Randolph on steel pedal and John Medeski on the organ for a blues-gospel side project called the Word.
The North Mississippi Allstars would get back together for the 2003 release Polaris. The following year, they would release a live album entitled Hill Country Revue: Live at Bonnaroo. 2005's Electric Blue Watermelon would feature a number of top notch guests, such as Otha Turner, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Robert Randolph, and Lucinda Williams. The group would also support John Hiatt that year for his album Master of Disaster. Other side projects ensued. Luther would sign up as the Black Crowes lead guitarist in 2007 in addition to his Allstars duties, while Cody and Chew would embark on an outfit called Hill Country Revue. The following year, the prolific core triad of Chew and the Dickinson brothers would come together for the 2008 release entitled Hernando. The album would be the first release from the Allstar's very own label, Songs of the South. Following Hernando, 2009 would see a double disc release of live shows entitled Do It Like We Used to Do.
Sadly, Luther and Cody's legendary dad Jim Dickinson would pass away at the end of 2009. By way of tribute, Luther, Cody, and Chew would come together at the family's own Zebra Studios to record a collection of original tunes in March 2010. Renowned musicians and family friends would contribute to the effort, such as Jack Ashford, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Spooner Oldham, Mavis Staples, and Ry Cooder. The end result would be passionate, gritty album entitled Keys to the Kingdom on the Allstar's Songs of the South label. This new repertoire would also include a cover of "Stuck Inside of Mobile (With the Memphis Blues Again)" by Bob Dylan, performed in a lonesome single-chord blues style. This release would come out at the beginning of 2011. The following year, Jim Dickinson's posthumous project, I'm Just Dead, I'm Not Gone would come out. This release from the senior Dickinson had been recorded in 2006 in Memphis and would feature the North Mississippi Allstars as the backup band.
Shake Hands with Shorty, the debut album of the North Mississippi Allstars, would be a great success when it was released in 2000. Both this debut and their sophomore album the following year, 51 Phantom, would garner the North Mississippi Allstars Grammy nominations in the category of Best Contemporary Blues Album. They would get a third nomination in that category for 2005's Electric Blue Watermelon. In 2013, World Boogie is Coming would be released and is widely considered to be the North Mississippi Allstars' best album to date.
Luther and Cody Dickinson's musical dreams would come full circle with the 2003 of release Polaris, a collaboration with Duwayne Burnside, son of their Mississippi blues inspiration R.L. Burnside.
