Much as it burns the butts of some purists, the blues have hung on because of the undying interest of succeeding waves of rock and roll youngbloods. Spawn of legendary producer Jim Dickinson, this crew keeps the blues and Dixie-fried jam traditions energized. With lots of face time spent with Hill Country blues greats, the North Mississippi Allstars dig deeper back than most young blues players; their four strong discs are evidence. The Dickinson boys were last heard consorting with Blues Explosioneer Jon Spencer. The threesome released The Man Who Lives for Love early this year.
