OffBeat's Review of Rock in Roll Blues

Guitarist and singer Luther Dickinson’s new solo record has a retrospective aura to it. Both musically and lyrically, Dickinson is looking back at his past exploits and reflecting upon them. The sound of the record is simple and a little raw. It’s all acoustic guitar, upright bass, drums, and some fife. It is more in the vein of his South Memphis String Band or Sons of Mudboy (dedication to his father, Jim Dickinson) rather than the heavy, loud sound of the North Mississippi All Stars...

Stereophile Magazine - Record Review

4.5 stars out of 5 - Stereophile MagazineStereophile recently selected Amy Lavere's new album Runaway Diary, produced by Luther Dickinson, as the 'Recording of the Month' for their September issue. "Runaway Diary is the sound of stars aligning, both personally (judging by her lyrics) and musically, much of the latter due to a knockout production job by Luther Dickinson. The album's sound is clear and spacious, and while clearly focused on her voice, is immensely attractive for its spare, tasteful arrangements..."

"Rock 'n Roll Blues" Now Available In Stores & Online!

Rock 'n Roll Blues, the new studio album from Luther Dickinson, is now available in stores and online. You can purchase the physical CD from Amazon and the digital CD from iTunes "Rock 'n Roll Blues is acoustic folk-punk -country blues with juke joint drums recorded live to eight track tape in a race against my 40th birthday," Dickinson said. "As brutally personal as the record is, I hope it communicates. The first song, "Vandalize," is over twenty years old, and I finished the last song, "Karmic Debt," the morning it was recorded- the whole record tells my story of a life in music."

"The musician jokes on RnR Blues are so true they're not funny. The aesthetic of the recording is as personal as the lyrics, 'dead strings and ribbon mics' with double drums using no cymbals, recorded tape to tape with no processing," he adds.

The vinyl will be released on March 25 and is available for pre-order now from Amazon.
