Info for World Boogie Is Coming

This is the seventh studio record for the band recently crowned 'Americana music luminaries' by National Public Radio. They produced it themselves at their own Zebra Ranch Studios in Coldwater, MS, aside from a day in the studio with Robert Plant (and his harmonica) at Memphis legendary Royal Studios.The Dickinson Brothers did it with the help of long-time friends, Lightnin Malcolm, Duwayne and Garry Burnside, Kenny Brown, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Sharde Thomas, Sid and Steve Selvidge, Plant & others. World Boogie is Coming is the record that perfectly ties it all together, fusing the elements that have made the Allstars special while pushing the bands sound further into the future than ever before.

North Mississippi Allstars formed in 1996; the product of a special time for modern Mississippi country blues. Brothers Luther and Cody Dickinson soaked up the music of their father, Memphis legend Jim Dickinson, and absorbed the North Mississippi legacy while playing and shaking it down in the juke joints with their blues ancestors. R.L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, Otha Turner and their musical families were at their peak, making classic records and touring the world. Eventually, Luther (guitar, vocals) and Cody (drums, vocals) formed the North Mississippi Allstars.

„Although they have mixed elements of hip-hop and alternative rock into their repertoire, the North Mississippi Allstars are really at their best when they blow out the rust on the kind of Mississippi folk-blues numbers they learned firsthand from the likes of R.L. Burnside, Junior Kimbrough, and Othar Turner. Essentially a swampy, rootsy power blues duo comprised of brothers Luther Dickinson (guitar, slide guitar, vocals) and Cody Dickinson (drums), the sons of legendary Memphis producer and musician Jim Dickinson, the Allstars have always had one foot in the traditional cane and drum bands of North Mississippi, another in the electric modal drone version of the blues practiced at local juke joints and house parties, and yet another in the grand rock power stomp style of Led Zeppelin. It all added up to a powerfully original and yet somehow traditional-sounding version of 21st century blues-rock that had them sounding like no other band. After five albums of such fare, each a ragged, back-porch, Deep South boogie fest, the brothers went on hiatus in 2009 after the death of their father. When they came back together and re-entered the studio, they took one of Jim Dickinson's favorite blessings, "world boogie is coming," as a project title, and began laying down tracks in a loose, ambient manner, leaving in bits of background conversation, footsteps, wind, rain, whatever sounds happened, then flew in archival field recordings of Turner and Burnside and built from them, aided by friends and fellow musicians Lightnin' Malcolm, Duwayne Burnside and Garry Burnside (R.L.'s sons), Kenny Brown, Alvin Youngblood Hart, Shardé Thomas (Turner's granddaughter), Chris Chew, Sid Selvidge and Steve Selvidge, Robert Plant (on harmonica), and others. The end result is NMA's masterpiece, each track a fascinating blend of old and new, a seamless, chugging look at Mississippi country-folk-boogie, with Luther's jagged, commanding guitar riffs and haunting slide runs sewing everything together, while Cody's powerful, thundering drums march everything across the landscape. The version of the traditional blues "Rollin 'n Tumblin" here is a pure sonic blast that straddles two centuries at once, while "Boogie" sounds like a giant electric marching band stomping across the land. NMA's version of Junior Kimbrough's "Meet Me in the City" here almost sounds like power pop, but filtered through a rustic moonshine filter. Every track here is like that, roaring into the 21st century sounding big, urgent, and huge, but so grounded in the local folk-blues tradition that each track seems to carry imprinted DNA that says boogie all over it. World boogie is coming? It's here, and these guys boogie like the world has no choice but to surrender to the fact.“ (Steve Leggett, AMG)

North Mississippi Allstars

Produced by The Dickinson Brothers

Digitally remastered

North Mississippi Allstars
Brothers Luther (guitar, mandolin, vocals) and Cody Dickinson (drums, sampling) along with gospel bassist Chris Chew make up this power trio. The Dickinson brothers were born in Fayette County, TN, later moving to northern Mississippi, where the boys soaked up the country–blues sound of the region from artists like Mississippi Fred McDowell and R.L Burnside.

While blues is the chief inspiration for the Allstars, the band also mixes in an alternative aesthetic (comparable to outfits like the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion or G. Love and Special Sauce), and a traditional rock, jam–band sensibility like Phish or Gomez.

The Allstars debuted at Dixie Fried '96, sharing the stage with Othar Turner and R. L. Burnside. The show was critically acclaimed in a Memphis newspaper as the Best Show of the Year. The Allstars soon began playing regularly at B.B. King’s Blues Hall and The Black Diamond on Beale Street in Memphis, TN. In the spring of 2000, the band released their debut album, Shake Hands With Shorty, which garnered them a GRAMMY Award nomination.

The North Mississippi Allstars' highly anticipated follow-up 51 Phantom, picks up where Shake Hands With Shorty left off — this time showcasing the songwriting talents of the brothers Dickinson, while continuing to delve into their southern roots. The album continues the band's love of groove–inspired jams and modern boogie, with a taut selection of original compositions. 51 Phantom resonates with classic melody and youthful groove.

Produced by Luther and Cody's father Jim Dickinson (The Replacements, Big Star, Ry Cooder, Primal Scream), 51 Phantom is a gritty and grooving masterpiece. From the snarl of "Snakes in My Bushes" to the anthemic title track, through the sweet ballads of "Leavin" and "Up Over Yonder," the Allstars have created a focused and brilliant masterpiece that sees them evolving their sound, while still keeping in touch with their Mississippi roots.

This album contains no booklet.
