North Mississippi Allstars: September 11, 2013 Irving Plaza – Flac/MP3/Streaming

[still from this video]

I have consistently made the contention that Luther Dickinson is the best living guitarist. I’ve seen North Mississippi Allstars at least a half-dozen times, and on every occasion Luther has amazed with his ability to play authentic blues, honky tonk, rock, country and steel guitar. Luther even has a specialized guitar made from a coffee can. Sure, its the talent and precision that impresses but there’s also a indefinable soul to his playing. Last week, our most recent NMAS experience was at Irving Plaza for a nearly two-hour show part of the tour to ostensibly promote the newest NMAS album World Boogie Is Coming. The album continues the band’s output of sterling mix of American music. Its also the first album to feature the full-time contributions of Lightning Malcolm who has replaced Chris Chew as the full time touring bassist. But the show for me was really all about Luther’s guitar playing, and on this night as expected he did not disappoint.

I recorded this set with the Sennheiser MKH-8040 cards mounted high in the middle of the floor. The sound in the venue was mixed quite well and we’re happy to present this excellent recording. Enjoy!
