13. Luther Dickinson And The Sons Of Mudboy – Onward And Upward

Luther Dickinson And The Sons Of Mudboy - Onward And UpwardMudboy was Jim Dickinson. His band was The Neutrons and his idea was la musique v̩rit̩ Рcapture the music the way it happens in the studio. Jim died last year and his sons and friends gathered to celebrate his life with a stunning set of blues tunes and a simple two track recorder. They recorded these songs the way they were happening. Jim would be proud.
