Hernando
North Mississippi Allstars
Songs of the South
By James Calemine

Hernando is the town in Mississippi where legendary producer Jim Dickinson raised his sons Luther and Cody. Jim Dickinson produced this album at his Zebra Ranch Studio in Coldwater, Mississippi. Hernando marks the fifth studio release from the North Mississippi Allstars.

These 11 songs define a heavy blues-rock foundation and a deep groove, but avert from indulgent jams. With each listen one begins to hear a complex blend of styles. As usual, the Allstars allow local auxiliary talents, such as Jimbo Mathus, to participate in the recording process. The Allstars take no prisoners on Hernando

The gritty opener, “Shake”, sounds like some Friday midnight soundtrack at Junior Kimbrough’s old juke joint…this one seems to dare trouble. “Keep The Devil Down” proves the Allstars rank as a great American trio. This song deals with addictions, jail, temptations and the dark prince hounding one’s trail. Luther’s guitar prowess continues to expand and amaze. One can hear threads of Band of Gypsies, The Dixie Flyers and Mudboy & The Nuetrons influences in this song’s mix.

“Soldier” emerges as a dark, dirty riff that eliminates any wasted notes or soft-hearted nonsense when Luther sings about “a soldier on the cross”. Cody Dickinson plays his electric washboard on “Eaglebird”. The Allstars cover Champion Jack Dupree’s “I’d Love To Be A Hippy” in a very lowdown, un-hippy musical fashion. Luther even injects a few jazzy chord progressions indicating his wide musical scope on that track.


Cody Dickinson wrote the upbeat “Mizzip” which is sure to send the young ladies dancing at live shows. On “Blow Out” Amy Lavere plays upright bass, East Memphis Slim handles piano, while Jimmy Davis and Jimbo Mathus sing, leaving Luther to only cover his incandescent guitar parts that would make Keith Richards grin.

“Rooster’s Blues” evokes on the point rock and roll, yet it’s mean and funky enough to fit on any early Funkadelic album…strands of all sorts of influence flash in just a few chords. It’s their upbringing…the DNA…

A slow, dark “Long Way Home” closes out the CD. The Allstars take the listener on a musical journey where all roads lead back to Hernando...

A ugg boots clearance recent survey found that one out of five Americans teenage or older want an iPad. No wonder Apple is selling three million iPads a month. It's the fastest-selling single product in the history of consumer electronics. Most buyers are choosing an iPad as a supplement to their current computers -- for watching movies in bed, like I do, or reading books in my easy chair when there's nothing good on TV ugg boots clearance. The iPad pretty much has the personal side of computing covered. But what about the computer side? What about the tasks you do on your laptop or on your desktop computer ugg boots clearance? But I'm convinced that many of you would find the iPad a delightful replacement for a typical laptop computer, whether a Windows PC or Mac, if you mostly use a laptop for three typical functions -- e-mail, social networking (through Facebook, for example) and Web browsing ugg boots clearance. What about occasional word processing? Apple's word processor, called Pages, is outstanding on the iPad. (A bonus: It also works easily with Microsoft Word documents, both reading them and saving them.) If you need software that can show and create PowerPoint presentations, iPad software called Keynote can do that nicely. There's even an Excel-compatible program called Numbers ugg boots clearance. All three of these productivity programs -- called apps -- sell for only $10 each. Getting something equivalent to Microsoft Office for only $30 is surely a steal ugg boots clearance. There are many, either free or a couple of dollars, at the App Store ugg boots outlet. Could an iPad be your only computer? Not for long. It gets updates via free software called iTunes running on a standard computer. When you plug the iPad into the computer using a USB cable, iTunes transfers the updates to your iPad ugg boots outlet. (iTunes is also used to add music, books, podcasts, university lectures, TV shows and movies to an iPad.) But if my experience is a guide, the iPad can function well as a replacement for a laptop. If you buy one, be sure to get the Keyboard Dock and the Camera Connection Kit. Photos look spectacular on the 10-inch screen ugg boots clearance.
