Make A Move
Hill Country Revue
Razor & Tie
By James Calemine

The North Mississippi Allstars’ Cody Dickinson formed the Hill Country Revue in 2008. The group includes Cody on guitar, the Allstars’ Chris Chew on bass, Duwayne Burnside on guitar, Ed Cleveland on drums and Dixie Dan Coburn on vocals. Cody’s lifelong friend Gary Burnside—son of blues legend R.L. Burnside, wrote many of the songs on this CD. “Alice Mae” begins Make A Move with blistering riffs that instill a wide-open abandon. The title track showcases Cody and Smithart’s potent guitar chemistry. Cody Dickinson stands as a talented guitarist in his own right. These songs contain bona fide mojo...

This band never strays from mean-ass blues, but they extend musical boundaries to travel into a present day's rock and roll landscape. “Dirty Shirt” resembles the The Allstars’ rhythms, and these swirling guitars send a message these cats ain’t messin’ around. “You Can Make It" retains an Allman Brothers guitar intro and outtro, but once Jim Dickinson’s piano rolls in, the song diversifies and elevates to ‘hit’ status.

“Let Me Love You” emits a visceral street blues groove evoking tones of Johnny “Guitar” Watkins and Funkadelic’s Ed Hazel. This is not sissy music. “Let’s Talk About Me and You” conjures Hendrix’s Band of Gypsies. Cody also recruited his brother Luther for additional musical gris-gris.

“Georgia Women”, a junkyard blues ditty, indicates this song will send the female folk dancing. Isn’t that what rock and roll is all about? Getting the girls to dance? “Highway Blues”, a morning-after roadsong conveys a restless mood from a lonesome driver considering love gone wrong as the miles peel away.

“Growing Up In Mississippi” pays homage to native environs these musicians grew up in as they create a deep and wide pocket. Two live songs close the CD; “You Can Make It” reveals The Hill Country Revue emerge as a band to see live. “Growing Up In Mississippi” closes this CD, and reminds the listener Make A Move caters to music lovers waiting on no-holds-barred ethos. Make A Move documents another chapter in the saga of a generation of Mississippi musicians who continue to make music their own way while carrying on the tradition of their kith and kin…
