I'm finishing up a really fun, in-depth NMAS feature for Relix... it got me going through my archives and I found the review I wrote for Shake Hands for Shorty in 2000... Fun for me to read why I thought the band was so fresh and important.

Great review, Alan. And I think you could change the album and song titles and say a lot of similar stuff about World Boogie is Coming. I did a silly little review of that for the local blues society and called it the "most original unoriginal recording I've heard since 2000's Shake Hands with Shorty."

I agree... And that's a great line about most original unoriginal...

My piece for Relix includes this line:

"World Boogie Is Coming brings them full circle; it’s easily their most raw recording since Shorty."

Love the article.

I'm seeing NMA for the first time in a couple of weeks, really looking forward to it!

Nicely done. "Purists intent on recreating the postwar Chicago music of Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf have locked the blues into a museum, while Stevie Ray Vaughannabe’s have emphasized histrionics and virtuosity to the exclusion of almost everything else sacred to the music". I find that to be a very insightful comment to demonstrate the extremes of the opposite ends of the pendulum. But I believe there is still a solid foundation of the middle ground out there. Truly, I love NMAS live in concert, but their studio recordings never really resonated with me that much. But I am going to revisit their CD's with an open mind thanks to you.

Thanks Chitown.. My own preference is for the overly traditional over the guitar flashers....

I just spent a lot of time listening to the NMAS catalog as I wrote the article... It's a bit uneven, but lots of good stuff on every album..

Luther actually has a pretty profound Paul Westerberg/Replacements influence, which some won't like, but I do... lots of dickey and duane influences pop up.

Try spotify and just start listening.

I'm a Pandora guy myself, but with the same result. I love my Blues station. From Elmore James to Otis Rush, etc. I think locally that Lonnie Brooks has done a good job of keeping a more traditional style of blues alive for the past 30 years. At least in my opinion. And he's approaching 80 years old himself. Dion Payton is another, but I haven't seen his name in a few years or so. But I've been listening to a lot of Pandora Blues lately on the headphones through my Android when I turn in for the night, and the overall variety is amazing. Worth the $36.00 per year to not hear the commercials.

Al, I really dug your review of Shake Hands With Shorty. I've been into the band ever since I saw them for the first time at a festival in Vegas, must have been 2005. I thought they stole the show that weekend, and the festival included Gov't Mule and Phil Lesh. I need to get the new one. Is Chris Chew on it? I hope so.
