Thought I'd seen a thread like this around here somewhere.

Anyhow, somewhat long time fan.

"How I Wish My Train Would Come" off of Keys to The Kingdom....jeez, what a song.

Amongst all their cool songs, hard to narrow a list of favorites, but this one would definitely be on it.

I really dig the NMAS.

Still have to pick up the new release and even worse: i didn't buy tickets for the current European tour that brought them to a few cities relatively nearby. Choices, choices.......

I love the steady output from the Dickenson Brother's, not just NMA, but their other work also. Luther had his work in the South Memphis String Band and The Wandering while Cody with Hill Country Revue to mention a couple.

I would love to hear more HCR. I loved their sound. Alice Mae jumped out off the ipod today. The NMA have had recent gems in Hernando, Keys To The Kingdom, & the newly released World Boogie Is Coming.

Jumping show live, Lightnin' Malcolm fills in for Chris on bass. Chris will be missed. He added songs to the set lists with his vocals and soul to the stage. Still a great show. It's own flavor not to be denied.

Here's a couple pic's from Irving Plaza 9/11/13.

Love NMA . I have to say my favorite album is Electric Blue Watermelon. Hurry Up Sunrise is such a great song to.

Yep. Love the NMA as well.

Very hard to pick an absolute favorite but I still remember how the debut Shake Hands With Shorty knocked me on my backside right from the start .

I knew I had a new favorite band about 4 tracks in...

World Boogie is HERE...

Shake Hands with Shorty still gets me movin'..... it comes up on my ipod frequently.....

They are even better live. Too bad Chris isn't with them, he was a big presence..... love him singing 'I'd Love to be a hippie, but my hair won't grow that long.............'

Is Chris totally done with them? Seems like he has been on again-off again.

I've seen them probably 15 times. In honesty, I never thought they came close in the studio to what they do live.....Until 'World Boogie'. Maybe I'm going nuts, but it's like their version 'Electric Ladyland'. Just a sonic masterpiece. A great headphone album, yet a great loud party a$% shake album......Just nasty.....

Someone said Luther is like this connection between; Jimi, Duane, and all the hill country masters. Burnside etc......I agree.........

I saw them for the first time at the now defunct Vegoose Festival in Vegas in 2005. I had heard the name NMAS and out of curiosity I made a point of catching their set which was at 1:00 or 2:00 in the afternoon on Saturday. They COMPLETELY knocked me out, in fact they were my favorite act of the weekend, and that's at a Festival which included Gov't Mule, Robert Randolph and Phil Lesh and Friends.

I'm disappointed that Chris Chew is no longer in the mix; anyone know why? He had health issues for awhile, but that was some time ago, maybe three or four years back. Chris really added a lot of soul and funk to the mix and I wonder if it could be the same without him.

I don't have all of their stuff, but I have four records, my favorites being Electric Blue Watermelon and Hill Country Review (Live @ Bonnaroo). I'll be getting the new one eventually, just so much on my to buy list right now.

Did anyone see them when DuWayne Burnside was with them? I did once, in NYC. It was different from the NMAS sound to me. Wasn't bad, just different. Took quite a bit away from Luther.

Great minds Don....

I did the same with my brother who played it for three of his friends, all of whom bought copies .

For awhile, I was playing Shorty for any music friends who visited. I loved it that much.

Ironically it was my friend Alan (who posts here occasionally as BANANAMAN) who turned me onto Shorty as he saw them open for the ABB (if I remember correctly) and promptly bought Shorty and played it for me for the first time when I visited

I like this one from the new record, "Meet Me In The City". There's something earthy and soulful about their sound which has always grabbed me:

Chris Chew was in a diabetic coma as recently as last year. So his health issues are ongoing.

I saw them in Chattanooga in August and they dedicated a song to him from the stage.
