I just love that album. I listen to it over and over again.

Parts of it remind me so much of EAP era Allman Brothers Band music. Just great great soulfull jammin music.

I'm just wondering, have the North Mississippi All Stars, or Robert Randolph, or anyone else involved in that recording released any kind of follow up albums, that are similar?

a great album indeed. there has not been a follow up unfortunately. John Medeski played keys on it btw. not sure the last time they all performed, but Luther played Keep Your Lamps Trimmed... w/ WSP this spring. what a rockin record that really moves ya. try locating some of their shows from one of the live recording archive sites, they are taper friendly.

Another vote for that album!

Beautiful, soulful, vocal-like pedal steel dominates the record. Some raw rockers too.

The Word is on the 2010 Jam Cruise in January. Maybe a short tour to follow. I kicked myself for not going to see them in Boulder (too far a drive I rationalized) during their first and only brief tour.

They did a one-off show in NYC in late December 2007 and I was fortunate enough to go. They were absolutely fantastic!!! If you get the chance you must go! They had John Medeski on keys and I left there smiling from ear to ear and feeling uplifted- and I'm an atheist to boot. If they come around NYC again I'm there.

I just had to do a quick search on this one and found a show from April of this year at the Highland Ballroom that Randolph sat in with NMA on archive.org. Nice stuff.

I bought The Word album back in 2001 and pretty much "wore it out" over the next year or so. I tried to go see them in Boulder in early 2002, but the show was sold out. I did see Luther Dickinson sit in with Robert Randolph and the Family Band at the Gothic Theatre in Denver back in 2003. Frankly, I don't listen to The Word at this point as it served as more of an intro to the genre. I caught The Campbell Brothrers in Telluride in 2003 and they quickly became my favorite from then on. I highly recommend the Arhoolie compilations from the 90's that detail the authentic originators of "Sacred Steel" - Willie Eason, The Campbell Brothers, Aubrey Ghent, Sonny Treadwell etc.

Thanks for the link Jer. Unfortunately I can only stream it cause I'm having some internet issues right now. Putting this one in my favorites for when I get this damn computer fixed or replaced. Loved the show we saw with Jason Crosby a few years ago. I wish they came to NYC/LI more often.

Check out the new John Scofield cd "Piety Street". It's a very killer album, all gospel tunes, very different from what Sco normally does. It has John Cleary on keys and vocals, George Porter Jr and Ricky Fataar for the rhythm section. Check it out!
