Format: Audio CD
Coming five years after their impressive Shake Hands With Shorty, Electric Blue Watermelon is North Mississippi Allstar's fifth and finest album so far and was named after a loosely assembled band who played blues festival gigs in Memphis during the 1960s. This diverse collection features old-school rock & roll, electrified blues rock, '60s psychedelia, country, hip-hop, and a dash of alt-rock sensibility.

The magnificant opener is blisteringly ragged version of Charley Patton s "Mississippi Boll Weevil Blues," recalls their dynamic interpretation of"Shake 'em on Down". Featuring Luther Dickinson's slide guitar work and bassist Chris Chew's blues-funk bassline. it breaks down to just washboard and Cody Dickinson's thumping backbeat. This song demonstrates the band's unique ability to do a wonderful update of an ancient song.

As a complete contrast the following song is the hip hop laced "No Mo". As Luther reminisces about his childhood, he is joined by guest rapper Al Kapone. Notably the final line is "the Mississippi Delta was a jungle before the white man came."

Both "Teasin' Brown" and "Hurry Up Sunrise," were worked up by Luther from tapes of the late fife-and-drum-master Othar Turner talking and improvising lyrics on his front porch. While "Hurry Up Sunrise is a playful duet with Lucinda Williams, "Teasing Brown" is a fine rocker, as is "Bang Bang Lulu", with its sing-along chorus and mammoth percussion by the Rising Star band.

"Moonshine" is another reflective tune with Luther recalling lost idols like Junior Kimbrough with a Duane Allman like slide tone and a fine solo.

Coming five years after their impressive Shake Hands With Shorty, Electric Blue Watermelon is North Mississippi Allstar's fifth and finest album so far and was named after a loosely assembled band led by Memphis musician Lee Baker, who played blues festival gigs in Memphis during the 1960s. This diverse collection features old-school rock & roll, electrified blues rock, '60s psychedelia, country, hip-hop, and a dash of alt-rock sensibility.

The magnificant opener is blisteringly version of Charley Patton s "Mississippi Boll Weevil Blues," which they attack in a similar fashion to their breakthrough cover of "Shake 'em on Down". Featuring Luther Dickinson's slide guitar work and bassist Chris Chew's blues-funk bassline the tune breaks down to just washboard and Cody Dickinson's thumping backbeat. This song demonstrates the band's unique ability to do a wonderful update of an ancient song.
