Today the latest album from the North Mississippi All-Stars, Electric Blue Watermelon, was released today. It features, amongst others, Lucinda Williams and Robert Randolph although Duwayne Burnside left the band after only one album. I bought it during a lunchtime trip over to Mad City Music and have it playing now. It’s a lot more bluesy than their previous two efforts – a bit more like Shake Hands With Shorty. Still, there is a bit of rap on “No Mo” and a stab at funk with “Stompin’ My Foot” so you’ve got some old, some new.
