This album was recorded live at the 2004 Bonaroo music festival in Tennessee, where the North Mississippi Allstars invited some family and friends, including R.L. Burnside and the Rising Star Fife and Drum Band, to join them onstage. The result, as captured here, is a larger-than-life version of the Allstars' world boogie. The music is tight, the sound is huge and Luther Dickinson has ample opportunity to cut loose one of the nastiest guitar sounds on the planet. Consult track six ("Never in All My Days") for a quick take on the dominant vibe of "Hill Country Revue," a genuine earthquake of a blues/rock record.—PVV
