Jesse’s new record, “Gulf Coast Sessions,” just came out, featuring “[Lo-Fi Lover](https://youtu.be/HKPl2bZMlg8)” as the first single and video. Tonight he joins the Troubled Men to find out just how Lo he can go. Topics include some killer take-out, a grocery switcheroo, a government contract, childhood trips, Huey P.

TMP150 Luther Dickinson: North Mississippi Allstars

By the time the North Mississippi Allstars guitarist and singer started playing with Hill Country masters R.L. Burnside and Othar Turner, he’d already received a firm grounding in roots music at the knee of his record producer and piano player father, Jim Dickinson (Big Star, Ry Cooder, Bob Dylan). Luther’s traveled the world spreading the blues rock gospel, but after growing up in the Memphis mayhem of the Mudboy & the Neutrons orbit, the Troubled Men Podcast should feel like a return to the briar patch. Topics include the 150th episode, a vaccine, Holy Week, a letter of reference, the Rolling Stones at Muscle Shoals, the Dixie Fliers, Bill Eggleston, Pat Rainer, “Big Star 3rd,” “Sugar Ditch Revisited,” open tuning, the Mingus bio, a father’s advice, first demos, Roland Janes, the Hodges brothers, ambition, the Black Crows, transcendence, conflict, the Allmans on acid, the Sons of Mudboy, a memorial recording session, and much more.
