Luther and Cody Dickinson from the North Miss. Allstars just lost their dad/producer Jim Dickinson to heart disease

The North Mississippi Allstars have played Colorado so many times, that the band’s practically become adopted by the state.

Two-thirds of the Allstars consists of brothers Luther and Cody Dickinson, and it was very sad to hear that their dad Jim Dickinson died on Saturday.

Jim Dickinson was a talent in his own right. He helped shape the Memphis sound  and he recorded and produced albums with Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, The Replacements and Aretha Franklin.

The senior Dickinson died after dealing with several months of heart and intestinal problems, and he was only 67.

R.I.P.
