Just over a month after music legend Jim Dickinson died in 2009, his son Luther Dickinson and many great Memphis area musicians gathered to pay tribute to the sage of their scene in a 4 hour all-star memorial revue at the Levitt Shell in Memphis' Overton Park. Jimbo Mathus led this rendition of "Louise," a song Jim Dickinson recorded on his 1972 solo LP for Atlantic Records: "Dixie Fried". The Shell was the site of countless performances by Dickinson and his underground super-group: Mud-Boy & the Neutrons dating back to the original Country Blues Festivals in the '60s.
