Outside Memphis, Jim Dickinson is better known for his work with Ry Cooder, Bob Dylan, The Replacements, Big Star, The Rolling Stones and many others.... But in his hometown, he is remembered as a member of the underground super-group Mud Boy and the Neutrons with Sid Selvidge, Jimmy Crosthwait and the great late Lee Baker. During this tribute at the Levitt Shell in Overton Park the month after Dickinson died in 2009, his son Luther joined Crosthwait and Selvidge onstage with Selvidge's son Steve, Paul Taylor, and veteran sessions player Chris Ethridge to carry on the tradition. The Shell was the site of many Mud Boy shows dating back to the original Blues Festivals in the '60s.
