Amour is the first collaboration between Colin Linden (Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, ABC-TV show “Nashville)” and Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars, Black Crowes) and consists of classic love songs from the Americana world. Both Linden and Dickinson are true veterans of roots music, having played with and produced some of the biggest names in the business, while displaying the mantle of countless awards and accolades to reflect that.

The album was produced by Linden, recorded at Blackbird Studios in Nashville, and features a backing band (dubbed The Tennessee Valentines) of Dominic Davis (bass), Bryan Owings (drums), Fats Kaplin (violin and accordion), and Kevin McKendree (keyboards). Linden and Dickinson recruited several guest vocalists for the album – the legendary Billy Swan who sings lead on “Lover Please”, as well as vocalists Rachel Davis, Ruby Amanfu, Sam Palladio and Jonathan Jackson.

Some musical combinations are so good, you wonder why they didn’t happen before they did. This is the case with Colin Linden and Luther Dickinson. Amour is an album filled with familiar songs performed in a very different way. It’s part soul, part blues, and all good. Set aside some time where you can listen to this album with no distraction. Just pour yourself a beverage, sit back, and enjoy.
