Blue Mountain Returns

After a seven-year hiatus, Oxford, Mississippi's Blue Mountain return with the fantastic Midnight in Mississippi. If you're not familiar with Blue Mountain, they were quite possibly the best live act during the short-lived mid-to-late 90s "era". They spent many-a-night opening for Son Volt, Wilco and countless others. After bandmates Cary Hudson and Laurie Stirratt (sister of Wilco's John Stirratt) divorced, Blue Mountain was no more. Until now. And they have returned in fine form.

In addition to the new record, they've also released a collection of b-sides and alternate versions of previously-released material. Both can be purchased for a mere $18.
