Black Hen album "Things About' Comin' My Way" (A Tribute to the Mississippi Sheiks) makes exclusive list of "THE TOP 35 MOST IMPORTANT ROOTS ALBUMS OF THE LAST 25 YEARS", from The Alternate Root Magazine!
"The brainchild of producer and guitar virtuoso Steve Dawson, the Tribute to the Mississippi Sheiks not only brought the music of America's first "popular band" to the fore, but it also was a music history lesson and civics lesson rolled into one. The Mississippi Sheiks were the first black musicians to play in the White House and were the first popular band to record and tour. The album was a who's who of Canadian and American roots musicians including John Hammond, Colin Linden, Bruce Cockburn, The North Mississippi All-Stars, Madeleine Peyroux, The Carolina Chocolate Drops and Jim Byrnes." (The Alternate Root)
