Dion Tank Full of Blues I Read It in the Rolling Stone



Rolling Stone

Unlike the previous installments in Dion's blues trilogy, Bronx in Blue (2006) and Son of Skip James (2007), Tank Full of Blues is mostly new originals. Dion adds a local tang to the electric-Mississippi glide "Holly Brown" – when he's riding the rails, it's the uptown D train – and his tremolo-guitar nod to my line of work, "I Read It (in the Rolling Stone)," includes the knockout line, "Sometimes I have to ask myself/What would my man Robert Plant do?"
