Things About Comin’ My Way features a stellar cast of talents capturing the illicit thrills and cold shivers embodied in the Sheiks’ hugely popular tunes in the early 1930s. Contributions by Geoff Muldaur (“The World is Going Wrong”), Jim Byrnes (“Jailbird Love Song”) and the North Mississippi Allstars (“It’s Backfiirin’ Now”) tap into the rough-and-tumble charm of the Sheiks’ instrumental style. Madeleine Peyroux luxuriates in a sultry mood for “Please Baby,” balancing the desolation pervading Kelly Joe Phelps’ jazzy reading of “Livin’ in a Strain.” For pure Delta authenticity, the Carolina Chocolate Drops’ haunting version of “Sitting on Top of the World” and Bob Brozman’s virtuosic treatment of “Somebody’s Gotta Help You” take high honors. The most startling — and possibly the most powerful — moment here is provided by Robin Holcomb’s radical reworking of the ominous “I’ve Got Blood in My Eyes for You.” Whether their approach is innovative or traditional, all of the artists on this album connect with something relevant within the Sheiks’ still-vital legacy.
