Dion has been on a late career roll in the 21st century, with Deja New, Bronx in Blue, Son of Skip James, Born to Be with You, and now, New York Is My Home. This date finds the original rock & roll street poet delivering a ten-song set that moves effortlessly between raucous blues and roots rock, with just the right amount of electric singer/songwriter fare mixed in. The moving, resonant title track single with duet partner Paul Simon is a scorching redo of "Ride with You" and a hopped-up version of Lightnin' Hopkins' "Katie Mae," are two highlights.
