Jimbo Mathus, producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, has reopened his Delta Recording Service ( in Como, Miss. The studio, previously located in Clarksdale, Miss., produced more than 70 projects in just over a year, including Grammy and Handy Award winners and nominees Elvis Costello, Big George Brock and Duwayne Burnside.

“It's a one-stop studio for clients,” Mathus said. “When clients walk through the door and need it, we've got it.” The 30×12 main recording room offers an 8-foot iso booth, configured much like the old Sun Studios in Memphis. Other gear of note includes circa-1940s ribbon mics, Event Electronics speakers, a Mackie board, and vintage amps, guitars and other instruments.

Delta Recording Service also offers a full spectrum of services for D.I.Y. artists, including CD art, manufacturing and national distribution via 219 Records.
