Dr. John Dr. John's Gumbo on Limited Edition Import 180g Vinyl LP
Dr. John is universally celebrated as the living embodiment of the rich musical heritage exclusive to New Orleans. His very colorful musical career began in the 1950s when he wrote and played guitar on some of the greatest records to come out of the Crescent City, including recordings by Professor Longhair, Art Neville, Joe Tex and Frankie Ford. Adorned with voodoo charms and regalia, a legend was born with his breakthrough 1968 album Gris-gris, which established his unique blend of voodoo mysticism, funk, rhythm & blues, psychedelic rock and Creole roots.
Originally issued in 1972, Dr. John's Gumbo is the Night Tripper's fifth full-length, serving as both a return to roots and a fitting tribute to his home of New Orleans. The sweeping 12-song set features excellent interpretations of New Orleans traditionals ("Iko Iko," "Tipitina," "Junko Partner," "Stack-A-Lee") and contemporary R&B written or played by the likes of Huey 'Piano' Smith ("Blow Wind Blow," "Huey Smith Medley"), and Earl King & Earl Gaines ("Big Chief," "Let The Good Times Roll," "Those Lonely Lonely Nights").
