Product Description

Since signing to Parlophone 1997, Dr John has released four great albums - all very different, but all in the distinctive and inimitable style of the music industry's favourite physician. From Anutha Zone in 1998 with a host of guest collaborations, through the Duke Ellington Centenary celebration Duke Elegant in 1999, to his personal interpretation of New Orleans in 2001 with Creole Moon, and last year's star-studded N'Awlinz - Dis, Dat Or D'Udda, Dr John has produced a wealth of latter-day musicality for the label.

As well as Dr John's unmistakeable vocals and keyboard along with his regular band, featured artists include BB King, Paul Weller, Jools Holland, Randy Newman, Mavis Staples and Gaz Coombes/Mick Quinn (Supergrass), J.Spaceman a/k/a Jason Pierce (Spiritualized) amongst others.

As a bonus to his loyal fans, the album also features two bonus tracks - the previously unissued 'Careless Love' from the 2004 N'Awlinz-'Dis, Dat Or D'Udda sessions' and 'Look Out'- only previously available as a bonus track on the Japanese version of 'Anutha Zone'.

Amazon.com

This set draws from the four albums Dr. John recorded for the British Parlophone label from 1997 to 2004 (released in the United States on Blue Note and Virgin). In the several decades since his popular emergence as the Night Tripper he's become one of the respected elders of New Orleans music. These seventeen songs show him to be drawing from deep Crescent City traditions, as well as R&B, jazz, swing, balladry. The set also showcases his work with a range of notable guests (from Paul Weller to randy Newman to Mavis Staples). These collaborators never overshadow the good Doctor, rather, they show how broad their shared influences are, as well as what a formidable shadow he casts across the music that's followed him. --David Greenberger

On this album different songs from the good doctor's other albums come together. This is a great album for people interested in hearing what Dr. John is all about. Hen Layin Rooster is a personal favorite because it brings two old school cats together (Dr. John & B.B. King). If you want to take an adventure with the voodoo king from New Orleans...buy this album. You won't regret it.

For the real fans this CD is a compliation of things we already own. And on Henlaying Rooster it's B.B. King who plays with the Mujikal Gris Gris Doctor from New Orleans and not Clarence 'Gatemouth' Brown. If you're new to The Doctor this is a nice way to hear some of his relatively recent work.

This is a great cd with great sound quality. I was always interested & drawn to the sound of the samples, but was persuaded by some negative reviews. My only regret is not trusting my own senses & ordering it years ago!
