Product Description

This best of collection features two bonus tracks 'Careless Love' & 'Dis, Dat or D'Udda. Also included are the Doctor's own sleeve notes commenting on each of the four albums from which the tracks are taken from. Blue Note. 2005.

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

Format: Audio CD
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!
