5.0 out of 5 stars No Funkin' Around February 24, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Funk, in its purest form, is hard to come by these days. That's because we don't have the kind of wreckless visionaries that the 70s had, like Dr. John and George Clinton. These guys were so far gone into their music that they bordered on being parodies of themselves, and somehow that translated into the kind of raw and unprecedented energy that makes their music so saturated in what one would ideally define as 'funky'. Take Dr. John: the dude is basically the white George Clinton, with his crazy head dresses and honky tonk muppet voice. Put him in front of a piano, get the Meters to lay down the tightest funk grooves you've ever heard, and add producer Alain Toussaint's canjun roots and you've got an exceptionally enjoyable album in "In The Right Place". The music is uplifting and listenable; The Meters take the house down with some thick bass riffs, brilliantly arranged horns and tight-as-hell percussions. Dr. John wails like a drunken canjun cartoon character, which is such an endearing and appropriate compliment to this musical experience that you will not know how to listen to this kind of funk without a voice as original and funky as this.

While the entire album provides a consistent line-up of quality jams, the two stand-outs that have become two of Dr. John's greatest hits are "Right Place, Wrong Time" and "Such A Night". "Right Place, Wrong Time" would fill any dance floor with its danceability factor, while "Such A Night" is a kind of honky tonk interpretation of a faster-paced soul ballad, with great backing vocals and a nostalgic, Bugsy Malone-sounding keys section.

This album is a must-have for any self-respecting fan of the funk. Dr. John is a true pioneer in the genre and, while most of his work is worth owning, this is nonetheless one of his best albums to prove it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dr. John the Nighttripper in all his glory March 21, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is a straight reissue of the 1973 album release. A scant 34 minutes and no bonus tracks. Not even any liner notes -- which might just be the way the disc was originally issued.
Backed by the Meters (Leo Nocentelli, Arthur Neville, George Porter and Joseph Modeliste), augmented by the multi-instrumentalism and production of Allen Toussaint, Dr. John stretches out in more funky and soulful directions than the previous year's reading of New Orleans classics, "Gumbo." Dr. John wrote or co-wrote 8 of the 11 tracks here, with three more Crescent City treats (James Waynes' "Traveling Mood", Allen Toussaint's "Life" and Alvin Robinson's "Cold Cold Cold").
The disc leads off with Dr. John' only top-40 hit, "Right Place Wrong Time" (#9 in June of '73). This is one of those great productions that at the time just slipped right into the stream of things, but looking back at it now it's a wonder to think it actually made it into the popular conscious. It's a similar feeling to realizing that Johnny Nash's "Hold Me Tight" or Desmond Dekker's "Israelites" brought ska and reggae sounds to the American top-40 without ever really saying so. There's a soulfulness to this, an r'n'b sound in the horns, organ and background vocals, that just defies the sort of prefabricated pieces that usually make the charts.
The rest of the disc continues in the soulful vein, feeling much like the Neville Brothers work at points. It moves from the upbeat and funky (the title track, "Qualified") through gospel-tinged pieces ("Peace Brother Peace") to quiet, more soulful ballads ("Just the Same") There's some interesting interplay between Dr. John's piano and Art Neville's organ. Nice horn playing throughout from the Bonaroo horn section.
Overall a great piece of funky early 70's New Orleans soul, all filtered through Dr. John's nighttripper persona.

4.0 out of 5 stars I been hoodoo'd February 10, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Not as swampy as the good Doctor's classics "Gris Gris" and "Sun, Moon and Herbs", but still seriously FONKY with the title track, and steamy "I been Hoodoo'd". "Such a Night" was a taster for his role as preserver and interpreter of New Orleans' musical heritage. A rich spicy gumbo- savour it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool, funky, hip................... December 2, 1999
Format:Audio CD
This really is an excellent album. If you like a sophisicated, funky sound, then this is for you. I liken it to a New Orleans funk sound with soul. The stand-out track has got to be 'Right Place Wrong Time'.'Qualified', 'Peace Brother Peace', 'Such A Night' all hot on the heels. Check out the drumming too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dr. John through and through May 13, 2014
By Re21141
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
The album is a very good representation of Dr. John's skill as a musician and a songwriter. I expect those new to Dr. John would especially enjoy this album. Those that have enjoyed Dr. John for years will find it amongst the albums they want to have in their collection.

This is my first Dr. John album which I burned onto my Ipod. Enjoy it every time it comes on. Next purchase will be of his set on the New Orleans benefit album.
