CD Reviews

REALLY GOOD SOUND TIME TO UPGRADE
Syd | Chicago | 02/25/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I just happened to stumble upon this. It is a really good album. Not great musicians playing, but the lack only adds. People in the past complaining about lousy sound, this is as good as it gets. By the by if you like this, you might like Exuma by Exuma."
A Midsummer Night's Dream Under A Hoodoo Moon
Graveyard Poet | St. Louis, MO USA | 04/28/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There's absolutely nothing else out there like this one. Swampy and funky psychedelic voodoo gumbo music with chanting background vocals, mandolin, clarinet, tribal percussion, harpsichord, organ, and an odd and bizarre arrangement of instruments which creates a strange and smoky nocturnal atmosphere like a ritual under a full moon on a hot summer night in the bayou jungle. Dr. John Creaux, the Night Tripper, is the "Grand Zombie", our sort of Halloween guide on this after hours voyage which can be a party of the weirdest kind as well as an equal parts earthy and eerie head trip. Give it a spin. Your record collection will never be the same."
Maybe the BEST psychedelic album ever?
N. Smith | 07/21/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Freaky music, GREAT music and a REAL piece of New Orleans! This is also maybe the best psychedelic collection ever released. True voodoo music taht will keep you up all night, fightin' zombies or dancing, or both!"
