Synopsis

Amazon.com
Pulling his Night Tripper war paint and feathers out of cold storage, Mac Rebennack attempts to revisit the Right Place Wrong Time era. Whereas the mighty Meters and Allen Toussaint were once a key ingredient in his cajun stew, here a crew of overly competent GRP sessioneers add more starch than spice. Chili Pepper Anthony Kiedis raps amusingly on Shut D Fonk Up, and the cover of, "Thank You (Falletin Me Be Mice Elf Again)" is a highlight. --Jeff Bateman

CD Reviews

This is one of Dr. John's Worst recordings
William Jones | Rockville, MD USA | 10/13/2000
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Released on the heels of his tell-all autobiography and heroin-habit kicking, this should be better than it is. First of all, the only person rapping on a Dr. John album is Dr. John. Second, the funk is flat. Even Thank You Falletinme Be Mice Elf Again, great as a Sly and the Family Stone Tune, is not particularly funky. Dr. John has a habit of recording one or two great ones followed by a not-so great one. This is a real low point."
This is one of Dr.John's best Albums!

"This is one of those Cds that you can lisen to from Start to finish, and not stop till you do! Most of the songs on this CD Bare a close resembulance to his other work at the time, but is somwhat better than Night Tripper at certain points."
