"Dr.Johns remedies is a great example of his earlier recordings.Very late sixties seventies influences can be heard here.The musicians are top notch.The sound quality on this particular re issue is excellent!While there are only six songs on this cd please be aware that tracks 5 and 6 have a running time of more than 27 minutes.Track 6 titled anglo anthem is my personal favorite.At over 17 minutes long it provides for a non stop musical journey.Various tempo changes,lots of percussion sounds and effects,interesting vocal arrangements,and last but not least great bass and drum playing.For guitar players not much going on here.Other favorites are what goes around comes around and Mardi Gras Day at over 8 minutes long.All songs written by dr.john.ENJOY!"

"Dr John's third album retained some of the voodoo hippy gumbo of Gris-Gris and Babylon, particularly on the rather messily overlong Angola Anthem, but added some deep soul and New Orleans rhythm and blues to the pot, to create an infectious gris-gris funk to numbers like Wash, Mama, Wash (the single from the album), Loop Garoo (its B-side) and Chippy, Chippy, with a great (uncredited) horn section"
