Description
The gestalt of Dr. J the Nite Tripper's eerie but joyful debut (Gris-Gris, 1968) is revisited on his latest album, and it's given an overlay of "contemporary twists and turns, chunky bluesy guitars, staccato brass and angel choirs so that Dr. John's shady tales and angry protest never sound dated" (Irish Times).

"This is not another disc of Dr John tinkling the ivories and crooning standards and witty ditties in that inimitable growl; it serves up slabs of sixties funk served with a brimming side dish of voodoo and psychedelic guitar, and laces faith-referencing tunes like 'Kingdom of Izzness' and 'God's Sure Good' with soaring gospel backing vocals."—Boston Herald

"Auerbach has surrounded the pianist with spooky-sultry female backing singers, brooding horns, and occasional patina of jungle noises, and his own astringent blues guitar. With Dr. John's epigrammatic boho-hipster lyrics sketching contemporary social travails—'Economy, conning me out of my sanity'; 'Religious delusions, stone confusion' etc—over a psych-funk gumbo of staccato organ and electric piano, the result is a dark, steamy sound that comes crawling from the Louisiana swamp like a mean-tempered 'gator."—The Independent
