Dr . John : Goin' back in New Orleans 1992

Combining New Orleans funk, glitter, and voodoo charm, pianist Dr. John was an energetic frontman in the early '70s ("Right Place, Wrong Time") and a behind-the-scenes mover before and since.
Dr. John slowly acquired a loyal cult following, including Eric Clapton and Mick Jagger, who played on The Sun, Moon & Herbs. He moved to the more accessible regions of funk (backed by the Meters) on In the Right Place (#24, 1973). Produced by Allen Toussaint (who also played in Dr. John’s band on a 1973 tour and who produced Desitively Bonnaroo) “Right Place, Wrong Time” (#9) was his biggest hit, followed a few months later by “Such a Night” (#42). In 1973 Dr. John also worked in Triumvirate, a short-lived trio with Mike Bloomfield and John Hammond Jr. (John Paul Hammond). He appeared in the Band’s 1978 farewell concert film, The Last Waltz. In 1981 he released the first of several solo piano LPs, Dr. John Plays Mac Rebennack.
