Format: Audio CD
After the slightly disappointing "Mercenary" album this is a wellcome return to form for the good Doctor.This album sees him offering a spicey gumbo of pop,jazz,soul,funk,blues and a hint of voodoo.If you liked the "Creole moon" album then you'll love this one.Like most of his albums these days there is a sprinkling of guest stars like Eric Clapton,Willie Nelson and jazz trumpeter Terence Blanchard to add to the mix.The album title gives you a clue as to the basis of the songs for this album with most of them penned by Mac himself.The pick of the album is in fact the title track "The city that..." which is a slow voodoish blues with Dr john digging deep for some real feeling and "Dream warrior" is a voodoish funk with a nice tight rhythm.Songs like "Landgrab" and "My people need.." are about New Orleans with the "My people.." giving you a taste of 2nd line New Orleans jazz to add to the already varied mix.Trumpeter Blanchard guests on "We gettin there" (another New Orleans piece) and plays a wavering solo over the choruses and also appears on "Land Grab" playing a nice solo over a piece of what i would describe as space age funk !The high points are too numerous to mention in what is one of the Doc's best albums in recent years.Really though,this is an album about New Orleans, a city that Mr Rebennack loves so much and it shows in the thoughtfully penned tunes of his.So show him you care and support him by buying this great album.If your'e not already a fan then get yourself aquainted now.Play twice a day until you start to feel better just as the Doctor ordered.

Nice stuff, beautifully played, but to be perfectly honest not the strongest set from the good doctor. Little disappointed to recognise quite a lote of the frills and riffs from previous albums. I buy everything Mac puts out, and if you also a fan you'll like this - pretty much in the vein of Creole Moon. The last album that totally blew me away was Duke Elegant and that's going back a few years.

I prefer the solo piano stuff. Saw him live at the O2 and the music sounded better there than the recording.

Putting his voice where his heart is 23 July 2008
By R. Kyle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Dr. John is to New Orleans is what Willie Nelson is to Austin, TX and heartland causes. Anytime someone's in need these two guys are putting themselves out there singing their hearts out for the causes they believe in. Of course, Willie's on this CD, so's Slowhand, Ani DiFranco, and Terence Simien.

"City that Care Forgot" isn't just a statement, though. You can tell when you're listening to this that the folks performing had a good time putting heart and soul into these songs.

I usually have a favorite song or two. Hands down, for me, it's "You Might Be Surprised." The lyrics really spoke to me:

"Life is a near death experience
Hell is right here on this great big Earth
It could be a little taste of heaven
If we only knew our worth
All we got to do is want it bad enough
To push ourself through
We always underestimate ourselves
We do every day we can always do better
In each and every way
If we don't believe in ourselves
Nobody's gonna do it
If we don't push ourselves
We'll never make it through it..."

If you can listen to "Dream Warrior" without tears in your eyes, you've got a 'heart of iron' as Homer says. Dr. John tells it like it is regarding the 'second battle for New Orleans.' It's the harshest hurricane protest song I've heard, be prepared.

"Black Gold" is a double entendre about oil and military recruitment and it's another political statement that people of conscience should be listening to.

"Promises, Promises" features Willie Nelson singing with the good Doctor. I am surprised at how good these two very distinctive voices sound together.

"Stripped Away" features Clapton backing. This song's more rocked out than most, gorgeous sound for a painful message.

"The City That Care Forgot" is one of the best collaborative efforts I have heard in a long time. The message is strong, the playing is gorgeous. It also supports a worthy cause.

Absolutely stunning! 27 Jun. 2008
By David J. Ohanlon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Gosh, what a tour de force! From the opening "bop" of "Keep on Going" right through all 13 tracks the good Doctor is on form, on song, on rhythm & on message here. There's cool jazz, funk, swamp blues & great contributions from the guest artists, in particular Eric Clapton & Terence Blanchard.
You know, a lot of "protest" albums suffer from the angst getting in the way of the artistry but not here. For example I was REALLY worried about the combo with Willie Nelson on "Promises, Promises" but by gum it works & makes the words truly resonate - "Promises, promises, empty words, empty words; the road to the White House, paved with lies.....fought in your wars, paid with our lives.....the truth will set you free". Yet the really great thing is how the tracks without the guests see the Doctor really getting down & nasty with great, driving, funky beats - just listen to "Dream Warrior" for proof positive.
Other highlights of an album of consistently high quality are "Land Grab" (great trumpet from Blanchard) & the title track (some of Clapton's "bluesiest" guitar in ages). Very rarely do I download every single track from an album into my iPod/iTunes but I did with this album. HIGHLY recommended

HIS BEST EVER 20 Jun. 2008
By David P. Weber - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Not only will this please long-time fans of the Doctor, it's also a good place to start for those who don't know his work. This is an album of integrity, drive, commitment and purpose. It sounds great on the first listen and only gets better.

The band is hot and tight-- you get a sense that a lot of the performances emerged from jams. Some may feel Dr. John's recent albums have steered too close to MOR territory. But the swamp funk of 'Gumbo' has finally returned, in a deeper and darker form. And the Doctor even revives some of the ol' voodoo magic on a couple of tracks.

Don't be scared off by the fear that the guest stars will dominate the album (always a danger). In truth, the guests emblazoned across the cover play s co-operative, understated role. Clapton guitar speaks with austere reverence, and Willie Nelson's contribution is barely audible.

Like a lot of peers who first achieved international fame forty years ago, the good Doctor has hit a purple patch. Not only is this his greatest album, it's also one of the best albums of the decade. The Doctor is IN!

WOW!! 3 Jun. 2008
By Anna - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
City That Care Forgot is easily a career high for DR JOHN. Expressing his concerns over the Government's inempt reaction to Hurricane Katrina, DR JOHN brings us home to the NEW ORLEANS VOODOO BLUES scene. With friends, Eric Clapton, Willie Nelson, and Ani DiFranco, this CD is a memorable must have!!

This is musical expression at it's best. 4 Jun. 2008
By SA Zydeco - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was so thrilled upon listening this record. The good Dr., with his amazing line up of guests, has made a great record, with a great statement. City that Care Forgot is a hauntingly beautiful song and I can't get it out of my head. And that's a good thing.
