Product Description

A wonderful slice of New Orleans funk history that would certainly qualify as rare grooves. This 1973 recording of Dr John's glorious live set is one of the only documents of the actual everyday working band of this period and this FM Broadcast catches them on a really, really good day. Mac's own description of this band admits they were a hard partying bunch. But what a band it is! The roster of this ultimately funky ensemble (named The Rampart Street Sympathy Orchestra by the mighty Professor Longhair) is; Dr John: Piano and Guitar; John Boudreaux: Drums; Robert Lee Popwell: Bas; Sugar Bear Welch: Guitar; Darrell Leonard: Cornet and Trumpet; Jerry Jummonville: Tenor Sax; Bobbie Montgomery & Jessie Smith: Vocals. The venue was a weekly live radio spot for WLIR in Hempstead, NY (Long Island) that took place (ironically) at Ultrasonic Studios. This was more than three years before the famous New Orleans Ultrasonic Studio was even built. The show is deep voodoo funky and wonderfully tight. This here is simply the best damn Dr John album you never heard (previously!). Dr John the Night Tripper and the Rampart Street Sympathy Orchestra live in Hempstead, NY 1973 what a bloody delight!

This is one of those lost recordings that really stands up to being issued on cd. The music is out of this world with a band on top form and a choice of well and lesser known numbers. This is an opportunity to hear a fantastic group of musicians playing out of their skins. I have only heard one live recorded track from this era on a local NOLA radio station before so I didn't hesitate when I saw this advertised. Dr John is at his voodoo funk best and to hear walk on gilded splinters done live with such joyous energy is a trip.

Great to have this opportunity to hear Dr John at the height of his career. Fantastic live performances of all of his greats at a time when they were still his current pieces rather than historical treats.

I've come to appreciate Mac only recently and don't have the depth of knowledge that lots of you out there have of the good doctor - my favourite album of his is Dr John plays Mac Rebennac which is a lovely, slightly introspective solo piano album - beautiful. This CD reflects his voodoo schtick and really swings and is a total hoot - great fun and tightly disciplined, infectious music - fantastic tight ensemble playing. I don't give a stuff about the silly creole nonsense - that went out with Jelly Roll Morton for gawd's sake - but if you can rise above it the music is great. Recommended.

i doubt wether the tracks were lost just filed away and then released when Dr. J fans were desperate for something new and were thinking of of scouring the honkytonky dives of New Orleans for the "Man",anyway what i want to say cd saved me a lot of cash
