5.0 out of 5 stars Spicy New Orleans Gumbo
This is New Orleans music at its finest.From the syncopated rhythyms of the mighty Meters (surely the funkiest outfit since James Brown) to the gravel voiced voodoo of the good Doctor. The horn arrangements of Allen Toussaint also deserve a special mention. Standout tracks for me are 'Right place wrong time'(checkout the bass line of George Porter jnr) and 'Qualified'...

3.0 out of 5 stars Middle of the road
On paper this could have been brillant. A dream team of Dr John backed by the Meters and produced by Alan Toussaint. But thats not how it turned out. The music steers periliously close to easy listening middle of the road music. It might by found in the racks next to Herb Alpert and Henry Mancini with that fake Jazz lite sound. To add to this Dr john's voice is ill suited...

Standout tracks for me are 'Right place wrong time'(checkout the bass line of George Porter jnr) and 'Qualified' which paste an idiot grin to my face every time I hear them. A top 100 album for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as the Doctor gets...for me, 19 Feb 2013

fantastic album, and as good an example of what Dr John does as anything else available. It's both fresh and accesible which can't be said of a lot of his contemparies. Still sounds brilliant today too.

The man, the legend. Great album by the coolest guy in music - one of his most complete I reckon. Go Mac - you're the man!

3.0 out of 5 stars Middle of the road, 3 Nov 2012
This review is from: In the Right Place (Audio CD)
On paper this could have been brillant. A dream team of Dr John backed by the Meters and produced by Alan Toussaint. But thats not how it turned out. The music steers periliously close to easy listening middle of the road music. It might by found in the racks next to Herb Alpert and Henry Mancini with that fake Jazz lite sound. To add to this Dr john's voice is ill suited to the smooth music and sounds very strained at times. Some songs do pull back from the brink but this is not a patch on the other Dr John albums I own which are Gris Gris and The Sun the Moon and the Herbs. This has put me off Dr John a bit.
