Dr. John's Gumbo was released in 1972 and is in many ways a tribute by Dr. John to his hometown New Orleans. It features excellent interpretations of New Orleans traditionals and contemporary R&B written or played by the likes of Huey 'Piano' Smith, Earl King and Earl Gaines. Dr. John delivers a strong set of infectious songs drenched in good vibes and spiced with a pinch of voodoo.

Dr. John is universally celebrated as the living embodiment of the rich musical heritage exclusive to New Orleans. His very colorful musical career began in the 1950s when he wrote and played guitar on some of the greatest records to come out of the Crescent City, including recordings by Professor Longhair, Art Neville, Joe Tex and Frankie Ford. Adorned with voodoo charms and regalia, a legend was born with his breakthrough 1968 album Gris-gris, which established his unique blend of voodoo mysticism, funk, rhythm & blues, psychedelic rock and Creole roots.


Originally issued in 1972, Dr. John's Gumbo is the Night Tripper's fifth full-length, serving as both a return to roots and a fitting tribute to his hometown of New Orleans. The sweeping 12-song set features excellent interpretations of New Orleans traditionals ("Iko Iko," "Tipitina," "Junko Partner," "Stack-A-Lee") and contemporary R&B written or played by the likes of Huey 'Piano' Smith ("Blow Wind Blow," "Huey Smith Medley"), and Earl King & Earl Gaines ("Big Chief," "Let The Good Times Roll," "Those Lonely Lonely Nights").


This '70s classic album now receives the full Analogue Productions reissue treatment with a brand new audiophile 200-gram pressing courtesy of Quality Record Pressings, remastering from the original analogue tapes courtesy of Kevin Gray, and tip-on gatefold jacket packaging from Stoughton Printing.


Dr. John's Gumbo bridged the gap between post-hippie rock and early rock & roll, blues, and R&B, offering a selection of classic New Orleans R&B, including "Tipitina" and "Junko Partner," updated with a gritty, funky beat. There aren't as many psychedelic flourishes as there were on his first two albums, but the ones that are present enhance his sweeping vision of American roots music. And that sly fusion of styles makes Dr. John's Gumbo one of Dr. John's finest albums.
