Today’s music to keep me SANE in Isolation – Dr John

Straight out of New Orleans – Mac Rebennack – a performer of great skill and charisma – creating a fusion of New Orleans Boogie, Pop, Zydeco and Creole with psychedelia, Rock and R&B.

He first came to my attention back in the 60s with his fabulous album Gris Gris – Dr John The Night Tripper.

I hadn’t heard anything quite like it.

I only got to see him once – that was in a club in Hull with just him and his piano – He came on in all his shamanic costume – all cloaks, bags, scarves, beads and headdress with a crooked adorned stick. Magic.

My friend did a half hour interview with him. A great evening.

So today I’ll be playing Dr John at full volume!! That’ll drive the gloomy spirits away!!

I'd like to hear from you...
