The fifth album by Dr.

John, aka The Night Tripper, is also heralded as his richest album to date. Dr John’s Gumbo was released in 1972 and is in many ways a tribute to his hometown New Orleans. It features excellent interpretations of New Orleans traditionals (“Iko Iko”, “Tipitina”, “Junko Partner” and “Stack-O- Lee”) and contemporary R&B written or played by the likes of Huey Piano Smith (“Blow Wind Blow” and “Huey Smith Medley”) Earl King and Earl Gaines (“Big Chief”, “Let The Good Times Roll” and “Lonely Lonely Nights”). Dr. John delivers a strong set of infectious songs drenched in good vibes and spiced with a pinch of voodoo. His eccentric (stage) appearance added unique colour to his stature as master of the ivories and entertainer pur sang.
