Dr John – Gumbo

Published on 10 March 2020 by

      Stephen Thomas Erlewine: Dr John – 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.

      Amazon.com: After earning a name for himself as a high priest of psychedelic voodoo, the man baptized Mac Rebennack returned to his New Orleans roots with this 1972 concoction: Dr John – Gumbo. Gathering tunes and players he’d encountered in his many years as a Crescent City session pro, Dr. John assembled a loving tribute to the city and the sounds he loved. Tunes such as “Iko Iko,” Big Chief,” and “Junko Partner” have become roots-music standards over the last quarter century in significant part due to this venerable valentine to the long-lost likes of Sugar Boy & the Cane Cutters, the Spiders, Paul Gayten, and Huey Smith. –Steve Stolder
