DR. JOHN CREOLE MOON Limited 180gram Audiophile Vinyl 2LP Set

Overview:
At the end of the previous millennium, Dr. John found himself having recorded not a single album of straight up New Orleans R&B in almost a decade. He soon rectified that with Creole Moon in 2001. This personal interpretation of New Orleans contains 14 slabs of Crescent City soul soaked in the daily life in his beloved city of birth.

The album marked a return to the sound of his classic mid-70s records, right from the spidery electric piano and testifying back-up vocals. Most of his band, the Lower 9-11 Musician Vocaleers, had been playing with him for close to 20 years, and provided a solid accompaniment. Guests include David "Fathead" Newman, slide guitarist Sonny Landreth, fiddler Michael Doucet, and a tight horn section led by Fred Wesley. This first time on vinyl version celebrates the albums 15th anniversary with a 180 grams audiophile 2LP with an etched D side and insert.
