-the best of the parlophone years- My Wife and I drove down to San Diego last Tuesday, she is always picking up music that she loads into the multi-disc changer lots of times I dont even know what she has bought. This trip one of the discs was a promo of Dr. John -the best of the parlophone years- to be honest it was so catchy I must have played it 4 times, and the version of -it dont mean a thing- had me at first listen. I found the whole album to be great listening - crisp and tight!. Mark

I was lucky enough to see Dr John at the New Orleans Jazz Fest I had always been a big fan, he was fantastic!

Mac (Malcolm) Rebennack is an American National Treasure. My favorite CD of his is Zu Zu Man. Anyone else have this CD? Ain't nobody better than Dr John!

Money is bad

I think he was into Brain Salad Surgery even before Emerson, Lake, & Palmer. Probably coined the phrase. ;)

Be on the lookout for this classic from the good Dr.: Gumbo

Includes tunes like Iko Iko, Big Chief, Mess Around

And if you like him and native New Orleans music, check out: The Wild Tchoupitoulas self-titled LP or CD (Mango label)
