Rita AbatziI'm Burning, I'm Burning – Beautiful & Haunting Greek Urban Songs 1933 to 1937 ... LP
Mississippi, Mid 30s. New Copy ... $8.99
Forget that you can't understand the language, forget that you may not have heard the style before – this music is amazing, and completely captivating right from the start! Rita Abatzi has this incredibly moving voice that goes way beyond the barriers of language or culture – quite powerful, but never in an overdone way – just filled with feelings inflected by these deft twists and turns that match the light folksy stringed instrumentation of the tunes – played with tones that are every bit as blue and melancholy as Rita's vocals. The approach is very unique, and goes way beyond any other Greek music of this nature we've heard – and translated titles include "Two Hearts Pained", "In The River My Clothes", "The Doe", "I Can't Cry Anymore", "Mother Please Don't Send Me To America", and "Girl From Lalio". LP, Vinyl record album
(Comes with a bonus booklet of notes!)

Rita LeeBuild Up/Hoje E O Primeiro Dia Do RestoDa Sua Vida/Atras De Porto Tem Uma Cidade (3CD set) ... CD
Philips/Universal (Brazil), 1970/1972/1974. Used 3CD ... $32.99
The first three solo albums from Os Mutantes singer Rita Lee – all work that really follows in a great vibe from her key contributions to the Tropicalia scene! Build Up has Rita stepping out as a sophisticated pop singer, almost in the way that Nico did on the Chelsea Girl album, after leaving the Velvet Underground. Arrangements have a weird twisted edge – as Rita makes her way through a set of originals and a few covers, in an almost deadpan, ice-blond mode that reminds us of some of Jane Birkin's early work. Arrangements are by the great Rogerio Duprat, and titles include "Sucesso, Aqui Vou Eu", "Prisioneira Do Amor", "Hulla Hulla", "Tempo Nublado", "Precisamos De Irmaos", and "Calma" – plus a nice cover of "And I Love Him". On Hoje E Primeiro, Lee is clearly the star of the show – singing all lyrics with a much fiercer vocal approach than on her earlier solo album – pushing things hard to keep up with the jamming keyboards of Arnaldo Baptista and guitar of Sergio Dias – both of whom are working with the energy that would show up in the Mutantes styles in the years after Lee departed. One of the most compelling aspects of the record is the structure of the tunes – less conventionally rockish overall than the direction Os Mutantes were moving towards – and still with that strong dramatic flair that Lee always provided when in the group. Titles include "Vamos Tratar Da Saude", "Amor Branco E Preto", "Superficie Do Planeta", "Teimoisia", "Tapupukitipa", "Beija Me Amor", and "Frique Como". On Atras Do Porto, Lee hits a sort of space rock sound, with a weird set of materials that sort of mixes an early 70's space rock guitar sound with Wings-like production for a more pop feel. Our Portuguese is terrible, so we can't read the lyrics and get hip to the concept, but the inside cover has the band looking kind of like refugees from Spinal Tap or something. With the cuts "Tem Uma Cidade", "Menino Bonito", "Mame Natureza", and "Eclipse Do Cometa". CD

Rita Lee & Tutti FruttiFruto Proibido ... LP
Som Livre (Brazil), 1975. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $34.99
One of the first records that has Rita emerging to become one of the big female rock singers of Brazil – done in a style that's pretty straight, with some elements of older rock, and a tightly produced LA-style sound. The songs have some pretty good hooks, and Rita's overall style is a bit like Linda Rondstat at the same time – although a bit hipper. Titles include "O Toque", "Ovelha Negra", "Pirataria", "Dancar Pra-nao Dancar", and "Carto Postal". LP, Vinyl record album

Rita ReysRita Reys Sings Burt Bacharach ... CD
Columbia/Sony (Japan), 1971. New Copy ... $9.99
A wonderful recording of Burt Bacharach classics – done by Dutch singer Rita Reys, in a setting that makes the album one of her best from the 70s! Rita's got this airy, open style of vocalizing – a bit like Morgana King, but not as heavily handed – and that style really turns out to be perfect for Burt's music – as Reys kind of flows, steps, and drifts over the tunes with effortless ease – at a level that's maybe even better that Dionne Warwick's famous interpretations of the material. Arrangements by Rogier Van Otterloo also match the mode just right – full orchestrations, but always very light – kind of pillowy, right underneath Rita's voice – gently gliding through tunes that include "Windows Of The World", "This Girl's In Love With You", "Make It Easy On Yourself", "A House Is Not A Home", "One Less Bell To Answer", and "Paper Mache".

Rita ReysRita Reys Sings Michel Legrand ... CD
CBS (Japan), 1972. New Copy ... $13.99
Dutch singer Rita Reys takes on the work of French soundtrack maestro Michel Legrand – and the result is one of her greatest albums of the 70s! Rita's take on Legrand's work is a bit different than some of her contemporaries – a bit more fluid, and somewhat emotive – almost more so than the original Legrand recordings used for film soundtracks. But it's also that approach which makes these tunes stand out nicely – a presentation that adds a new level of feeling to the music, and which is augmented by some great guest work by Louis Van Dyke on piano and Toots Thielemans on harmonica! Arrangements are by Rogier Van Otterloo, and include a few tracks with added voices behind Rita's lead. Rita sings in English throughout – and titles include "Ask Yourself Why", "What Are You Doing The Rest Of Your Life", "Where Is The Love", "The Hands Of Time", "Pieces Of Dreams", "The Years Of My Youth", and "The Summer Knows".

Rita Reys with Johnny GriffinThat Old Feeling ... CD
Columbia (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... $9.99
A really special session from Dutch jazz singer Rita Reys – one that not only features familiar accompaniment from the trio of pianist Pim Jacobs, but which also includes some key tenor work from the great Johnny Griffin! By this point in her career, Rita had recorded quite often with Jacobs – and the duo had a relaxed, comfortable approach with each other – so the inclusion of Griffin really makes the record stand out from the pack, and has a deeper sense of soulfulness when Johnny steps in and brings his magical tenor into play! The Griffin solos are surprisingly strong, given the setting – well-crafted with the sort of subtle genius he was really displaying at this point in his career. Titles include "My Foolish Heart", "Mr Wonderful", "Poor Butterfly", "The Touch Of Your Lips", "Fly Me To The Moon", and "Isn't It Romantic". CD

Rev-Ola (UK), 1972. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A tripped-out batch of hard jamming tracks from ex-Mutante Rita Lee – recorded with assistance from all the members of the group at the time, but in a mode that's quite different overall! Lee is clearly the star of the show here – singing all lyrics with a much fiercer vocal approach than on her earlier solo album – pushing things hard to keep up with the jamming keyboards of Arnaldo Baptista and guitar of Sergio Dias – both of whom are working with the energy that would show up in the Mutantes styles in the years after Lee departed.

Chico BuarqueChico Buarque Ao Vivo Paris – Le Zenith ... CD
BMG, 1990. Used ... $8.99
Live work by Chico Buarque – a surprisingly nice set overall, and a great demonstration of the way the energy of his live albums almost took over force from his studio sets at this point in his career! The double-length performance features some great musical direction from Cristovao Bastos – and mixes together some of Chico's more upbeat modes with other tunes that have a moodier feel, quite spare, dark, and somber – touching on a side of Chico that's not always heard in studio work from the time! Titles include "Vai Passar", "O Que Sera", "Joao E Maria", "Rio 42", "Todo O Sentimento", "Partido Alto", "Desalento", and "A Rita". Amazing package, too – comes in a hardcover book-style jacket, with a bonus 42 page book that also includes full color images, with lots of vintage photos, plus notes on the record in Portuguese! The whole thing's sort of an update of the old Abril Cultural style of the 70s – brought into the CD generation. CD

Gilberto GilEletroacustico (Brazilian pressing) ... CD
Warner (Brazil), 2004. Used ... $4.99
A triumphant live set from Gilberto Gil – one that has him working before a large and appreciative crowd in Rio, but in a style that still comes across with a great degree of intimacy! Gil's at the front of the mix on guitar and vocals – dominating all of the tunes with a strength that recalls some of his classic recordings, and which shows that, like Caetano Veloso, age has only enriched his sound and deepened his talents in live performance. And nicely enough, the set's mostly without any of the stylistic gimmicks that have marred some of Gil's more recent albums – almost back-to-basics, with a nice stripped-down sound on many of the tunes. Titles include a mix of classics and new numbers – including "Refavela", "Andar Com Fe", "Cambalache", "A Linha E O Linho", "A Rita", "Imagine", "La Lune De Goree", and "Three Little Birds". CD

A strange little record from Gilberto Gil – an album of reggae tracks, mostly by Bob Marley, recorded in Kingston at the Tuff Gong Studios, with help from the Rita Marley, Marcia Griffiths, Judy Mowatt, Sly & Robbie, and others. The record's actually pretty nice – a good blend of the dub-heavy sounds of Jamaica, with some of the rougher soul stylings that Gil was crafting in earlier years – a combination that shouldn't work, but which does nicely. Titles include "Positive Vibration", "One Drop", "Waiting In Vain", "Could You Be Loved", "Rebel Music", "Easy Skankin", "Turn Your Lights Down Low", and "Lick Samba". CD

Elvin Jones & Richard DavisHeavy Sounds ... CD
Impulse (Japan), 1967. New Copy ... $13.99
Heavy Sounds, indeed – a beautiful little set of dark-edged soul jazz from the mid 60s – co-led by bassist Richard Davis and drummer Elvin Jones! The sound here is a bit different than any work ever released by either player as a leader – and is almost more in the vein of Blue Note or Prestige work of the same period – hardbop turned towards more soulful notes, but also still touched with a degree of modernism. A key element in the group is Frank Foster on tenor – whose blowing here is superb, and really on a par with his own albums as a leader from the time – marking a strong sound away from too many years of Basie influences! Frank does a killer job on his own "Rauncy Rita", taken here in a nice sexy groove, and stretched out nice and long with a very sinister feel – and other tracks include "ME", "Summertime", and "Elvin's Guitar Blues", which actually features Jones on guitar!

Miss Abrams & The Strawberry Point 4th GradeMiss Abrams & The Strawberry Point 4th Grade Class ... LP
Reprise, 1970. Very Good ... $24.99
A pretty great record from one of the coolest school teachers you could ever hope to have – the lovely Miss Rita Abrams, a hippie who was teaching in Marin County at the start of the 70s! The set's a project done by Abrams with her fourth grade class – a set that mostly features original tunes penned by Rita, filled with joy, hope, and the sort of optimism that characterized the Marin County scene of the post-Haight years – and performed with a cool blend of acoustic instrumentation next to Abrams keyboards – with some larger arrangements from Ed Bogas, who'd later work on hip soundtracks for Fantasy Records, across the Bay. There's nothing hokey about the set at all – as the tunes are great, and the kid-quality of the vocals is really kept to a minimum – more used to underscore the warmth in Rita's lead, and surprisingly never cloying at all – a lot like some of the best singer/songwriter projects on Reprise at the time, especially given Rita's cool electric keyboards. Titles include the cool single "Mill Valley" – plus "Floating Away", "Wonder", "Building A Heaven On Earth", "Running In The Green Grass", "Sweet Summertime", and "I Never Asked".

Os MutantesE Seus Cometas No Pais Do Baurets (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Polydor, 1972. New Copy (reissue)... $12.99
One of the hardest rocking albums ever cut by Os Mutantes – a record that's got a slightly ironic take on rock and roll styles of the time – still performed with the sense of drama and humor that always made the band so great! Rita Lee and Arnaldo Baptista are still in the group at this point, and they're working amidst a heavy wave of guitars that echo out with a bit of keyboards and some rhythms that are chunky enough to almost be called funky at times, but sweet and dreamy at others – all produced with a flanged-out finish that makes the whole thing sound great! Titles include "Balada Do Louco", "Todo Mundo Pastou II", "Cantor De Mambo", "Dune Buggy", "Rua Augusta", and "Posso Perder Minha Mulher, Minha Mae, Desde Que Eu Tenha, O Rock and Roll".

People's ChoicePeople's Choice – The Casablanca Sessions (album plus bonus unissued tracks) ... CD
Casablanca/Shout (UK), 1980. New Copy ... $8.99
The classic People's Choice album for Casablanca – plus bonus single mixes and unissued tracks! The original album is an extra clubby effort from the group – one that has them moving over to Casablanca after their albums for Philly International, but still staying strongly in their groove, thanks to production from Tom Moulton at Sigma Sound Studios! Tracks are upbeat, but funky – mixing the lead vocals and keyboards of Frank Brunson with some even more soulful female backing voices, and an overall groove that's in the tight Sigma mode that was starting to show up strongly at Salsoul. Tracks are long, but less disco than funky club – and the mix of male and female vocals together often creates a slightly righteous feel that you don't always get on this sort of record. Titles include "Warm Nights Soft Lights", "Bad Dancin Rita", "My Feet Won't Move But My Shoes Did The Boogie", "Special Things For You", "If I Knew Then What I Know Now", "You Out To Be Dancin", and "Sweeter Than Honey". This CD edtion from Shout UK opens with the 45 Mix versions of "You Ought To Be Dancin'" and "My Feet Won't Move But My Shoes Did The Boogie", and it closes with the unissued "Always In My Heart" and "Bad Bad Rita", plus "Hey Everybody!

The tracks are long, and two numbers have a really nice Latiny flair – with Art spinning out some aggressive solos on top of fast-running grooves, in a way you'd be surprised to hear on one of his albums from the time! Titles include "Rita San", "My Laurie", "Ballad of The Sad Young Men", and "Mambo De La Pinta". LP, Vinyl record album

Cal TjaderAgua Dulce ... CD
Fantasy/BGP (UK), 1971. New Copy ... $11.99
One of our favorite Cal Tjader albums ever – and one of the first to have his vibes working alongside Fender Rhodes! The record's a surprising little set from the start of the 70s – one that almost has Cal picking up some of the New York sounds of a few years before, then mixing them up with a hipper west coast electric style in the end – a Fantasy Records vibe that meshes together a few different modes, and comes up with a rich new style in the process! There's a bit of vocals on the set – somewhat unusual for Cal Tjader, and often used to augment the soulfully snapping grooves of the best tunes – but even more amazing is the heavy use of Fender Rhodes, played here by the amazing Al Zulaica, who's work on the album really ranks right up there with the best early 70s keyboardists on the coast! Zulaica's piano is amazing next to Cal's warmly chromatic vibes – and other instrumentation includes saxes from Bill Perkins, flute from Mel Martin, trumpet from Luis Gasca, moog from Rita Dowling, and percussion from both Pete and Coke Escovedo. Titles include the killer "Aqua Dulce (Cool-Ade)", a fantastic version of "Gimme Shelter", a sublime of Clare Fischer's "Morning", and the cuts "Ran Kan Kan", "Descarga Cubana", "Curacao", and "Somewhere In The Night".

Ace (UK), Mid 60s. New Copy Gatefold ... $19.99
Great groovy pop from the Italian scene of the 60s – a wealth of rare singles from female singers, almost all of whom we've never heard before! We'll confess to a long love and deep knowledge of female French singers from the time – but also admit a strong ignorance about most Italian pop, which always seems a bit harder to find – especially collected together in sets like this for the English-speaking world. And while we totally love the French sets from Ace Records, we almost dig this one even more – as the whole thing's so fresh, so groovy that each new tune is a real delight – as bold orchestrations mix with mod rhythms, rockish instrumentation, and some totally cool Italian lyrics sung by a batch of female singers who've definitely got us already digging for more. Titles include "Baluba Shake" by Brunetta E I Suoi Balubas, "Il Mio Posto Quale" by Ornella Vanoni, "Sono Qui Con Voi by Caterina Caselli, "Un Amore Inutile" by Isabella Ianetti, "La Notte E Fatta Per Rubare" by Catherine Spaak, "Il Geghege" by Rita Pavone, "Ragazzo Triste" by Patty Pravo, "Se Telefonando" by Mina, and "Questa Sinfona" by Carmen Villani.

Melbourne, Australia may not instantly come to mind as a center of soul music – but in recent years the city's seen a huge growth in its deep funk scene – which has also produced lots of great soul singers as well! This great package is a strong overview of the female soul going down in the city right now – vocalists who are very much in the vein of other contemporary funk singers – like Alice Russell or Sharon Jones – only one of whom, Kylie Auldist, we've ever heard before! There's a core band to the project – and all cuts are exclusive to this set, with the singers swapping out from track to track while the funky combo grooves on.

Philips (Japan), 1969. New Copy ... On June 10, 2015
The rare 3rd album by Gilberto Gil, and a key piece of the Tropicalia puzzle – one of the most wildly experimental albums from those years, and Gil's last before going into exile! The sound is much more electric than his other albums from the late 60's – and the production, songwriting, and instrumentation get very crazy at times – but never too crazy to cover up Gilberto's excellent singing, which is still as filled with feeling as ever. Arrangements are by the mighty Rogerio Duprat, who does as great a job here of balancing Gil's sensitivities as he does on Gal Costa's sublime efforts from 1969 – and the instrumentation is a weird and wonderful mix of Bahian rhythms, fuzzy guitar, and crazy electronics – all heartfelt one minute, freaked out the next. Tracks include "Cerebro Eletronico", "Volks Volkswagen Blue", "Futurivel", and "2001", which was written by Tom Ze and Rita Lee – plus the wild cut "Objecto Semi-Identificado", which is sort of a John Cage-esque track of found radio and electronics, with vocals by Gil!

Nara's voice is incredible, and has a lot more emotion and feeling than on her earlier albums. Every track on the album was written by Chico Buarque – and titles include "Mambembe", "Olhos Nos Olhos", "Samba E Amor", "Dueto", "A Rita", "Trocando Em Miudos", and "Baioque". CD

The work is as groundbreaking today as it was at the end of the 60s – a brilliant testament to the power of artists to really break down boundaries in art and music, and find a way to mix the political with the popular at the same time. Titles include a fantastic version of Gal Costa and Caetano Veloso singing "Baby", the "Tres Caravelas" duet between Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil, Gil's great reading of "Bat Macumba" with Costa and Veloso, Nara Leao singing "Lindoneia", Os Mutantes performing "Panis Et Circenses", Gilberto on "Geleia Geral, Caetano doing "Coracao Materno, and Rita Lee, Gal Costa, and Caetano Veloso singing "Enquanto Seu Lobo Nao Vem".

Guitarist Jan Akkerman bridges many worlds here – deftly stepping between spare acoustic guitar modes and some much more dynamic electric ones – but all with a sense of care and vision that really makes the record come together! The set begins with a few themes from John Dowland, updated by Akkerman, but still played with an ancient sort of vibe – one that leads into some very cool fusion moments that mix centuries-old aesthetics with the modern – creating a sense of anachronism that really keeps things interesting. Gene Orloff handled some of the larger arrangements, but the focus is always on Akkerman's deft work on the guitar – and titles include "Britannia", "House Of The King", "Javeh", "Lammy", and "A Fantasy".

The album's got a very free, open sort of vibe – definitely in the spirit of the AACM, but with some 70s spiritual touches too – especially once things get going, and some of the more rhythmic tracks take hold! The group features the great Ed Wilkerson on tenor, clarinet, and didgeridoo – sounding great, and returning a favor to Bankhead after the bassist's years in Wilkerson's groups. Other players include Mars Williams on saxes, James Sanders on violin, Avreeayl Ra on drums and percussion, and Ernie Adams on more percussion – a lineup that's equally well-suited to free improv numbers, and some of the more groove-oriented tracks. Titles include "Over Under Inside Out", "Chicago Senorita", "East Village", "Morning Sun/Harvest Moon", and "Flying Through Your Dreams". CD

✨✧ Franco BattiatoFranco Battiato (Za/Cafe Table Musik) ... CD
BMG (Italy), 1977. Used ... $5.99
Fantastic! This is another one of Franco Battiato's amazing recordings from the 70's, and it features two extended pieces – "ZA" and "Cafe Table Musik". "Za" is a long piece for solo piano, with lots of spare minimal moments, and haunting trancelike lines of chords that build very very slowly. It's a beautiful exercise in restraint, and the kind of haunting soundscape that Battiato is legendary for. "Cafe Table Musik" is a bit more complex, although it's still got minimal piano progressions as its core. The piano builds in sweet overlapping lines, and is interrupted briefly by a female voice, which sings and speaks in Italian, and there's also an occasional male voice speaking in an authoritative tone. Very hard to describe, but completely haunting, and very very beautiful. Plus, it's a favorite for just about everyone who works here! CD

✨✧ Les BaxterHell's Belles ... LP
Sidewalk, 1969. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
Fantastic funkiness! Although Les Baxter's best known for his easy listening work in the late 50s/early 60's, this 1969 biker flick soundtrack is a motherlode of funky funky tracks, and a veritable cornucopia of breakbeats! Highlights include the classics "Hogin' Machine" and "Hot Wind", but there's lots of other nice ones like "Soul Groove" and "Scoobee Doo". The drums are nice and hard, and there's plenty of fuzzy fuzzy guitar to go around nicely! A few tracks have vocals, but the instrumentals more than make up for any weak spots. Essential.

Chicago Trio (Dawkins/Bankhead/Drake)Velvet Songs – To Baba Fred Anderson ... CD
Rogue Art (France), 2011. New Copy 2CDs ... $22.99
A great performance by the Chicago trio of Ernest Dawkins on reeds, Harrison Bankhead on bass, and Hamid Drake on drums and percussion – dedicated to their late scene-mate Fred Anderson, and played with an open, exploratory sound that Anderson would have loved! At times, there's a very unstructured quality to the recording – the most unfettered approach forged by the AACM – with Dawkins especially stretching out, on soprano, alto, or tenor sax. At other points, though, Bankhead's wonderful basslines pull things in, and give them a soulful solidity that underscores the spiritual elements of the music – that element in his sound we always appreciate, and which seems to bring Drake's percussion strongly into focus too – creating a groove that's almost like the Ethnic Heritage Ensemble at times. Titles include "One For Fred", "Waltz Of Passion", "Jah Music", "Down N The Delta", "The Rumble", "Sweet 22nd Street", and "Woman Of Darfur". CD

Joe CubaJoe Cuba ... LP
Discos Embajador, Early 60s. Very Good ... $19.99
Great early stuff by Joe Cuba! Sure, the tracks were recorded before Joe's legendary Latin Soul years – but the vibe is nice and fresh, and the tight stripped-down approach shows how much Joe was ready to revitalize Latin music in the 60s. The percussion's nice and strong, and many cuts have a very cool Latin vibes sound! Titles include "Joe Cuba's Mambo", "Con Ni Mambo", "Alegre Mambo", and "Carita Sucia". Very tasty!

Dino & Montevideo BluesMontevideo Blues (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Lion, 1972. New Copy ... $8.99
Really compelling work from the enigmatic Dino – a set recorded with slow, slinky backings from the Montevideo Blues combo! The album's a lot less blues than you might guess from the group's name – and in a way, the approach is almost more folksy, or singer/songwriter overall – with a key focus on Dino's political lyrics, and backings that often follow along with snakey guitar and slinky rhythms. There's a raspy brilliance to the whole set – and Dino almost sounds like Uruguay's equivalent of Geraldo Vandre – a powerful, positive singer, but one who never reached a bigger audience outside his homeland. Titles include "Sentimiento", "Si Te Vas", "Montevideo Blues", "Milonga De Pelo Largo", "Para Hacer Musica Para Hacer", and "Chamarrita El Chiquero". CD reissue is as amazing as the original – with a huge booklet with notes, history, and lyrics – plus 7 more bonus tracks too! CD

Dokkerman & The Turkeying FellazIllegal Move ... CD
Tramp (Germany), 2015. New Copy ... $12.99
A modern funk melting pot from Hungary! Group leader Tamas "Dokkerman" Michelberger is on keyboards, leading a great 9 piece group strongly rooted in gritty 70s funk – heavy drums and fierce bass grooves, and horns that show some love to JBs style funky soul as well as strains of African styled funk, and that extends to the guitars, too – but they're not all dismissive of their richly diverse European heritage. That all makes it sound like there might be too many ingredients, but that's not the case all – the gritty funk at the core holds it together nicely! Strong modern funk on Tramp, which continues to be strong source for both rare vintage and contemporary grooves! Includes "Vigyazz, Kesz, Ot", "Illegal Move", "Plan B", "Beast Chase", "Antilope", "Mango Season", "La Casa En Llamas", "Once", "Snake Bite" and "Tinigondok". CD

Dr JohnGris Gris ... CD
Atco/Real Gone, 1968. New Copy ... $11.99 15.98
The great Dr John at his freaky deaky best – working here in a mindblowing mix of New Orleans roots and late 60s psych – all served up in some heady studio space and instrumental touches! The sound's unlike anything that ever went before – and is way better here than on some of John's later, straighter material – clearly the work of years of creative genius, as the Doctor, Mac Rebennack, draws on both his heritage from the Crescent City, and his years of work in the underground rock scene in LA! Harold Batiste handled the arrangements – and the record really paves the way for so many famous LA/New Orleans albums to come in the 70s – but never with results this mindblowingly trippy. The tracks are wild, funky, and messed-up New Orleans R&B filtered through a heavy dose of psychedelics – and titles include "Mama Roux", "Croker Courtbullion", "Gris Gris Gumbo Ya Ya", and the original version of "I Walk On Guilded Splinters".
