Dr. John From Way Down Yonder in New Orleans

Danny Holloway, New Musical Express, 29 April 1972

DR. JOHN'S contributions to pop music have been highly original and creative. Even if he claims that all the credit is due to the music of New Orleans, there is so much he has added and combined. The end result feels like it's purely his music. Actually, it's a combination of his magic as a musician and the mystical voodooism of South Louisiana.
