Dr. John: In The Right Place

Jaan Uhelszki, Creem, June 1973

PACK UP the voodoo, stash the gumbo, 'cuz Dr. John has gone legit. Used to be a time when he was Numero Uno Witch Doctor. One day he slipped on a Dog Jowl mask, uttered some choice incantations, rounded up some excommunicated Holy Rollers and was on his way to the Wonderful World of the Weird. Dr. John the Nighttripper.
