Of course, not all the classics are on this blog yet, this blog's main purpose is to reveal some of the 'classics' that are not certified as being one yet. In my eyes those albums are classics, have sustained the test of time, aurally that is, because they are often not in press anymore, and hard to find. This album is a classic, and most people judge it as such. Every now and then there's room for such classics, because my blog is also my way of paying tribute to the lates and the greats. I admire Dr. John primarily for this album, a lot of his other 70s output is doable, but he has since degraded himself into a sort of novelty, appearing on all the lame blues festivals available.
This is why Dr. John was a great, visionary musician. It influenced so many other artists, yet sounds utterly only like itself.
