2012 Grammy Award Winner for Best Blues Album!
150 Gram Vinyl , Plated and Pressed at Pallas! Produced, Mixed and Features Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys) Includes bonus CD of album!
New Orleans legend Dr. John's Nonesuch debut, produced by Black Keys
guitarist and uber-fan Dan Auerbach, distills half a century of this Rock and
Roll Hall of Fame inductee's picaresque musical history, melding his shamanistic
stage persona with the authority of a consummate studio musician, the cosmic
conjurer with the street-savvy poet. The ten songs on Locked Down, written by
Dr. John with Auerbach and a handpicked crew of backing musicians, combine
incantatory chants ("Ellegua") and often politically charged raps ("Revolution")
with candid and soulful reflections ("My Children, My Angels"), swaggering R&B
("Big Shot"), and a healthy dose of hypnotic, simmering funk ("The King Of
Izness"). As with much of what this multiple Grammy-award winning singer and
composer has recorded over the last five decades, the Big Easy is the musical
and spiritual jumping-off point, but these new tracks incorporate a world's
worth of influences, from gospel and blues to psychedelic rock and Afro-beat.
