Description

Colored Mono Vinyl LP Reissue Mastered By Kevin Gray From the Original Master Tapes & Pressed At RTI

As he became Dr. John (real name Mac Rebennack), it was the Night Tripper's LA session work with musicians like Sonny & Cher, Canned Heat, and Frank Zappa that allowed him to start conjuring up his singular vision of piano psych-pop to walk alongside his authentic New Orleans upbringing. Gris Gris, the king of the psychedelic bayou's 1968 debut, is the hypnotic, mystical and powerful sound of the swamp coming to life. While Gris Gris contains moments that make it a time stamped symbol of its era, it might have well been made in outer space. Recorded in its own psychic and stylistic vacuum, the album borrows as heavily from the New Orleans musical culture in which he grew up as it does the looming continuous pulse of war, heavy drugs, and the end of the free love/hippie movement. The cosmic numbers "Gris-Gris Gumbo Ya-Ya," "Mama Roux," "Jump Sturdy" and "I Walk on Gilded Splinters" have all gone onto become cult classics.
