Dr. John - Gris Gris
Original MONO mix of the album that launched Mac Rebennack's DR JOHN persona... a fully formed transmutation from his early hi-octane swamp R&B guitar days into the psychedelic night tripper!
Jackpot Records - "While “Gris Gris” contains moments that make it a type 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 album was taken under the wing of a small percentage of the "underground" upon its release in 1968 and did not find a true following for years."
