Dr. John – Ultrasonic Studios 11/6/73 (2CD)


We are told .....

Originally broadcast by Hempstead, Long Island’s WLIR-FM, this superb set captures Dr. John at the height of his powers, as he transitioned from his psychedelic phase into a full embrace of New Orleans R&B. Backed by Sugar Bear Welch on guitar, Darrell Leonard and Jerry Jumonville on horns and John Boudreaux on drums, his keyboard playing was rarely better, and the band frequently hit a monstrous groove. It’s presented here complete with background notes and rare images.
