9/10 RobMcD Customer review, 20th September 2016

Some music is a bright summer day and the sea lapping around your feet. Some music is winter rain on litter strewn pavements. Some music is an infinite number of angels dancing on the head of a pin. Some music is being trapped in a skip while enraged baboons beat on it with sticks. Gris Gris is none of those things. Gris Gris is music that slithers across the floor in the dead of night and does something unspeakable in your wardrobe while you are asleep.

An unholy stew of banjos, flutes, mandolins, chanting voices, throbbing drums and other instruments that possibly don’t actually exist lollop about in a weird wobbly slush of sound that brings to mind images of foggy Louisiana swamps, trees bedecked with stuff that looks like cobwebs but isn’t, ruined Antibellum plantation houses haunted by Civil War ghosts and frogs lurking in dank undergrowth making that ‘burrrrrrap’ noise.

A track by track dissection of this record isn’t the point- it’s about atmosphere, summoning up the feel, the spirit of a place. And it’s brilliant.


9/10 Andrew Customer review, 3rd November 2014

Totally recommend this album by Dr John, its a real trip of funky voodoo psychedelic rock. Though recorded in California it is a real New Orleans sounding recording. Favourites are Mama Roux and I walk On Gilded Splinters, but every track is worthy. Its not the lengthiest album, but it packs in a lot of quality and its stew of influences and styles adds up to an intoxicating brew of groovy woozy rock. I don't have any other Dr John albums, but listening again to this makes me think I should correct that. If you have interest in funk, rock, delta blues or similar you could do a lot worse than digging this out.
