This 1969 follow-up to Gris Gris adds images of a torn America to Dr. John's voodoo-bound New Orleans wildman sound. Nobody ever asked Mac for social commentary, but this is an overlooked gem in his catalog, and the melancholy plea "Glowin'" may be its highlight. The textured sound is much more experimental than Dr. John's commercial breakthrough with the Meters.
