Dr. John a.k.a the night tripper is a singer, songwriter, voice
actor, pianist, and guitarist, whose music combines Blues,
Pop, Jazz, Zydeco, Boogie Woogie and Rock & Roll.
Active as a session musician since the late 1950s, he gained
a cult following in the late 1960's following the release of his
album Gris-Gris and his appearance at the Bath Festival
of Blues and Progressive music. He performed a wildly

resulted in his signature ‘voodoo' music style.

The center-piece of the album is ''Familiar Reality,'' a
long cut based on one evil-sounding Stones-type riff.
As usual, Dr. John's strength lies in his galvanizing;
mesmerizing choruses. The ones on ''Black John
the Conqueror'' and ''File Gumbo'' are unforgettable.
