Evokes his heyday with glorious effect
Dr John - Locked Down

When Dr. John, the master of voodoo blues, was given a Black Keys album by his granddaughter, a pan-generational connection was initiated. Two years on, man-of-the moment Dan Auerbach oversees production duties to showcase a mystical brew of funk, gospel and delta rock. Aided by the Keys’ touring band members, the good doctor delivers a set of songs - from the sweaty swagger of ‘Ice Age’ to the jazz-infused ‘Getaway’ - that evoke his ‘Night Tripper’ heyday with glorious effect.
