  • In his 72nd year on the planet, New Orleans' own Dr. John issues Locked Down, recorded in Nashville with the Black Keys' Dan Auerbach as producer, and a host of younger players. The pair cut tracks that evoke his earliest experiments on Atlantic Records--melding New Orleans R&B, swampy rock, and tripped-out grooves--without sounding retro.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.63) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Full of muscled, vintage R&B grooves, fevered soloing, psychedelic arrangements and oracular mumbo jumbo, it's the wildest record Rebennack has made in many years."

Entertainment Weekly (p.72) - "[T]here's no denying the vintage voodoo -- or the palpable disgust -- the Doctor summons with DAn Auerbach of the Black Keys..." -- Grade: A-

Magnet (p.54) - "The result is sharp and well-recorded....The urgent grooves on 'Getaway,' with its psychedelic flourishes, will sound good on the radio..."

Billboard (p.36) - "'Eleggua' overlaps Curtis Mayfield, gris-gris funk and a sweet soul hook; and 'You Lie' offers a taste of what Dr. John would sound like if the Black Keys and Morphine joined forces to back him."

Q (Magazine) (p.96) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "It still oozes that very specific, seamy Dr John funk throughout, from the brilliantly delirious title track through to his pitch black state-of-the nation address in 'Ice Age'..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.93) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he night tripping grooves are tight, cosmically inclined, and brewed with a real soulfulness."

Uncut (magazine) (p.62) - "Throughout, Weissenfeldt's beats are savage. The horn accents are sharp and soulful."
