  • On Dr. John's first major-label effort, and first vocal studio album in ten years, he performs a set of pop standards including Cole Porter's "Love for Sale" and Johnny Mercer's "Accentuate the Positive." After starting out with a wild stage act and unusual costumes, Dr. John has evolved into a vocal stylist and piano virtuoso, which makes the idea of doing this sort of material appealing. And he does it well, turning out a leisurely duet with Rickie Lee Jones on "Makin' Whoopee" that won a Grammy (Best Jazz Vocal Performance, Duo or Group), and giving sad feeling to "My Buddy." Maybe he has changed since the Gris Gris days, but even a mellowed Dr. John is a tasty one. ~ William Ruhlmann
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone - 3 Stars - Good

Down Beat (10/89, pp.30-31) - "...One of the nicest things about this swing through Memory Lane is the way old Mac Rebennack...isn't so respectful of any traditions that he's afraid to slop 'em around, then put his own...stamp on them....Good-natured fun..."

CD Buyer's Guide - wonderfully bluesy piano & likably gruff vocals
