KOSMO's VINYL of the Week:
This week we are spiritually in New Orleans for Dr. John's, backed by The Meters with Allen Toussaint arranging and producing, "Right Place Wrong Time". First released on the Dr.'s "In The Right Place" LP by ATCO on the 25th Feb 1973"...
"You can't get more New Orleans than this combination, even if it was not made there and the guitar solo was laid on later by the in-demand session player David Spinozza.
Mac Rebennack (AKA Dr John) grew up in New Orleans 3rd Ward and started recording at age 14 or 15, circa 1956. He soon became a writer and producer, but it would take until 1973, with this record, for him to front a big hit record of his own.
I think of it as one of the finest examples of someone being able to make a hit record without having to compromise their musical identity in any way - it's all about what he was always about - New Orleans R&B." - KV
