Dr. John burst into the popular consciousness in the late '60s with the release of GRIS GRIS: THE NIGHT TRIPPER, an album that saw the gifted multi-instrumentalist filtering his years of experience as a New Orleans session player through the cracked lens of the psychedelic era. Though that album's dark blend of New Orleans rhythms and outr‚ production techniques made it a '60s counter-culture favorite, it drew from a much more venerable set of musical traditions. On 1992's GOIN' BACK TO NEW ORLEANS, Dr. John takes his audience on a guided tour of New Orleans jazz and r&b, assaying memorable covers of beloved standards like W.C. Handy's "Careless Love" and more obscure numbers like Jelly Roll Morton's "I Thought I Heard Buddy Bolden Say." Dr. John and his accompanists, including a plethora of New Orleans music luminaries, give these numbers compelling and authoritative readings. GOIN' TO NEW ORLEANS is a fascinating slice of New Orleans history that also sheds light on the origins of Dr. John's inimitable aesthetic.

Rolling Stone (9/17/92, p.96) - 3.5 Stars - Good Plus - "...the music of Dr. John has never strayed far from its roots. And those roots have never been more joyously, bawdily or playfully celebrated than they are on this album..."
Q (9/92, p.71) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "..serves as a tour d'horizon of the music of the Crescent City, its don't-rush-me vocals, with-you-in-a-minute rhythms and all-pervading swing.."
Down Beat (9/92, p.34) - 4 Stars - Very Good - "...the culmination of Mac Rebennack's career to date....evokes Wynton, with high-stepping horn charts and a retro repertoire that goes back to Buddy Bolden and beyond..."
