I won't be the first to say this, but the good voodoo doctor has proven to be a fine musical cure to many a folk's musical malaise over the decades: got a taste for some jazzy Happy Hour blues? 1978's City Lights cleans your clock all nice and spiffy-like. Feeling strange and swamped? '71's The Sun, Moon & Herbs will haunt you long after the thunder stops a'rollin'.
That being said, The Night Tripper really outdid himself here. A fresh, young ensemble cast brings the spookier elements out into the open against a plethora of bone-tight grooves and plenty of other meaty embellishments that, if nothing else, will take you out of your head and deep into the bayou where you belong. Monstrously good!
