Dr. John – Locked Down (Warner Music Canada)

Dr. John has been cranking out album after album for the past 40 plus years and on Locked Down, he sounds as fresh and relevant as he did all those years ago when he was a part of The Band’s The Last Waltz. Produced by the Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach, John’s swampy blues sound for which he is so well known is in full effect. There is an air of mystery that comes with the bulk of these songs, fleshed out with John’s keyboards and his well-worn vocals, the sound and feeling of this great record is straight from the 60’s.
