EDITORS’ NOTES

Desitively Bonnaroo (Cajun for "better than the best") is the final installment of Dr. John's early-'70s New Orleans funk trilogy, with producer Allen Toussaint and matchless instrumental quartet the Meters again onboard. The funk runs deep in both uptempo tracks like the subtly discofied "What Goes Around (Comes Around)" and the slow slide into sadness of "Me Minus You Equals Loneliness." Horns, female backing singers, and the bandleader's oily rumble generate Big Easy perfection.
