In the Right Place

In the Right Place

Working with producer Allen Toussaint and the Meters, the second installment of Dr. John's early-'70s New Orleans funk trilogy resulted in a righteous hit single ("Right Place, Wrong Time") and funk arrangements synchronized like the gears of a finely tuned watch. Dr. John borrows "I Been Hoodood" from his minstrel-singing grandfather, illuminates "Life" with flashes of New Orleans piano boogie, and takes a raffish soft-shoe stroll through the Crescent City demimonde on "Such a Night."
