DR JOHN

Let ‘Em In

(Wings At The Speed Of Sound, 1976)

There’s certainly something in that New Orleans air… Mac Rebennack began working in the 1950s alongside rock & roll legends Frankie Ford and Lloyd Price. Reborn in the late 60s as Dr John, Mac garnered a new generation of fans including Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton and Ringo Starr. His song Walk On Gilded Splinters has been covered by Cher, Humble Pie, the Allman Bros, Beck and Paul Weller.
