Album of the Day
In The Right Place
Mac Rebennack had paid his dues on the New Orleans music scene before emerging in the late 1960s as Dr. John. The aptly titled IN THE RIGHT PLACE finds the man in the studio with two of the Crescent City's finest, producer Allen Toussaint and backing band extraordinaire The Meters. Most of the 11 tracks on the 1973 Atco release were Dr. John originals, including soon-to-be signature songs “Such A Night” and the Top 10 hit “Right Place, Wrong Time.” A rich and spicy gumbo of soul and funk, IN THE RIGHT PLACE became the colorful performer's most successful album, and it remains one of his best.
