Dr. John’s Gumbo is a covers album that was released in 1972. Dr. John and other former NBew Orleans musicians recorded it in Los Angeles. It introduced me to the music of Professor Longhair and Huey “Piano” Smith, among others. We weren’t hearing their stuff on rock stations or seeing it in local record stores.
It’s one of my favorite covers albums. Hard to believe it’s 50 years old today.
