Black John, the conquerer root - in his hands!
With all due respect to the "All Music Review" I have to step in here and help out here. Personally,I have waited a long time for this to finally appear on cd. This is one of the world's lost classic albums. If you take the trouble to read through the backing band you might get some idea of what kind of session this was. The original tapes for this disc were lost or mutilated, that matters not. This is the Dr. John that millions have never heard. Despite the very respectable career since this classic and it has been a very incredible one - do yourself a favor, listen to "Familiar Reality" it may take you a couple of times to get it. "Sun, the Moon, and (those) Herbs" the gift that will keep on giving. Trust me on this. Music that could change your (anemic) life. 10 stars.Was this review helpful?
