Overview

On City That Care Forgot, Dr. John delivers an elegantly elegiac homage to his drowned hometown that's at once an incredible collection of songs -- possibly his best work of the past two decades -- and a bold statement and cultural event. Musically anchored with that legendary gravelly drawl and a bouyant riot of swamp-voodoo piano grooves (and aid from a few friends like Eric Clapton) the album's 14 tracks also provide a lyrical reminder that the rawness and divisions exposed by Hurricane Katrina are as fresh as ever.
