 Dr. John — In The Right Place (1973)

Dr. John — In The Right Place
"Right Place Wrong Time"
≈  Considered to be one of Dr. John’s biggest hits, “Right Place, Wrong Time“ has been used in movie soundtracks, TV commercials, New Orleans advertisements, etc.  The song was released in 1973 on the album “In The Right Place” on Atco Records.
≈  This tune introduced the world to the vocal stylings of the good Doctor with such colorful lyrics as “Refried confusion is making itself clear” and “…need a little brain salad surgery.”  ”Right Place” is still considered to be one of the top choices in the grand New Orleans songbook. I am of the firm belief that you shouldn’t be two feet from this song at any point in your entire life. Keep it close, y’all.

Review by James Chrispell:
¤ "Dr. John finally struck paydirt here and was certainly In the Right Place. With the hit single "Right Place Wrong Time" bounding up the charts, this fine collection saw many unaware listeners being initiated into New Orleans-style rock. Also including Allen Toussaint's "Life," and a funky little number entitled "Traveling Mood," which shows off the good doctor's fine piano styling, and with able help from the Meters as backup group, In the Right Place is still a fine collection to own."
Right Place, Wrong Time:
Review by Matthew Greenwald
¤ Easily one of the most familiar songs by Dr. John, "Right Place, Wrong Time" gave "the Doctor" his first (and only) Top 20 hit in early 1973. Written and constructed (with the aid of New Orleans-based funksters the Meters) in the studio, it was a case of a song falling into place. A funk base pre-staged disco by a couple of years, and the lyrics are surely autobiographical, given the Doctor's substance dependency at the time.
Such a Night:
Composed by: Dr. John / Lincoln Chase / Mac Rebennack
Review by Matthew Greenwald
¤ Written over a decade before Dr. John ever cut it (1973), "Such a Night" was a freak hit in Europe. Musically, it has a rolling, stride piano-driven arrangement that flows through the entire song. The lyrics are a great tale of forbidden love and stealing another's girl away. The song got a second life after "the Doctor's" show-stopping performance of it at the Band's The Last Waltz.
Cold Cold Cold:
Composed by: Alvin Robinson / Dr. John / Jessie Hill / Mac Rebennack / Smokey Robinson
Review by Matthew Greenwald
¤ Not to be confused with the Lowell George song of the same name, "Cold, Cold, Cold" was another one of Dr. John's songs that had been lying around for several years before he cut it. A rolling, funk base propels the music, with a decidedly gospel background vocal arrangement. Lyrically, the shattering of a relationship is at the core here, but "the Doctor," as usual, tells it with wit and whimsy.
¤ Celui-ci fait partie des premiers albums et c'est l'un des meilleurs de la période.

¤ The population of the city was 343,829 as of the 2010 U.S. Census.
¤ The Census Bureau in July 2006 estimated the population of New Orleans to be 223,000; a subsequent study estimated that 32,000 additional residents had moved to the city as of March 2007, bringing the estimated population to 255,000, approximately 56% of the pre-Katrina population level. Another estimate, based on data on utility usage from July 2007, estimated the population to be approximately 274,000 or 60% of the pre-Katrina population. These estimates are somewhat smaller than a third estimate, based on mail delivery records, from the Greater New Orleans Community Data Center in June 2007, which indicated that the city had regained approximately two-thirds of its pre-Katrina population. In 2008, the Census Bureau revised upward its population estimate for the city, to 336,644. Most recently, 2010 estimates show that neighborhoods that did not flood are near 100% of their pre-Katrina populations, and in some cases, exceed 100% of their pre-Katrina populations.
¤ V roce 2010 byl roční počet vražd 49,1 na 100 000 obyvatel, což bylo nejvíce ze všech měst v USA nad 250 000 obyvatel. Americký průměr pro rok 2010 činil 4,8 vražd na 100 000 obyvatel. 97% pachatelů byli černoši a 95% muži.
