AllMusic Review by

Doctor John's second solo piano album finds him combining country, blues, and New Orleans standards with originals, half of them instrumentals, and half of them containing vocals that sound like they were recorded off the piano microphone. This is not a high-tech recording, by any means, but in its unadorned way it does capture the flavor of Doctor John as directly as any record he's made.
