Dr. John, 'Locked Down'

The New Orleans master brings voodoo funk into the 21st century, with help from a Black Key.

Read the RS review: "Full of muscled, vintage R&B grooves, fevered soloing, psychedelic arrangements and oracular mumbo jumbo, it's the wildest record Rebennack has made in many years. And it announces [Dan] Auerbach's arrival alongside Danger Mouse as an A-list retro-modern studio scientist."
