Album Notes and Credits

Notes & Personnel Info
Muze PNote New Orleans piano legend Dr. John is mad as hell, and he's letting the world know it in no uncertain terms on THE CITY THAT CARE FORGOT. Over swampy, percolating grooves that bear more greasy funk than blues, Dr. John melodically excoriates the U.S. government for leaving his home town in a post-Katrina lurch on tunes like the mournful title track (with help from Eric Clapton and Ani DiFranco) and the Willie Nelson duet "Promises, Promises."

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (p.75)
- 3 stars out of 5 -- "'You Might Be Surprised' is a grand Fifties-style ballad infused with rich Ellington-esque horns and gallows humor....It's a bittersweet dispatch from just above the waterline."

JazzTimes (pp.60-61)
- "CITY THAT CARE FORGOT is at once the most fervent, acerbic, livid music Mac Rebennack has ever made; the most eloquent and probably the funkiest, too."

Q (Magazine)
- 4 stars out of 5 -- "Full of righteous anger....CITY THAT CARE FORGOT is the liveliest, funkiest Dr. John album in a long, long time."

Blender (Magazine)
- "In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, superdelectable New Orleans piano master Dr. John got something bigger than religion. He got sincerity..."

Record Collector (magazine)
- 5 stars out of 5 -- "Music rarely gets as heartbreaking as 'My People Need A Second Line,' which brilliantly ups gear midway to a glorious and defiant marching band blowout."
