2012 album from the New Orleans legend, produced by Black Keys guitarist and uber-fan Dan Auerbach. Locked Down distills half a century of this Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee's picaresque musical history, melding his shamanistic stage persona with the authority of a consummate studio musician, the cosmic conjurer with the street-savvy poet. The 10 new songs on Locked Down, written by Dr. John with Auerbach and a handpicked crew of backing musicians, combine incantatory chants ("Ellegua") and often politically charged raps ("Revolution") with candid and soulful reflections ("My Children, My Angels"), swaggering R&B ("Big Shot"), and a healthy dose of hypnotic, simmering funk ("The King Of Izness"). As with much of what this multiple Grammy-award winning singer and composer has recorded over the last five decades, the Big Easy is the musical and spiritual jumping-off point, but these new tracks incorporate a world's worth of influences, from gospel and blues to psychedelic rock and Afro-beat.

I received this album only a couple days ago and so far am very pleased. I have never listened to much Dr. John in the past but as soon as I heard a few teasers a few months ago I was very intrigued!
I have only managed to squeeze in a few complete listens to the album on vinyl but so far I am very pleased with the quality. Sounds smooth and clean. It doesn't say anywhere that it is a 180g but it is definitely heavier than a standard LP(which is nice).
As far as the music itself, I have managed to listen to the included CD quite a few times in the car and find myself enjoying it more and more every time. The musical arrangement is great and the strange funk sound is something I'd like to hear more of these days!
All in all a great buy.
