I just heard that news, Fred...I remember when my vinyl mentor introduced me to The Night Tripper...If any of you don't have a copy of "Gris Gris", it is essential listening to get a taste of the music...My vinyl mentor had the 45' of "Guilded Splinters" and it affected me then as it affects me now...I guess (unlike Dr. John himself) I must have been in the right place at the right time! :wink:



Of course, that wasn't the only highlight in the man's catalog...Listen to these! :)

This was supposedly the last song that Doc Pomus had a hand in (co-writing it with Mac) before he died...

Those of you 90's kids might remember his theme song for this hugely successful sitcom! 8)
