The 1974 season finale of the Chicago based Soundstage series came billed as Dr. John's New Orleans Swamp. A wild southern party featuring the cream of New Orleans music scene. Some sort of Louisiana soup bone including Earl King's downhome blues, Professor Longhair's colorful creole pianism, The Meters' swampy, gritty grooves, and Dr. John himself with his special mix of funk, blues, psychedelia and African music. Gumbo is ready! Are you?
