The Doctor will see you

Mac Rebennack, more commonly known as Dr. John, has not spent his career singing topically political songs.

But his new album will be a protest album. City That Care Forgot which is named for his beloved hometown, New Orleans, will be filled with songs which talk about how the great city on the bend in the Mississippi is now a shadow of its former self.

Dr. John is profiled in the New York Times today.
