Gris-Gris stylized as GRIS-gris is the debut album by Dr. John Mac Rebennack. Produced by Harold Battiste, it was released on Atco Records in 1968. The musical style of Gris-Gris is a hybrid of New Orleans rhythm and blues and psychedelic rock. Despite the New Orleans style, it was recorded in California, albeit with several native New Orleans musicians.

Посмотреть сведения об участниках альбома, рецензии, композиции и приобрести альбом Yellow Vinyl от Gris-Gris на , by Dr. Towards the end of 1965, after their meteoric rise to the top of the charts with I Got You Babe, Sonny and Cher were invited to perform at a private party in the penthouse apartment of mining tycoon Charles Engelhard Jr. at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City. The invitation came after Jackie Kennedy, a guest of the intimate party and on one of her first social outings following the tragic death of her late husband, expressed her wish to see the rising duo perform in the flesh at the event. John's Gris-Gris is among the most enduring recordings of the psychedelic era it sounds as mysterious and spooky in the 21st century as it did in 1968. It is the album where Mac Rebennack established a stage identity that has served him well. Almost everyone played percussion. Gris-Gris sounds like a post-midnight ceremony recorded in the bayou swamp instead of L. s Gold Star Studio where Phil Spector cut hits. The atmosphere is thick, smoky, serpentine, foreboding. Rebennack inhabits his character fully, delivering Creole French and slang English effortlessly in the grain of his half-spoken, half-sung voice. Gris gris is the New Orleans term for voodoo, and one could be forgiven for thinking this album was recorded in the dead of night in one of the city s famed graveyards. Well, it was recorded in the dead of night at Los Angeles famed Gold Star Studios, where Phil Spector recorded many of his classics. John the Night Tripper, he of the feathered headdresses and name taken from an 1840s New Orleans root doctor. The result was probably the spookiest and most hypnotic album ever made voodoo psychedelia is about as close as you can come, but doesn t quite capture the otherworldly vibe. Gris-Gris Gumbo Ya Ya. Produced by Harold Battiste. Album Gris-Gris. Gris-Gris Gumbo Ya Ya Lyrics. They call me, Dr. John Known as the Night Tripper Sazzle a little Gris-Gris in my hand Day trippin' up, back down the bayou I'm the last of the best They call me the Gris-Gris man. Sellin' Gris-Gris gumbo ya ya Mm Gris-Gris gumbo ya ya Mm Mm Mm. So why war if your neighbors give you trouble Put your fitness in the street Seal a Jew in my whole car in the street Try my Dragon Blood My Drawen Hidin' My Secret Sand Try a little black cat if your woman got another man So easy does it as you put it in the palm of your hand. John The Night Trippers Gris-Gris is an album that needs to be experienced. The second track doesn't even contain any vocals from The Night Tripper and instead sets the mood over violin strings chanting and rhythmic drumbeat. After the introduction of Gris-Gris Gumbo, Danse Kalinda Ba Doom makes it clear this is no ordinary audio outing. Mama Roux takes the topics of Medicine Men and 2nd lines but lays it over a funky beat that grooves and wouldn't have been out of place in a disco at the time.
