An All-Star Tribute Album To Dr. John Will Soon Be Released; Watch Warren Haynes’ Contribution

first_imgThere’s no denying the musical legacy of Dr. John, as the New Orleans-based pianist has been a fixture for well over 50 years. Dr. John’s signature honky-tonk piano playing and gravelly voice has been an inspiration on every musician, as his unique swing continues to define a genre of music. It’s no wonder that an all-star group of artists came together to celebrate John in a 2014 concert, The Musical Mojo Of Dr. John.Now, that concert is finally being released as a CD/DVD combination on October 21st. With appearances from Allen Toussaint, Anders Osborne, Bill Kreutzmann, Bruce Springsteen, Charles Neville, Aaron Neville, George Porter Jr., Jason Isbell, Irma Thomas, John Fogerty, Jimmie Vaughan, Mavis Staples, Terence Blanchard, Widespread Panic, Zigaboo Modeliste and more, this was truly an all-star celebration.Among the many performers of the night was guitarist Warren Haynes, who paid tribute to Dr. John with a cover of his 2012 song “You Lie.” Says Haynes about the track, “For an artist of that caliber to still be putting out timeless music is pretty incredible.” The song certainly holds a candle to Dr. John’s famed body of work, as you can see in the brand new video that premiered today on Ultimate Classic Rock.You can find more information about the Dr. John tribute album/DVD release on Amazon.The Musical Mojo Of Dr. John: A Celebration Of Mac & His Music TracklistingDisc 1Right Place Wrong Time – Dr. John and Bruce Springsteen (4:30)Blow Wind Blow – Jason Isbell (3:47)My Indian Red – Cyril Neville (3:32)Somebody Changed the Lock – Anders Osborne and Bill Kreutzmann (3:11)Please Send Me Someone to Love – Dr. John, Aaron Neville and Charles Neville (6:04)Junko Partner – George Porter Jr. and Zigaboo Modeliste (5:14)Since I Fell for You – Irma Thomas (3:49)Stack-A-Lee – Tab Benoit (4:13)Life – Allen Toussaint (3:09)Street People – Shannon McNally (3:32)Goodnight Irene – Dave Malone (5:54)Big Chief – Big Chief Monk Boudreaux (5:23)Disc 2Familiar Reality – Widespread Panic (9:45)You Lie – Warren Haynes (6:34)Traveling Mood – Chuck Leavell (3:53)Back by the River – Ryan Bingham (4:29)Let’s Make a Better World – John Boutté (2:46)Lay My Burden Down – Mavis Staples (5:59)New Orleans – John Fogerty (3:43)Come Rain or Come Shine – Dr. John and Terence Blanchard (6:07)I Walk on Guilded Splinters – Dr. John and Sarah Morrow (7:02)Such a Night – Dr. John and Sarah Morrow (8:27)Blue-Ray/DVDDr. John Interview (Opening Sequence)Right Place Wrong Time – Dr. John and Bruce SpringsteenBlow Wind Blow – Jason IsbellMy Indian Red – Cyril NevilleSomebody Changed the Lock – Anders Osborne and Bill KreutzmannPlease Send Me Someone to Love – Dr. John, Aaron Neville and Charles NevilleJunko Partner – George Porter Jr. and Zigaboo ModelisteSince I Fell for You – Irma ThomasStack-A-Lee – Tab BenoitStreet People – Shannon McNallyGoodnight Irene – Dave MaloneBig Chief – Big Chief Monk BoudreauxDr. John InterviewFamiliar Reality – Widespread PanicYou Lie – Warren HaynesBack by the River – Ryan BinghamLet’s Make a Better World – John BouttéLay My Burden Down – Mavis StaplesNew Orleans – John FogertyCome Rain or Come Shine – Dr. John and Terence BlanchardI Walk on Guilded Splinters – Dr. John and Sarah MorrowSuch a Night – Dr. John and Sarah MorrowBonusLife – Allen ToussaintTraveling Mood – Chuck Leavelllast_img read more

‘A signing of this calibre is exactly what Spurs need’ – deal close as stats expert assess signing-in-the-making

first_img Tottenham transfer target Toby Alderweireld (right) Running the rule over Toby Alderweireld, assesses his suitability for Spurs. For more Tottenham stats, check out…It’s a transfer that performed many U-turns over the weekend, but it finally appears to be nearing a conclusion.No, this news isn’t regarding David De Gea and his anticipated move to Real Madrid, nor does it relate to Morgan Schneiderlin, who is tipped to leave Southampton this summer, though it does concern the latter’s team-mate last season.Toby Alderweireld is currently locked in the middle of a transfer tug of war between Tottenham and Southampton. An administrative error by Atletico Madrid means Saints, where the player was on loan for the 2014/15 campaign, feel they are entitled to the permanent signing of the Belgium international for a cut-price £6.8m fee and their continued pursuit of the defender comes as little shock to those associated with the club.Unsurprisingly, the club are desperate to secure his services, so much so that should the player move to another team this summer, they are prepared to take legal action against Atletico after the Spanish club failed to cancel Alderweireld’s buy-out clause in time.Southampton believe they have a contract with Atletico that makes Alderweireld’s season-long loan permanent for £6.8m unless they are paid around £1.5m to cancel that agreement. They may be forced to take this route, with Spurs seemingly heading the queue in the race to secure the defender’s services.In his first Premier League campaign, Alderweireld gained a respectable rating of 7.07 and formed part of a defence that was among the tightest in England’s top tier last term.Only Chelsea, with 32, shipped fewer goals in the Premier League last season than Saints’ 33, in what was also an impressive debut campaign at St Mary’s for manager Ronald Koeman.The Dutchman secured the services of Alderweireld initially on loan last summer and he was impressive alongside Jose Fonte at the heart of the back line. Indeed, Southampton’s goal difference was a respectable +21 in the 26 league games the centre-back started and that figure dropped to zero in the 12 games he did not.Understandably impressed with Alderweireld in his debut season in England, Mauricio Pochettino has identified the Belgian as the ideal player to solidify his back line.Spurs shipped a whopping 53 league goals last season, one of the worst returns in England’s top division. As expected, Pochettino has moved to strengthen accordingly this summer, securing the services of Kevin Wimmer and Kieran Trippier from Cologne and Burnley respectively.The Argentine is now hopeful a deal to take Alderweireld to White Hart Lane can be completed sooner rather than later as pre-season preparations get underway.The Belgian suits the demands of Pochettino, with his pass success rate standing at 80.2 per cent, a respectable return given his average number of passes per game (42.6).Clearly capable of playing the ball out of defence, he matches Spurs’ possession football and short passing style of play, a strength of theirs statistically calculated on Saints player averaged more clearances per league game than Alderweireld’s 5.5 last season, highlighting his ability to be in the right place at the right time to clear any danger.With Spurs hoping to secure a top four finish next season, a player of Alderweireld’s calibre is exactly what they need in their quest to guarantee a place in the 2016/17 Champions League.Defence was understandably the first port of call for Pochettino to strengthen this summer, as highlighted by Spurs’ acquisitions so far, and Alderweireld could be considered to be the final piece of the puzzle needed to complete the north London side’s back line.For more stats on Southampton and Tottenham target Toby Alderweireld, click here to view his player page 1last_img read more
