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

O’Neill backs forwards to win games

first_img O’Neill said: “International football is a wee bit like that these days, teams not running away with matches much. “It would be nice to be hard to beat because you feel you would have enough ability to create something. “[Aiden] McGeady in the final third has terrific feet and is a genuine danger. His own attacking instinct, he wants to think he can dribble himself out of any position on the park.” Poland represented a significant step up in class after Latvia, but Ireland took the game to them in the early stages and might even have gone ahead when defender Stephen Kelly saw a 21st-minute header loop up off the ground and over the bar. But the Poles stepped up a gear as the game wore on and exerted sustained pressure, although keeper David Forde did not have a save of note to make. O’Neill said: “That’s true, and I should look at that as a positive. The level of opposition was not in question. Poland are a wee bit unlucky not to be involved in play-off games. “It was tough and was always going to be. I made seven or eight changes, getting players into the fold and feeling they are part of it.” The manager, his assistant Roy Keane and their players flew back to Dublin in optimistic mood after a more than satisfactory first get-together, although they will not reconvene until March next year ahead of a home friendly against Serbia. Press Association That is something to which O’Neill, who has spent the past 23 years working day-to-day in club management, will have to get used in between international breaks. He said: “We will get back in the early hours and we are going to a hotel, and I won’t see them for some time. “I’ll have withdrawal symptoms – I’m not so sure it will be the same for the players. “I might be on the phone to them, but I’m not sure they are looking forward to that.” Martin O’Neill is confident Ireland have the firepower to win games if they continue to be hard to beat. The 61-year-old saw his team fight its way to a 0-0 friendly draw in Poland four days after launching his reign with an impressive 3-0 victory over Latvia. Where flowing football was the order of the day against the Latvians, Ireland had to show their once traditional grit at the INEA Stadium in Poznan to keep Robert Lewandowski and his team-mates at bay, and that was a source of contentment for their manager. last_img read more
