Anutha Zone is the twenty-fourth album by New Orleans R&B artist Dr. John, originally released in 1998 by Parlophone Records.

Dr. John a.k.a the night tripper is a singer, songwriter, voice actor, pianist, and guitarist, whose music combines Blues, Pop, Jazz, Zydeco, Boogie Woogie and Rock & Roll.

Active as a session musician since the late 1950s, he gained a cult following in the late 1960's following the release of his album Gris-Gris and his appearance at the Bath Festival of Blues and Progressive music. He performed a wildly theatrical stage show inspired by medicine shows, Mardi Gras costumes and voodoo ceremonies. This eventually resulted in his signature 'voodoo' music style.

Long before Dr. John emerged as the king of good-times New Orleans grooves, he had crafted a far spookier persona. As Dr. John the Night Tripper on his 1968 debut album, Gris-Gris, he was an emissary from a demimonde of dank Louisiana swamps, mysterious spells and voodoo chicanery.

Dr. John had spent so much time turning out perfectly enjoyable albums that it may be easy to forget the spooky voodoo vibes of his earliest, arguably best, records. He may have forgotten it himself, too, but there was a whole generation of British musicians who remembered the haunted vibe lurking in Gumbo and Gris-Gris.

On Anutha Zone, Dr. John attempts to summon the magic of that earlier era through a surprising collaboration with a host of contemporary British alchemists. On "John Gris" and "Hello God", Spiritualized provide atmospheric settings for the good doctor's cosmological musings.

Paul Weller, who enjoyed a 1996 hit in England with a cover of Dr. John's "I Walk On Gilded Splinters", returns the favour by providing guitar and vocal assistance on "Party Hellfire" and "I Don't Wanna Know About Evil".

Members of Supergrass join the fun on "Voices In My Head". Meanwhile, drummer Clive Deamer of Portishead and keyboardist Martin Duffy of Primal Scream leave trip-hop behind to romp on the album-closing "Sweet Home New Orleans".

The perfect host, Dr. John makes his guests absolutely at home. If Anutha Zone produces no stunning breakthroughs, it also never feels at all contrived. For the most part, the youngsters check the doctor's tendency to lapse into shtick, while his innate musicality and larger-than-life personality focus their performances. 

Anutha Zone is a mojo hand across the generational divide, a psychedelic night journey that's fun for the whole family.

Check out the tracks: “Anutha Zone”; “The Olive Tree” and “The Stroke”.

This LP record is a Music On Vinyl 2016 reissue on 180 gram audiophile vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with a printed insert, pressed in Europe.
