In the Right Place is the sixth album by New Orleans R&B artist Dr. John. The album was originally released on Atco Records in 1973 and became the biggest selling album of Dr. John's career. The song "Such a Night" was also performed as part of The Band's The Last Waltz concert, made famous by Martin Scorsese's film. The song also appears in the music video of 3000 Miles to Graceland.

John finally struck paydirt here and was certainly In the Right Place. With the hit single "Right Place Wrong Time" bounding up the charts, this fine collection saw many unaware listeners being initiated into New Orleans-style rock. Also including Allen Toussaint's "Life," and a funky little number entitled "Traveling Mood," which shows off the good doctor's fine piano styling, and with able help from the Meters as backup group, In the Right Place is still a fine collection to own.

Right Place, Wrong Time" opens the similarly titled LP In the Right Place, Rebennack's sixth album under the Dr. John persona. Whereas Dr. John's previous album, 1972's Dr. John's Gumbo had paired him with producer Jerry Wexler in an affectionate tribute to classic New Orleans rhythm and blues compositions of the 1950s and '60s, "Right Place" enlisted the production talents of NOLA's own Allen Toussaint, in a far more contemporary setting.

Right Place Wrong Time (1973). Working with Allen Toussaint in 1973 meant that Dr. John got the producer’s young and rising house band, the Meters. Also from the In the Right Place album, with the Meters supporting, Such a Night is still funky but sweet, a bit of a Toussaint signature - and also a look at Dr. John’s love for moon-and-June pop songwriting, with throwback lines like sweet confusion under the moonlight.

John played on records for world famous artists such as Aretha Franklin, Van Morrison, and the Rolling Stones. Creating his own brand of "voodoo" music fusing New Orleans R&B;, rock and Mardi Graz Dr. John was renowned for wildly theatrical stage show inspired by medicine shows, Mardi Gras costumes and voodoo ceremonies. In the Right Place was the biggest selling album of his career, containing his most popular Top 20 hit songs "Right Place Wrong Time" and "Such a Night" which appears in the music video of 3000 Miles to Graceland and the Band's 'The Last Waltz' concert.

Sorryyy
This is in my opinion Dr John's magnum opus. The Meters backing & Allen Toussaint playing & producing, this album is New Orleans funk at its very best. Most of us have heard the killer lead off track "Right Place Wrong Time" as it's become an iconic piece of American culture appearing in many films and commercials. The other great hit from this album "Such a Night" has been featured almost as much in film. Both are great songs with good lyrics but this album holds much more because the whole thing is good! There's a nice mixture of moods. Another stand out track is Allen Toussaint's "Life" which has been covered by everyone from Blood Sweat and Tears to pianist James Booker. This entire album grooves really hard do to the awesome Meters rhythm section of drummer Joe "Zigaboo" Modeliste and bassist George Porter. They have signature parts laid out for every tune. If I was curious about where to start with Dr John's music this is where I'd wanna start.
