Tip of the hat - Dr John
 
Dear John...

Your work on "Anutha Zone" alone puts you in my fave producers category. The Nawlins/Lanois sound is highly mystified yet you have nailed it - and then some.... you also bridged the gap beween UK v US sound with soul to boot, so congrats from an admirier from afar. Your treatments are instinctive and enhance the music in a way that even some artists would fail to appreciate. Raising a glass as I speak. Thanks for that.

Hey Larrabee
Thanks a lot for kind comments. I was honoured to work with Mac and proud of record and had great time doing it and when Dr John and band came to tour UK I got on the bus and just had to go with them!

I also love the sound of this album, and I think it's the good doctors finest.
My question is, in the album artwork there is a picture of Dr John singing into what seems to be an SM58. Is that what is used and heard on the album? If it's so then I'm deeply impressed with the sound you guys have gotten out of it.
Any other details and stories on the making of Anutha Zone would be greatly appriciated!
