Babylon is the second album by the American singer-songwriter Dr. John, who also contributed to thousands of other musicians recordings. Just shortly after the ground-breaking debut album Gris-Gris he
created another wonderful record, full of his voodoo psychedelia and
mysterious R&B melodies. It's haunting and freaky, but also an
attempt by the band to say something about the times during which this
album was recorded. The Vietnam war and the assassinations of Bobby
Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr. all had an impact on the unusual
musical time signatures and the lyrics about the end of the world. Dr. John passed away on June 6, 2019, due to a heart attack, 8 years before he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
