Exact repro reissue, manufactured by Rhino. Originally released on ATCO in 1974. "On Desitively Bonnaroo, Dr. John has refined his art, advanced it moderately, and created another entertaining LP. His music now breaks into two clear styles: riffs (up-tempo vehicles on which he employs a variety of R&B rhythms) and songs (ballads and medium-paced tunes that allow him a greater emotional range. The riffs give him a chance to invoke his mastery of the idiomatic lyric, his folk-sense of humor, and his ominous and mysterious presence. When the tunes are too melodically repetitive, as on 'Quitters Never Win,' then even the excellence of Allen Toussaint's arrangement and production, as well as the playing of his New Orleans sessionmen, cannot sustain interest. But 'What Comes Around (Goes Around)' has an interesting chord progression, some of the Doctor's most pointed lyrics, great bass by George Porter, Jr., as well as its extraordinary rhythm track. '(Everybody Wanna Get Rich) Rite Away' works because it's funny, and 'Desitively Bonnaroo' because of its intensity -- it sounds like a continuation of 'Right Place, Wrong Time.'"" -- Rolling Stone
