As mentioned on reddit, the label has a funny misspelling: "The Night Stripper", instead of "The Night Tripper". Check it out!

I have this UK first and the mastering is odd. Female backing vocals and percussion sound distant - like fake stereo. Also have two tracks on a US Atco comp that sound so much fuller and punchier.

I can't vouch for other vinyl pressings, but this one sounds marvellous. I love it. That extraordinary atmosphere evoked by the near-perfect album cover comes through, well and truly.

I have a copy of this on normal black vinyl, not yellow. It has the usual mustard yellow ATCO label. I suspect the word 'yellow' in this listing summary means the label, in which case it should be in the notes not at the head where it implies yellow vinyl.

Sounds like Captain Beefheart visiting New Orleans. This is a fusion of many styles, it's psychedelic but not psychedelic rock, more like psychedelic soul-jazz, a fairly laid back trip.

This album should definitely have Psychedelic Rock listed under style.

Maybe you had to be there, at the tail-end of the sixties, to appreciate the effect this had in the UK on those who were tuned-in and dropped-out. From the moment the needle drops into "Gris-Gris Gumbo Ya Ya", you can smell the joss-sticks. The body slips into a Robert Crumb-like 'Mr. Natural' pose, as the good Doctor takes over with his hoo-doo magic and aural potions "that'll cure all ya's ills..."

"Gris-Gris" is a delicious gumbo of ritualistic melodies, pidgen-Cajun vocals, incantations, Zydeco instrumentation and eerie percussion. What, in later years, Rebennack (aka Dr. John) would term his "Funknology". If you haven't heard Dr. John, then "Gris Gris" is a good place to start, before leaping into the more up-tempo and funky "In The Right Place".

The seven tracks on "Gris-Gris" are all gems. The last, "I Walk On Guilded Splinters" (oft credited as 'Gilded') has been covered by a number of musicians, such as Marsha Hunt, Humble Pie, The Allman Brothers and Paul Weller. If you're looking for 1960's psychedelic magic and you're gonna stick a pin in an album to select, this one is pure voodoo...
