Fans looking to procure a little time with the Doctor could do a lot worse than this 1997 budget compilation from Rhino Flashback. "Right Place Wrong Time," "Tipitina," and "Iko Iko" are classic Dr. John tunes, but there's a lot missing like "Junko Partner," "Loop Garoo," and "I Walk on Guilded Splinters." Longtime fans or anybody with an extra buck or two would be better off with Rhino's Very Best of Dr. John or its fully loaded 2006 cousin, the two-disc Definitive Pop Collection, both of which are priced fro the budget conscious. ~ James Christopher Monger
