In the Right Place is the sixth album by New Orleans R&B artist Dr. John. The album was originally released on Atco Records in 1973 and became the biggest selling album of Dr. John's career. The song "Such a Night" was also performed as part of The Band's The Last Waltz concert, made famous by Martin Scorsese's film. The song also appears in the music video of 3000 Miles to Graceland.
John finally struck paydirt here and was certainly In the Right Place. With the hit single "Right Place Wrong Time" bounding up the charts, this fine collection saw many unaware listeners being initiated into New Orleans-style rock. Also including Allen Toussaint's "Life," and a funky little number entitled "Traveling Mood," which shows off the good doctor's fine piano styling, and with able help from the Meters as backup group, In the Right Place is still a fine collection to own.

Right Place, Wrong Time" opens the similarly titled LP In the Right Place, Rebennack's sixth album under the Dr. John persona. Whereas Dr. John's previous album, 1972's Dr. John's Gumbo had paired him with producer Jerry Wexler in an affectionate tribute to classic New Orleans rhythm and blues compositions of the 1950s and '60s, "Right Place" enlisted the production talents of NOLA's own Allen Toussaint, in a far more contemporary setting.

He took the album on tour with a show resembling a bayou magic act, decking himself out in outlandish feathers, witch-doctor robes and headdresses. For a time the act also featured a man calling himself Prince Kiyama, who would bite the heads off live chickens onstage. Two follow-up albums to Gris-Gris – Babylon (1969) and Remedies (1970) – began to make him influential friends, including Eric Clapton and Mick Jagger, who both appeared on The Sun, Moon & Herbs (1971), and in 1973 he released the biggest selling album of his career, In the Right Place. Following the positive reaction to In the Right Place in 1973, his next album, Desitively Bonnaroo (1974), was much less successful and it proved to be his last album with Atco. He moved to United Artists for the live album Hollywood Be Thy Name (1975), which was also received unenthusiastically.
