Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.

If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.

Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.

Description


Throughout his six-decade long career, Dr. John embodied a near-mythic multitude of musical identities: Global Ambassador of New Orleans funk and jazz and R&B, visionary bluesman, rock and roll innovator, and a massively revered high priest of psychedelic voodoo. 

Things Happen That Way, his final studio album, adds another dimension to his musicality: a lifelong affinity for country and western. It's a glorious farewell from one of the most essential figures in music history.

Limited to 500 copies, the VMP exclusive edition of Dr. John's Things Happen That Way is pressed on 1LP Storyville Red vinyl at Third Man Pressing and will arrive in a single direct-to-board, foil stamped and numbered jacket.
