Meters - Kickback Kickback
Soul New - LP LP5081 Sundazed
Sealed, Out Of Print 2001 180gm Compilation. "Previously Unavailable '65-66 Demos.Not For One Minute Will You Mistake This Collection Of Unreleased Recordings As A Proper Album. It Isn't Just The Preponderance Of Covers, It's The Subtle Shifts In Production And Tone, Lending A General Unevenness To This Record, Even If It's Culled Just From 1975 And 1976 (Meaning They're Leftovers From Fire On The Bayou And Trick Bag). That Doesn't Mean It's A Bad Listen By Any Stretch, Since Even Ifkickback Is Second-Rate And Leftover Meters, They're Still An Incredibly Supple, Engaging Band That Can Take Such Bad Choice Of Material Like Neil Young's "Down By The River" And Turn It Into Something Listenable. Such Cover Choices As That, The Beatles' "Come Together," And Stephen Stills' "Love The One You're With" All Sound Intriguing, Particularly To The Record Geek That's This Album's Core Audience, But Apart From The Latter (And A Fine, Surprisingly Hard-Rocking Alternate Version Of "Honky Tonk Women"), These Kind Of Choices Play Better In Theory Than In Actuality. The Rest Of The Record May Not Have As Distinctive A Calling Card, But They're Better, Finding The Band Laying Back And Doing What They Do Best, Which Is Laying Down A Solid, Irresistible Groove. No, There's Not Much Here That's Essential, But It's Fine Second-Tier Stuff That Will Satisfy The Dedicated. And, Truth Be Told, Second-Tier Meters Still Sounds Pretty Good To The Unconverted, Too." -Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG... more details

Meters - Look-Ka Py Py Look-Ka Py Py
Funk Used - LP 4011 Josie
Beautiful 1970 Original. A Superb Follow-Up To Their Self-Titled Album That Was Even Funkier Than Its Debut. When These Songs Aren't Busy Getting Basted By Art Neville's Succulent-Sounding Organ ("Pungee") Or Spiced Up By Guitarist Leo Nocentelli's Licks ("9 'Til 5"), The Rhythm Section Of Bassist George Porter, Jr. And Drummer Ziggy Modeliste Keeps The Stew Cooking With Plenty Of Bouncy Grooves ("Funky Miracle.") The Best Example Of The Meters' Ability To Reside Squarely In The Pocket Is The Infectious Title Track, Which Is Inspired By A Misfiring Auto Engine And Dominated By Modeliste's Whip-Smart Time Keeping. Other Notable Juicy Moments Include The Percolating "Little Old Money Maker" And The Previously Unreleased Soul Nugget "Borro." By Far The Oddest Track On LOOK-KA PY PY Is A Cover Of "Oh, Calcutta!" That Sounds More Suited For A Memphis After-Hours Club Than The Broadway Stage.... more details
 
Meters - New Directions New Directions
Funk Used - LP BS 3042 Warner
Beautiful 1977 Burbank Street Scene Label Original. Pink Promo Sticker On Front Cover. “The Title Of The Meters' Final Album Is Hopeful, And New Directions Does Indeed Represent If Not A New Direction, At Least A Shift From The Disco Dead End Of Trick Bag. From The Second "No More Okey Doke" Kicks Off The Record, It's Clear That The Meters Are Gritty Again, Kicking Out Some Really Funky Grooves -- Maybe Not As Dirty As Their Josie Recordings, Maybe A Little Cleaned Up, But Still Pretty Funky. The Slower Numbers Betray Their Era, But In A Pleasing Way, Something That's Also True Of Generic Numbers Like "My Name Up In Lights," Which May Have Too Much Talk-Box Guitar, But Still Grooves Effectively. That May Not Be A New Direction, Per Se, But It Is A Welcome Change-Up After The Dud Trick Bag.” Stephen Thomas Erlewine, AMG.... more details
