They doin' it in every town...

One of the finest slabs of funk to ever come out of New Orleans. This side's wrapped so tight that, in my opinion, they should have given Warren Lee credit for 'chaotic influence' rather than singing.

In Jeff Hannusch's book, "The Soul Of New Orleans", Lee say's how he thinks local DJ Larry McKinley sat on the record....how it took money to get a record played on the radio in those days. Need I say that it went nowhere commercially?

So, what ya got here is the Meters layin' it down, thick as mud, with Allen Toussaint at the board doin' his best to keep his shoes clean.

Always a good thang.
