"Before they released this self-titled first album in 1969 on the Josie label, the four New Orleans musicians who comprised the Meters had spent several years serving as producer Allen Toussaint's house band and backing the likes of Lee Dorsey, Chris Kenner, Earl King and Betty Harris. By the time they struck out on their own, keyboardist Art Neville, guitarist Leo Nocentelli, bassist George Porter Jr. and drummer Zigaboo Modeliste were a well-oiled machine whose earthy grooves and intricate rhythms set a standard for Crescent City funk that's never been matched. This classic debut, produced by Allen Toussaint, features the Meters' instrumental hits 'Cissy Strut' and 'Sophisticated Sissy,' and covers of tunes by Sly Stone, Burt Bacharach and the Classics IV."
