The Meters: Look-Ka Py Py; Good Old Funky Music (both Rounder)

Ted Drozdowski, Rolling Stone, 1 November 1990

SOUL MUSIC has a history of great instrumentals: 'Green Onions', 'Soul Serenade', 'Last Night' — and virtually every early independent-label recording by the Meters. Led by keyboardist Art Neville, the quartet was the reigning New Orleans session team from the mid-Sixties until its breakup in 1977.
