"For the past few years, I've dreamt that this would make it onto CD one day. That day came earlier this year!!
Where else can you hear Allen Toussaint, The Meters and Mr King together? From the 'fonk' of the title track (split into two parts, and also with the rhythm track re-used for 'Am I Your Dog'), the humourous 'Medieval Days' to the New Orleans R&B ballads ('Mother's Love'), there's a nice mix here.
There are those Meters riffs in there (which also appeared on Dr John's In the Right Place album), and Allen Toussaint's guiding hand here: some of the material is clearly his ('Some People', 'Love Look Out for Me') - who else writes such quirky hornlines?!?!)
If only all of the recording details hadn't gone astray! The Meters are on most tracks, but there are other musicians in here. Who are they, and where and when were they recorded?
Does it matter? This is great!"

"I never review CDs, but this one is excellent. Horns, The Meter, Allen Toussaint bring out the best of the New Orleans sound!"
