The Meters' ex-guitarist turns in a sub-par performance

"Anyone who is a fan of funk music recognizes that The Meters, James Brown, Funkadelic, and Sly Stone are essential listening. The Meters' guitarist, Leo Nocentelli, was dynamite with the Meters. His riffs on "Fire on the Bayou", "People Say", and all the great late sixties funk instrumentals were innovative and inspiring. This recording includes many of those famous tunes, including the aforementioned and "Africa", "Hey Pocky Way", and "Cissy Strut". The Meters' drummer, the super-funky Zigaboo Modeliste, plays on this live recording as well, making it a very attractive purchase. Don't be fooled. The playing is flat, the singing is awful, and the other musicians are NOT The Meters. The other, Non-Meters tunes are pretty inconsequential. Unless you have money to burn and are REALLY curious, don't waste your time."
