Synopsis

Album Description
By the time they released Fire On the Bayou in 1975, the Meters (now a quintet, with addition of Cyril Neville to the lineup) had graduated from regional cult heroes to internationally renowned recording act. In addition to playing on records by the likes of Paul McCartney, Dr. John, LaBelle and Robert Palmer, they were personally invited by the Rolling Stones to open their 1975 U.S. tour. The momentum helped Fire On the Bayou to become one of the Meters' most acclaimed and commercially successful albums. It remains a fan favorite, thanks to such gritty classic jams as "Talkin' 'bout New Orleans" and "They All Ask'd for You," which demonstrate the band's effortless instrumental expertise and organic rhythmic rapport. This expanded edition adds an extended alternate version of the album track "Running Fast."

CD Reviews

A real good one
William Jones | Rockville, MD USA | 08/30/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I think this album was recorded just before Rejuvenation, perhaps 1974. Love Slip Upon Ya is perhaps the greatest Meters song up to this point unreleased on CD. Several other classics, available on the Rhino 2 CD re-release (Funkify Your Life) are also here. As with all the Meters' albums in the '70s, it's all over the place. Funk, and more. Compared to Cabbage Alley and Rejuvenation, it's not quite as good. Still, this is one of the best examples of Funk music in the 70's."
Predictable? I think not Dorky Butt!

"Obviously Dorky Butt knows nothing about Music, this is a musical materpiece. The Meters are the kings of groove and feel good sounds. This is a testament to their versatility and originality. I recommend this to anyone who knows good music.
