Editorial Reviews

Their third LP found the Meters stretching out and putting more emphasis on vocals, but never at the expense of that hypnotic groove. Funky jams like Chicken Strut; Same Old Thing and The Handclapping Song , are joined by covers of Witchita Lineman; Ride Your Pony and Darling, Darling, Darling with Art Neville taking lead vocals. The complete 1970 Josie release plus two unreleased bonus tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keep on struttin' !!! September 26, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the greater Meters recordings. It was released in 1970. Absolutely dirty - exactly the way it should be! It's the third and last Meters album to feature that really raw, dirty, early seventies sound (distant drumkit, distorted hammond, picky guitar in your left ear and a fat P-bass right in your face).
There's constant groove throughout this well organized but JAMMIN' album. A suitable amount of vocal tracks are included. The Glen Campbell cover "Wichita Lineman" (written by Jimmy Webb) was the first vocal ballad to be released by The Meters; that and the Roquel Davis cover gumboesque "Darling Darling Darling" are good variations from the rest of the material.
Two bonus tracks included! No disappointments what so ever! Yera phool notta git it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Make mine FUNKY!! August 15, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Absolutely timeless stuff. Sounds as good today as when it was new, maybe even better. Todays jam bands could learn a thing or three from these early Meters records. In fact, nobody has even come close to capturing their sound decades later.Chicken Strut, Ride Your Pony and Funky Meters Soul are highlights on a cd full of them, but I admit to buying this particular disc for an awesome version of Wichita Lineman (!). If you're reading this, do your bad self a favor and buy this cd or any of the Meters other great sets. Money well spent.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Meters' Hat Trick July 20, 2006
Format:Audio CD
The Meters' "Struttin'" (released June 1970) was their third album, and another classic for the Josie label. Recorded, like their debut, at Cosimo Matassa's New Orleans studio (the amazing second album, 1969's "Look-Ka Py Py" was made at La Fevre Studios in Atlanta the previous summer), it is both of a piece with its two predecessors and an indication of their ongoing evolution.
The quartet's seminal Josie recordings utterly revitalized their hometown's music scene - of the eleven singles issued on Josie during three prolific years, beginning with 'Sophisticated Cissy'in November 1968 and continuing until the label went bankrupt in late 1971, ten were national hits. And the city's indigenous rhythmic identity - emphasisizing a laconic sense of syncopation rooted in a century of musical history and cultural cross-pollination, was reconfigured and reinvigorated by the Meters, who posessed individual virtuosity and the collective musical telepathy that makes great bands more than the sum of their parts. After decades during which the Crescent City made its mark on the national conciousness, as jazz, r&b, soul, and rock 'n' roll records broke out of the region and climbed the national charts, The Metres emrged during a post-Motown/post-British Invasion lull, quickly established themselves as central in the evolution of soul into funk. "Sturttin'" itself has remarkable variety within a seemingly restrictive framework. On "The Meters", 'singing' was restricted to the grunt that opens the very first song. The hit 'Look-Ka Py Py' opened the second album, and offered a bit more, as the band, led by Joseph Modeliste, 'sang' variations of the title phrase (inspired by the sounds emitted by their car's engine on the trip to Atlanta) as pure rhythm.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive synonym to 'Funk' is 'The Meters'!!! April 7, 2010
Format:Audio CD
There is funk, and there is Funk. This here is of course the latter! Hey, some just got it to give...
So stacked with soulful, tasteful, delicate melodies, intricately woven to create a breathing continuum of FUNK that one just needs to play replay and replay again in order to bask in the glory of this sound. Unbelivably creative, unforced and pure, just laying it on in layers! it's amazing that the tracks are comprised of several instruments, and far from the multi-tracking that has become standard routine, because it is so full. reminds me of a musical trio (i.e. The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Cream, The Police, Stevie Ray Vaughn) where each musician - and his part - are so dynamic and could easily stand on their own, that put together the parts are sufficiently impressive and enticing so as to leave upon the listener the impression that he is listening to many more musicians playing at once. i could easily go on, but i'll stop here. This is the distinct New Orleans Crescent City Sound, which rivaled the Chicago sound, the Memphis Sound, the Philly Sound, and we are lucky to have these recordings available to us in crystal clear quality. Sounds as good now as it has ever sounded!
