Editorial Reviews

The New Orleans Mardi Gras "Indian Tribe" the Wild Magnolias issued a critically acclaimed LP for Polydor in 1974. Bo Dollis, Monk Boudreaux, June Johnson, Jr., Crip Adams, Tobias Johnson, Bubba Scott, and James Smothers brought the rich, fervent flavor of New Orleans to vinyl, backed by Willie Tee's band. A second LP They Call Us Wild was released in Europe a year later but not in the US.
The present 2CD set includes the music of the 2 LPs plus tracks never released before. Also embedded in CD #2 is a high resolution Acrobat PDF file that contains a sixty-eight pages booklet describing the historical context in which the New Orleans Indian tribes developed, detailed annotations regarding the recordings, and dozens of photographs.

Wilson "Willie Tee" Turbinton, his brother Earl, and their New Orleans Project band were the first to provide full musical backing to the Mardi Gras Indian street chants and thus expose this culture to the world. The rhythmic dexterity behind these tunes is just stunning--and I'm especially fond of Earl's soaring soprano sax solo on "Smoke My Peace Pipe." This set contains the complete contents of "The Wild Magnolias" (1974) and "They Call Us Wild" (1975), with all bonus tracks from the 1993 CD release of the former. The 1994 CD release of "They Call Us Wild" was the first in the US--after almost 20 years! The newcomer to digital format is the single mix of "Smoke My Peace Pipe." Besides being shortened from over six minutes to 2:39, the single replaces the verse beginning with "There's nothin' like a real good high..." with more innocuous lyrics to make the tune more radio-friendly.

I have the Polydor discs, but this would be worth buying on CD for the booklet as described in the editorial review. Even so, you haven't seen Indian costumes until you've seen them in person. And on the subject of booklets--hey Amazon! When will you have digital booklets as iTunes already does?

Sadly, this work is now part of the Turbinton brothers' legacy. Earl passed away on August 3, 2007, followed by Wilson on September 11.

First of all, I must agree with everything StatMan89 said, but feel that I must add a few things
These two albums (contained here in a double-set under one title) are among the absolutely quintessential albums recorded in New Orleans long and storied musical history.
While The Wild Tchoupitoulas album, recorded shortly after the Wild Magnolias debut, gets much attention for both the contribution of the Neville Bros. and The Meters as backing band and the presence of the legendary Big Chief Jolley, The Wild Magnolias album is the first and is a powerful and bold musical statement that has probably never been matched, and has set the tone for Mardi Gras Indian music in New Orleans since 1973.
What I must add is that in addition to the Turbinton Brothers, two of the great Modern Jazz pioneers in New Orleans, the band includes percussionist Alfred "Uganda" Roberts, New Orleans guitar legend "Snooks" Eaglin, and, of course, the completely insane, totally off-the-hook vocal stylings of Big Chief Bo Dollis, a voice in New Orleans music that can never be replaced.
BUY THIS ALBUM! If you know what's good for you. It's "guaranteed to blow your mind".

If you want to funk, get this one. Will have you dancin' and funkin' all night. THe Wild Magnolias have to be the funkiest of the Mardi Gras tribes, with their two LP releases from the 70s. The title track is the strongest one here. This record is much more cohesive and listenable than their first, which was also some killer funk. This is New Orleans at its funkiest, with the excepetion of the Meters. Most of the tracks are very strong. Bo Dillis has a unique, husky voice that suites the grooves quite nicley. Other standout tracks are "Jumalaka-Boom" and "Firewater". Only 1 or 2 week tracks here, which is why I gave it 4 stars. This is a bit rawer than some of the Meters stuff, but still has amazingly tight bass lines, kickin'drums, slick yet rawnchy guitar, and keyboards that really drive the rythyms, especially on the title track....this cd is worth that song alone. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up.

I love New Orleans and love the Mardi Gras Indian tradition and the Wild Magnolias are probably the most famous example (but don't tell the other tribes that!) This albums marries that style with some tasty 70's funk. This disc is worth buying for "Smoke My Peace Pipe" alone, but their version of "Shoo-Fly" is great. They were rapping before it was called that _ Bo Dollis and Monk Boudreaux rule! This set contains both of their Barclay recordings - the second wasn't originally released in the states and is a bit slickly produced, but the first is essential.
If you make it to New Orleans, be sure and check out the Mardi Gras Indian "museum" in Treme.
