The Meters - The Meters

Regular price $ 28.00

The Meters is the debut studio album by the American funk group The Meters. It was released in May 1969 and is the first of eight albums by the band. The band's early works were developed through improvisation.[1] Band members had spent most of the 1960s performing together in nightclubs of New Orleans. They had a fluid musical style that included elements of R&B, rock and jazz.

The first track "Cissy Strut" was the band's opening song during their residency at the Ivanhoe night club in late 1960s. The original melody was introduced by Leo Nocentelli. At the time the song did not have a name and the band's name was Art Neville and the Neville Sounds. The song was recorded at the Cosimo Studios. It was first released as a single and sold 200,000 copies in two weeks. Its commercial success became an impetus for the band's name change and subsequent recording career.
