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.
