The Meters
"Cabbage Alley"

The Meters are a band that found me via a movie soundtrack. While enjoying a birth of interest in neo-soul music I heard a track from their album Struttin' which got me interested in finding more.

Alley is a bit more guitar-driven than any of the other Meters albums I've heard. But I really like it. I almost feel that this record is pre-dating a lot of work in hard-driven blues/funk that would be on the horizon in another thirty years.
