The Meters: Look-Ka Py Py/Jungle Man, Live 1974

I’ve been on a huge Meters kick lately. All of George Porter, Jr.’s bass lines groove like crazy. They’re simple and to the point, which is perfect.

Here’s a great clip of The Meters live in 1974 on Dr. John’s “New Orleans Swamp.” The group tears into “Look-ka Py Py” before a cool transition into the slower, thicker “Jungle Man”.

Grab your bass, because you’re going to want to jam along with these.

How the hell can that audience just be sitting there stone still? I don’t even see a head bobbing. Did they give them all horse tranquelizers on the way in?
