Meters - Cabbage Alley

by The Meters


The 4th Meters album marked their departure from Josie Records and was released on the Reprise label in 1972. Cabbage Alley once again proved that The Meters were one of the finest, rawest Funk groups around. 

Hailing from the soggy streets of New Orleans, the Meters essentially invented the second line groove, influencing Funk music like no other artist (OK, aside from a singer by the name of James Brown). These cats are essentially one unified rhythm section, with expertly timed drum breaks, bass driven grooves, bluesy chicken scratch guitars and Southern singalong choruses.
