The Meters - Struttin’ [Limited Edition Blue Jay Vinyl LP]
Similar in sound to Look-Ka Py Py, Struttin' distinguished itself with its increased emphasis on Art Neville‘s vocal stylings. (As opposed to the call-and-response shouted choruses from previous albums.)
The album included the R&B Singles hit “Chicken Strut”, soulful covers of Lee Dorsey, Ty Hunter, and even Jimmy Webb, and directed the group into a more expansive sound than before, rendering one of the most organic sounds in their discography.
Classic samples abound across Struttin’ with everyone from Dilla to A Tribe Called Quest to Whitney Houston, has had their way with Handclapping Song.
