The Meters: Paul's Mall, Boston

Joe McEwen, Rolling Stone, 4 November 1976

THE METERS may well be the finest performing American band. Without resorting to such modern pop trappings as smoke bombs and gyrating pianos, the Meters offer a continually challenging and sophisticated blend of classic New Orleans styles and modern funk, infusing the music with a contagious vitality not unlike the best soul bands of the '60s.
