The Meters: New Directions

Cliff White, New Musical Express, 27 August 1977

SINCE THIS album was recorded it's reported that The Meters have succumbed to the clash of personalities and aspirations that's dogged their career for several years. The two Neville brothers, Cyril and founder-member Art, apparently opted to stand by New Orleans, where they've formed a new group with third brother Aaron; the others presumably migrated to San Francisco, where these tracks were cut under the supervision of David Rubinson & Friends, Inc.
