This music makes me think of lawlessness. Not lawlessness in terms of anarchy, crime, or violence. Lawlessness of the spirit. A plastic cup of alcohol, arms loosely held around someone’s waist and swaying down the middle of the street. A day of sanctioned no rules, a day when you’re supposed to rip up the rules and throw them out. I’m writing this from work in New York, on Mardi Gras day when everybody at home is not at work and I can’t line up my rental car for when I come in town in a few days because everyone is either chasing a plastic cup or drinking out of a plastic cup or avoiding plastic cups… but the one thing they aren’t doing is working. Because laws are about somebody else… and lawlessness is all about you. What do you want to do today? Do what you wanna!

Actually i think, that the whole Wild Tchoupitoulas Record with the Meters, the Nevilles and “Naomi” stands well up to the Turbington Magnolias.

I did see the Magnolias in Rennes some 20 Years ago, rockin the House for more then 2 Hours partly with the help of the Rebirth Brass Band.
The Rounder Stuff sound rather more like Field-Recordings. No match to the Concert or the “Zigaboo” Meter-Modulations.

Thank you for this lesson. Rich and deeply moving unknown history. This non-New Orleanian thanks you.
