Feel Like A King

Left to right: Art "Papa Funk" Neville, Zigaboo Modeliste, George Porter Jr. and Leo Nocentelli.

The Meters.

We've heard it before, but it's so worth hearing again...and again. Just be careful. Once you fall into that pocket, it ain't easy getting out.

(And if anybody has that instrumental version, as seen in the pic below, to ME!)

love this tune but i never heard this, was this written by the meters or is it a jon cleary original?

Sal Nunziato said...


It's a Meters' original, from one of the most essential R&B records ever recorded, "Rejuvenation."

Noam Sane said...

Good god. That is unreal. Need to hunt this you know what album I might find this on? Thanks Sal.

Sal Nunziato said...

The Meters- Rejuvenation.

Nice cut. Lately I've been lis'nin' a whole lot to The Meters' "Handclapping Song." Whew! Like someone wrote about them once, love this phrase, The Meters are almost impossibly funky.

I was fortunate enough to see the original lineup reunion at Jazzfest a few years ago, and then again on their very brief reunion tour at HOB in Chicago. These guys are still amazing. Thanks for posting. (P.S. I don't have the instrumental version of this, but if anyone digs it up for you, you HAVE to share with the rest of us!) Thanks.
