The Meters – Samples Volume 1

The Meters are one of those groups that turned me into a compulsive collector of late 60s/early-to-mid 70s soul-funk and jazz-funk. After hearing “Cissy Strut” for the first time, I was hooked, and I made it a point to track down everything in their instrumental discography. I’ll be compiling at least six volumes worth of Meters samples over the course of the next month, so check back on a regular basis.

    The first time I heard the Meters was the start of my digging hobby. Around 89-90, my Pops was listening to some music and all of a sudden I heard the drum break from Big Daddy Kane. Turns out he had the Meters first album, mint condition, sitting in the attic for years I always over looked it. As a young drummer and budding break fiend, Zig's simple yet complex drum patterns were mind bending. Amazing stuff.
