This collection comes in a cardboard slipcase that contains each of the five discs in its own individual cardboard sleeve, like a mini vinyl LP sleeve. This is definitely a budget repackaging of back catalog items, with no extra tracks, booklets or other add-ons, but if you're a fan it's a treasure trove. All The Meters' albums for Warner/Reprise, including "Fire on the Bayou", their best known and biggest seller. Though this is a budget reissue, these discs sound as good as they ever have, without the heavy-handed compression and EQ that have become so common with recent "remasters". The full dynamic range and tonal balance remain unmolested. Thanks to Rhino for respecting the music. And what music it is; If you know The Meters, you know you want this in your collection. If not, give 'em a listen…and then you'll want this in your collection.

By the time they released Fire On the Bayou in 1975, the Meters (now a quintet, with addition of Cyril Neville to the lineup) had graduated from regional cult heroes to internationally renowned recording act. In addition to playing on records by the likes of Paul McCartney, Dr. John, LaBelle and Robert Palmer, they were personally invited by the Rolling Stones to open their 1975 U.S. tour. The momentum helped Fire On the Bayou to become one of the Meters' most acclaimed and commercially successful albums. It remains a fan favorite, thanks to such gritty classic jams as "Talkin' 'bout New Orleans" and "They All Ask'd for You," which demonstrate the band's effortless instrumental expertise and organic rhythmic rapport. This remastered expanded edition contains five bonus tracks.

In 2003, the album was ranked #138 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. The somewhat garish front cover artwork features a photograph of a seemingly footloose woman sitting on a couch alongside several record albums strewn about her living room, such as Allen Toussaint's 1972 Life, Love and Faith as well as the Meters' own previous Reprise LP Cabbage Alley.

Publisher: Methuen & Co | 1963 | ISBN: n/a | English | PDF | 165 pages | 9.8 Mb

This text presents a clear and simple outline of Greek and Latin meters in order that the verse of the Greeks and Romans may be read as poetry. Although the Greek and Latin components are conceived as essentially independent, the arrangements of each section confirm in such a way as to facilitate the use of the two in conjunction. No comparable volume exists in English.
