"Rejuvenation" is the fifth studio album by the New Orleans funk group The Meters, released in 1974. 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.

The Meters made their anthemic funk cuts on Josie in the late '60s. The New Orleans crew backed Fats Domino, Lee Dorsey, and Aaron Neville before they started jamming on their own in the late '60s. Island issued this anthology of Josie material in the mid-'70s. It came out in the US too. Rounder has since reissued some of this material.

The Meters defined New Orleans funk, not only on their own recordings, but also as the backing band for numerous artists, including many produced by Allen Toussaint. Where the funk of Sly Stone and James Brown was wild, careening, and determinedly urban, The Meters were down-home and earthy. Nearly all of their own recordings were instrumentals, putting the emphasis on the organic and complex rhythms. The syncopated, layered percussion intertwined with the gritty grooves of the guitar and organ, creating a distinctive sound that earned a small, devoted cult during the '70s, including musicians like Paul McCartney and Robert Palmer, both of whom used the group as backing band for recording.

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.
