1967


atlanticThe fallout from Dover's fall continues when Wardell Quezergue takes King Floyd and Jean Knight to record at Malaco in Jackson, Mississippi, and they promptly land mammoth respective hits with Groove Me (Chimneyville) in 1970, and Mr. Big Stuff (Stax) in 1971.

clematisIn 1973, Toussaint and Sehorn set up the Sea-Saint studios and proceed to mop up most of the recording business in New Orleans. Even Matassa would work for them for a while after Jazz City closes in 1977.

By now, the music business is veering away from the single to the LP, with the major labels in the ascendancy with their own distribution systems. Dr. John does well with the Gumbo (1972) and In The Right Place (1973) albums for Atco, as do The Meters with Fire on the Bayou (Reprise 1975). Allen Toussaint starts recording creditably as an artist for Warner Bros., while Professor Longhair enjoys a revival.

Another page in New Orleans music history is about to be written but the classic R&B and soul era has come to an end.
