Hi Folks:

It has been brought to our attention recently by resident Nevilles expert Jon Tyler that The Meters "Look-Ka Py Py" album was cut outside of New Orleans, at Le Fevre Sound Studios in Atlanta.

The producers are still listed as Allen R. Toussaint and Marshall E. Sehorn, and it would be very interesting to try and find out how that might have come about...

We have left off the two hits culled from that album from the 'Non-Coded Chart Hits' page to reflect that:
"Dry Spell" #39 R&B - 11/1/69 and
"Look-Ka Py Py" #11 R&B - 12/6/69

It is possible, however, that, like many an LP in those days, the album was a collection of previously released singles, and that these were indeed cut at Jazz City, and the rest of the tracks 'fleshed out' at Le Fevre.

Can anybody shed any light on this?

Thanks!

Wallace Johnson told me he cut his RCA single in Atlanta and that Aaron Neville recorded there too on the same session. This was likely right before Seasaint opened and Jazz City was in flux. Makes sense the Meters recorded there too.
