AllMusic Review by

New Orleans legends the Wild Magnolias released their second album, THEY CALL US WILD, in Europe in 1975, but it didn't come out in the States until the '90s, when the band finally went national. Today they're thought of as an old-school Mardis Gras party band, but these early recordings reveal a greasier, murkier sound that owes something to the swamp-funk shadings of late-'60s/early-'70s Dr. John, as well as the slightly jazzy West Coast funkateers in War.
