AllMusic Review by

The triple-disc set Mardi Gras Party captures the festive atmosphere of New Orleans with performances from the Meters, the Neville Brothers, Wild Tchoupitoula, and Dr. John. The Nevilles' "Midnight Key," the Meters' "Fire on the Bayou," and Dr. John's "Mos' Scocious" and "Goin' Back to New Orleans" are some of the songs that best represent Mardi Gras' fun, freewheeling atmosphere, but the set also includes some good-time oldies like Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels' "Devil With a Blue Dress On," the Coasters' "Searchin'," and Dusty Springfield's "Son of a Preacher Man" for good measure. An entertaining collection for Mardi Gras parties or otherwise.
