AllMusic Review by

A jam band from the same New Orleans as the Meters explicates the infinite groove before an appreciative local audience too busy sweating up the dancefloor to notice the jokesters on stage covering Duke Ellington, Allen Toussaint (by way of the legendary Lee Dorsey), and Black Sabbath. Occasional lapses into artiness for its own sake (always a risk with ironic jazz-chop slummers) are forgiven easily enough, because the charitable young hippies who comprise the majority of the band's boogie-minded fan base are kind people that way.
