Cut from the original analog master tapes by Kevin Gray

Limited edition "Spring Green" vinyl

Features the hit single "Look-Ka Py Py"

The 1970 seminal album Look-Ka Py Py by New Orleans' The Meters is one of their most beloved releases. Produced by one of New Orleans' preeminent musicians, Allen Toussaint, the album has been listed on the Rolling Stone list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

AllMusic said of the album and the band: "The second album by The Meters continues the sound that made them New Orleans legends." Ted Drozdowski of Rolling Stone characterized the album's sound as "clear, unhurried and certain." He characterized the guitar sound as "brief, precise," the organ sound as "free of the rhythm," the bass sound as "fat, saw-tooth grooves," and the drum sound as "dry and up front." In ranking the album for its greatest-all-time list, the magazine noted the bass riffs and the off-beat drumming.

The album's title track "Look-Ka Py Py" reached No. 11 on the US R&B Singles chart and the album reached No. 23 on the U.S. R&B Albums chart.
