On March 24, 1975, The Meters boarded the ship Queen Mary to play an album release party for Wings (Paul and Linda McCartney's band). The original masters in the art of funk, their set ignited the holy spirit of big sound. Thank the seven seas it was recorded live.
Never before released on vinyl, we partnered with The Ace Hotel to press Uptown Rulers: The Meters Live on the Queen Mary — the only live recording of The Meters during the mid-70s.
100% of proceeds from Uptown Rulers: The Meters Live on the Queen Mary benefit the New Orleans Musicians' Clinic, an organization that provides medical care to musicians, performing artists and cultural workers in New Orleans.
