Audiophile Vinyl LP!
Sourced From Original Master Tapes!
Pressed At RTI!

1976 New Orleans funk masterpiece of Mardi Gras Indians backed up by The Meters and The Neville Brothers. Inducted into the Library National Recording Registry for it's cultural, artistic and historic importance. Sourced from the original master tapes. Features liner notes and lyrics. Audiophile Black Vinyl pressing at RTI.

The Wild Tchoupitoulas - a group of Mardi Gras Indians headed by George 'Big Chief Jolly' Landry - only released one album, but that one record caused a sensation upon its initial 1976 release. It was one of the first records of the album-oriented rock generation that captured the heady gumbo of New Orleans R&B and funk...The Wild Tchoupitoulas ranks among the great New Orleans albums...the Wild Tchoupitoulas lock into an extraordinary hybrid that marries several indigenous New Orleans musics, with swampy, dirty funk taking its place in the forefront.
-Stephen Thomas Erlewine,, 5/5 stars
