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.
