Third album released in 1970. Features the hits “Chicken Strut” ,“Hand Clapping Song” and more. A classic and heavily sampled record. Limited 180gm audiophile vinyl LP pressing. There is funk, and there is Funk. This here is of course the latter. Struttin' is the third studio album by the funk group The Meters, originally released in 1970. The first single was the song 'Chicken Strut'. It reached #11 on the U.S. R&B Singles chart. It may not appear to be drastically different than it's predecessors, at least not on the surface. After all, the title of the lead single 'Chicken Strut' intentionally recalls their previous biggest 'Cissy Strut' and it has the same basic Meters groove. And if the essential sound remains unchanged, that is because that organic, earthy funk is The Meters' signature. Other groups have tried to replicate it, but nobody ever played it better. It was on this album The Meters introduced vocals to their style as well, with Art Neville's leads on covers of Ty Hunter's soulful uptown shuffle 'Darling, Darling, Darling' Jimmy Webb's groovy ballad 'Wichita Lineman' and Lee Dorsey's 'Ride Your Pony' (the Meters provided support on the original recording).
