By the time they released Fire On the Bayou in 1975, The Meters (now a quintet, with the addition of Cyril Neville to the lineup) had graduated from regional cult heroes to an internationally renowned recording act. In addition to playing on records by the likes of Paul McCartney, Dr. John, LaBelle and Robert Palmer, they were personally invited by the Rolling Stones to open their 1975 U.S. tour.
The momentum helped Fire On the Bayou become one of the Meters' most acclaimed and commercially successful albums and it remains a fan favorite, thanks to such gritty classic jams as "Talkin' 'Bout New Orleans" and "They All Ask'd for You," which brilliantly demonstrate the band's effortless instrumental expertise and organic rhythmic rapport.
