This is The Meters first album with Cyril Neville as a member. On 'Fire On The Bayou' you'll not only find echoes of their early R&B funkiness, but also some very New Orleans songs like "Talkin' 'Bout New Orleans", "They All Ask'd For You", and "Mardi Gras Mambo". The band also gets down and funky 'Rejuvenation'-style with tracks like "Fire On The Bayou", "Love Slip Upon Ya", "Can You Do Without?" and "Liar," which are best placed in-between on the folksy R&B "Out in the Country" (love that chord progression) and the jazzy guitar workout "Middle of the Road". This album exudes the New Orleans spirit-musically as well as lyrically, extolling the virtues of great food, bayou living, and Mardi Gras.
