The Meters - Quintessential Recordings

The Meters grew out of the New Orleans musical gumbo, developing their own brand of Soul, Funk and Rhythm and Blues.  The band featured the funky second-line drums of Ziggy Modeliste, the thumping bass of George Porter, the percussive guitar of Leo Nocentelli and the pumping Hammond B3 organ of Art Neville.  Later, Cyril Neville was added on percussion and shared vocals with Art and Ziggy.  Later off- shoots of this band include the Neville Brothers and the Wild Tchoupitoulas.  Here are the tracks that I see as the Q of the Meters (yes, there are quite a few here).

Above is my youtube playlist link to the Q of the Meters.                             Below is the complete list of tracks I have selected as the Q of the Meters.
