Notes

Seminal New Orleans funk.

Limited Color Vinyl Edition.

Cut from the Original Analog Master tapes.

Similar in sound to Look-Ka Py Py, Struttin’ distinguished itself with its increased emphasis on Art Neville‘s vocal stylings. (As opposed to the call-and-response shouted choruses from previous albums.)

The album included the R&B Singles hit “Chicken Strut”, soulful covers of Lee Dorsey, Ty Hunter, and even Jimmy Webb, and directed the group into a more expansive sound than before, rendering one of the most organic sounds in their discography.

Classic samples abound across Struttin’ with everyone from Dilla to A Tribe Called Quest to Whitney Houston, has had their way with Handclapping Song.

Originally released in 1970
