I want more stuff like this:

Wild Magnolias - Smoke My Peace Pipe (1974) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rW1Zz1zqDcE)

Help me!

I have the LP with this tune on, which is heavy, and another LP with some other Wild Magnolias stuff (inc. the great "New Suit" - clip here (http://www.last.fm/music/The+Wild+Magnolias/_/New+Suit)). So who else was doing this kind of stuff?

Other than The Meters?

yeah...although i only have a couple of tunes by them, so there's room for more.

tbh that's all I've really got.. These came up on a quick scan of Discogs - may be of interest?

Should have said earlier I do also have the soul jazz new orleans funk comp, which is nice. but it's the wild magnolias stuff that really grabbed me out of all of it. Will check out those discog refs, at first glance I know a few things on there but not much. Cheers.
