A late 90s return to form for the Wild Magnolias
– the funky New Orleans combo best known for their classics in the 70s! The sound here is a bit more tightly produced, but still stays in the classic Magnolias
groove – a Mardi Gras-themed blend of Crescent City rhythms, soulful vocals, and brassy instrumentation – served up here with a few more contemporary instrumental touches, and a bit of help on production from Wardell Quezerque and Cyril Neville. There's a few high-profile guests on the record – like Dr John, Bruce Hornsby, The Neville Brothers, Allen Toussaint, and Robbie Robertson – and titles include "Pock A Nae", "Life Is A Carnival", "Cowboys & Indians", "All On A Mardi Gras Day", "Old Time Indian", "Hang Tough", "Battlefield", "Herc Jolly John", and "Peacepipe".
