High five. While The Gaturs name should be familiar to those who have picked up various ’70s NOLA funk & soul compilations (i.e., Soul Jazz Records), the Wasted LP itself has proved much more elusive. After first digging the above LP while playing in the background at a friend’s house, during Jazz Fest in New Orleans, I’ve since been seeking out a physical copy of the disc high and low. Per usual, Amoeba records came through in the clutch (so remember kids, support your local record store). Highly, highly recommended for fans of The Meters.
