Click on above image for larger picture and better detail.

Since this autograph was originally posted, I have had George Porter, Jr. add his autograph to this great photo! Will be updating the image soon!

I live in New Orleans and don't know anyone who's even seen one of these things! After Eddie Bo (and perhaps Lee Dorsey), The Meters are the most important group in the history of funk. Meters memorabilia is in short supply and great demand - here's an opportunity to own somthing really difficult to come by. Pictured from left to right is the original early 70s lineup; Zigaboo Modeliste, Gierge Porter, Jr., Art Neville, and Leo Nicentelli. Nocentelli is without a doubt the most influential funk guitarist of all time - and he is also the most reclusive member of the original lineup. His signature is quite rare - he has signed the photo in red paint pen; "To Jeffrey/ Best of Luck/ Leo Nocentelli".

The photo measures 8x10 with the New Orleans address for Allen Toussaint and Marshall Seahorn's management company at the bottom. It is in fair condition showing wear, tack holes in the corners and some minor rips at the margins. There is also some tape remnants on the back.

The Sound of Building Coffins
by Louis Maistros

Signed copies available exclusively on the net here at Louie’s Juke Joint, just click this link to order!


"Louis Maistros has written a lyrical, complex, and brave novel that takes enormous risks and pulls them all off. He is a writer to watch and keep reading, a writer to cherish."
Peter Straub

"The Society of North American Magic Realists welcomes its newest, most dazzling member, Louis Maistros. His debut novel is a thing of wonder, unlike anything in our literature. It startles. It stuns. It stupefies. No novel since CONFEDERACY OF DUNCES has done such justice to New Orleans. If Franz Kafka had been able to write like Peter Straub, this might have been the result."
Donald Harington,
Winner of the Robert Penn Warren Award and the Oxford-American Lifetime Achievement Award.

“The Sound of Building Coffins is easily one of the finest and truest pieces of New Orleans fiction I've ever read.”
- Poppy Z. Brite

“One has to write with considerable authenticity to pull off a story steeped in magic and swamp water that examines race and class, death and rebirth, Haitian voodoo, and the beginnings of jazz in 1891 New Orleans...The plot is complex and magical, grounded in the history of the city, without being overly sentimental. There is a comfort with death as a part of life in this work that reveals deep feeling for the city and its past....Highly recommended for all fiction collections, especially where there is an interest in jazz."
- Library Journal
