This is, undeniably, where everything started to go pear-shaped for the Meters. Take the opening track, "Disco Is the Thing Today," a four-on-the-floor pumper that sounds nothing like the Meters and everything like BT Express. For the rest of the record the Meters and producer Allen Toussaint don't necessarily prove that sentiment true, but they do strive to sound as mainstream as possible, turning out slick ballads, frothy dance numbers, and pop-funk without spine.
Trick Bag is the seventh studio album by the funk group The Meters. The name comes from their cover of the Earl King single of the same name. In spring of 1976 the band was on tour opening for the Rolling Stones on their Tour of Europe '76. According to Jason Berry's Up from the Cradle of Jazz, several tracks on this album are preliminary recordings and were selected for release in the absence of band members.

Album Trick Bag. Trick Bag Lyrics. Twelve o' clock at night, you walk out the door You told me baby, you were going to the drug-store Well, in my mind, I knew you were lying; The drug-store closed at a quarter to nine I say I saw you kissing Jimmy across the fence I heard you telling Jimmy I ain't got no sense The way. you've been acting is such a drag; You done put me in a trick-bag
