YouTube Du Jour: Dr. John, Professor Longhair, Earl King, The Meters play Big Chief

The classic Fess Mardi Gras anthem “Big Chief,” is performed on this PBS broadcast taped in Chicago in 1974 by what might be the greatest congregation of New Orleans legends documented. With Dr. John leading the charge, Professor Longhair, Professor Longhair and Earl King front the Meters for a very special and outlandish performance.
