Album Review

The Golden Eagles aren't so much a performance troupe as they are a ritual band. This 1988 disc featured them in live performance at the H & R Bar in New Orleans, and included everything from frenetic collective vocals to a reverent prayer song. It was raw, exciting, unpredictable music, performed without attention to anything except keeping the intensity level up. It was also dense and rhythmically varied, with Henry Singleton and Larry Boudreaux adding an Afro-Latin tinge on congas. If you're seeking genuine New Orleans "Indian" music, The Golden Eagles are the real item.

A great find!

I first learned about the Mardis Gras Indians through Stanton Moore of Galactic, and this is one of the best recordings I was able to find on iTunes. I once heard a version of Indian Red by Spencer Bohren years ago (even toyed with having my band do a version of it), but I didn't understand the Mardis Gras Indian connection at the time. The fact that this is live may well be the key here. Closer, perhaps, to what you might hear if you ran into them on the street on Fat Tuesday. Enjoy! P.S. Mardis Gras Indians = a pre-cursor to rap and hip-hop? Just a thought ;)

Great great great

This is like being in N.O. - fine performances all around, great intensity. and only an idiot would think that these are the "Eagles." These are the Golden Eagles from New Orleans a tradition for 50+ years.

wait a minute

These aren't the eagles that i know- the eagles that made hotel california. PUT THEM UP. these sound like native american chants, not ROCK. its the same exact fiasco as simple plan
