Simultaneously one of the greatest New Orleans rock and roll albums of all-time and one of the great soul albums of the 1970's, Yes We Can was produced by Allen Toussaint at the height of his powers and is propelled by The Meters (who back Lee Dorsey admirably throughout). Highlights include the utterly modern modern protest songs "Tears, Tears and More Tears" and "Who's Gonna Help Brother Get Further" and the diamond-hard funk of "Gator Tail." The album was championed by The Band (they hired Toussaint to arrange horns for Rock of Ages), The Clash (they hired Dorsey to open their 1980 USA tour) and Elvis Costello. Many songs from the album were covered by major artists later in the decade including The Pointer Sisters ("Yes We Can") and Robert Palmer ("Sneakin' Sally Thru The Alley") among others.
