This is a collection of the most popular numbers from the 1970s band Little Feat. A combination of blues, rock and swampy New Orleans influenced styles, they mostly feature the wonderful slide guitar and beautiful vocals of the much missed Lowell George. That man's voice was as smooth and flexible as a silken rope, and he threw it around like a magician. His songs often have weird time signatures and weirder melodies, like Fat Man in the Bathtub and Two Trains, contrasting with the sweet ballad Willin' (which became the American truckers' unofficial anthem) and the even sweeter 20 Million Things, poignantly recorded shortly before his death from a heart attack at the early age of 34. There are several songs that the band recorded after he died, and although excellent, they don't have that special George magic, although I've always had a soft spot for Old Folks' Boogie- terrific drum intro. If you've never heard of the Feat or of George, do yourself a favour and give this album a go.
From, TOTP to the Old Grey Whistle Test Little Feat always played Live A combination of R+B Country, rock and Pop all rolled into one and this album is the Best of their Best It makes you want to get up and Boogie from the Car to your living room "Enjoy!!"
What can be said about Little Feat that hasn't already been said or written. Perhaps never as well played by dj's over here, it's possible that they undeservedly missed out on some of the acclaim that should have been theirs. A great group. A favourite track? - Rock n' Roll Doctor.
