Little Feat

Along with their cult-magnitude commercial success over seven years and as many studio releases, Little Feat, featuring Lowell George’s bluesy growls and glowing slide guitar work, has been critically revered as a touring band. So now whatever it is that never came through the studio control booth window barrels through the speakers in this four-side live LP. George, like the late Duane Allman, Eric Clapton, Keith Richard and Rod Price of Foghat, brings a distinct and raunchy touch to the slide guitar. With superb rhythm and keyboard support, this is the band’s finest effort since Feats Don’t Fail Me Now (1974). Of particular note are Willin’ and Dixie Chicken, but the excision of the exhilarating Rock and Roll Doctor from their live tapes is an act of production malpractice.
