Little Feat is an American rock band formed by singer-songwriter, lead vocalist and guitarist Lowell George and keyboardist Bill Payne in 1969 in Los Angeles. Although the band has undergone several changes in its lineup, the music remains an eclectic blend of rock and roll, blues, R&B, boogie, country, folk, gospel, soul, funk and jazz fusion influences.
This collection includes the original Little Feat, during years while Lowell George was alive. Lowell was a member of Frank Zappa’s Mothers of Invention. Payne had auditioned for the Mothers, but had not joined. They formed Little Feat along with former Mothers’ bassist Roy Estrada and drummer Richie Hayward from George’s previous band, the Factory. The name of the band came from a comment made by Mothers’ drummer Jimmy Carl Black about Lowell’s “little feet.” The spelling of “feat” was an homage to The Beatles.
There are three legends about the genesis of Little Feat. One has it that George showed Zappa his song “Willin’,” and that Zappa fired him from the Mothers of Invention, because he felt that George was too talented to merely be a member of his band, and told him he ought to go away and form his own band.
While touring in support of his solo album in June 1979, at the age of 34, George collapsed in his hotel room in Arlington, Virginia. An autopsy determined the cause of death was a heart attack, although it is considered likely that George’s excess weight, (formerly chronic) drug usage, and the strain of touring contributed to his condition.
The surviving members finished and released Down on the Farm before disbanding in 1979. The band was revived in the late 1980s and continued actively performing. The following eight albums represent the recordings of Little Feat up until the time of his death. (Lowell George, 1945 – 1979).
Here is the 2007 American Tour Compilation (edited and compiled by Rustbucket). It fits on 4 CDs (2 from the acoustic sets and 2 from the electric sets) and includes the best available version of every song played on this leg of the tour (October to December 2007). This is a great alternative to getting many different shows from different dates on the tour, as this contains the best-sounding recordings from all the shows. According to the compiler’s notes “Most of the acoustic songs I’ve selected are from Boston Dec 3 and Upper Darby Dec 9. I’ve included both the piano and synth versions of A Man Needs A Maid. Also included are two versions of Mellow My Mind, including the first night from Boise with the mouth harp intro. I’ve put all the piano songs together onto Disc 2, so I’ve subtitled Disc 2 ‘Piano Songs’, albeit a rather short disc so I’ve also included from the BSB October 28th ‘The Way’ and though not a piano song, the acoustic band version of ‘No Hidden Path’. Most of the electric songs are from Upper Darby Dec 10. To my ears this show was the most clear and dynamic for the loud electric songs. The only fades here are the long loud audience applause at the end of each track. I’ve then used WavTrim to get songs on each set to play at the same volumes. Then Goldwave to cross-fade the end of one track into the start of the next for each disc.
