Robert Earl Keen – Ready for Confetti (2011)

Posted by Zorn on August 31, 2011 with No Commentsas

Ready For Confetti is the 16th release in a celebrated career that spans 30+ years, and shows no signs of slowing down. Robert Earl Keen has toured extensively throughout most of his career, creating a loyal and extensive fan base. On any given night, the audience at a Robert Earl Keen show can be a mix of blue collar, white collar, young, middle aged, academic, honky tonk, hipster, city slicker, collegiate, socially conscious or socially inept. All are welcome and all gain something from the experience that keeps them coming back. Robert Earl Keen is a songwriter’s songwriter, who skillfully blends elements of folk, jazz, country, blues, rock, Texas swing and spoken word with his wry wit and penchant for satire. His songs make people laugh, cry, dance, sing and most importantly, think. Through all of this, the common thread that runs through Keen’s impressive body of work is the narrative. Robert Earl Keen is a master storyteller who stands side-by-side with the great storytellers of his era, in any genre. The sun-splashed title track, the swing-filled “Top Down,” the reggae-infused “Waves On The Ocean,” the venom-laced “The Road Goes On and On” and the country ballad “Paint The Town Beige” will confirm that Ready For Confetti is Robert Earl Keen in top form. Ready For Confetti was produced by Lloyd Maines (Dixie Chicks, Flatlanders), who also produced Keen’s critically acclaimed 2009 album The Rose Hotel (Lost Highway).

Little Feat – Collection 8 Album (1971-1979)

Posted by Zorn on August 27, 2011 with No Commentsas

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).
