Editors’ Notes

Little Feat leader Lowell George had already laid down some of rock ’n’ roll's finest moments (Sailin’ Shoes, Dixie Chicken) by the time he recorded his only solo album. (He was also fed up with Little Feat’s increasing fondness for the suddenly mainstream sound of jazz-fusion.) George’s pleasing and believable voice could sell any theme, and he was a poet of the streets whose gift for spinning yarns from the darkside dovetailed perfectly with his big-as-California heart. There’s some of that here, on the songs he wrote, but mostly there’s lots of the New Orleans sweetness that he went for on Dixie Chicken: mixes of funk, R&B, pop and jazz. Allen Toussaint’s warm “What Do You Want the Girl Do” leads things, while a funked-up yet unfussy Feat retread (“Two Trains”) simply sings. George tackles Rickie Lee Jones’ “Easy Money,” which helped jumpstart Jones’ own career. George's own “20 Million Things” and Fred Tackett’s “Find a River” are such tender regrets that they sum up his troubled life, which, sadly, ended just after this album dropped.

Customer Reviews


It is a great album and I'm not saying this just because he was my father. But because our music industry is not the same,and the love for music is lost. This is an example of all the right reasons to do a solo album. Love music and love life! Rock on !!! Luke

There can only be one Lowell George

Ya know, friends, there are musicians who have touched, influenced, rocked, and changed our lives, sure. I know. I ask, and respond, if ya like, who is like Lowell George? Like who was similar to Fred Rogers? Who like Jim Croce? Nuff said ..... Help wanted / Not enough / You know / These times are getting rough Like Zevon said, "Enjoy every sandwich."

Best Album Ever

This is my favorite album of all time and music is a big part of my life. You should put it on and play it 50 times before you decide if I'm wrong. Every ounce is pure gold. If you let it, it can change you in to a person you'll like more...not kiddin'. God bless ya Lowell, you are missed

As Little Feat was disbanding in late 1978, their lead guitarist/songwriter Lowell George recorded a solo album, Thanks I'll Eat It Here, that sounded as loose and funky as the band in their prime. After its release the following year, he set out on tour to support the album. Sadly, George died of a heart attack while on the road; he left behind a body of gritty, eclectic, and funky rock & roll. On the first five Little Feat albums, his songwriting...
