iTunes Editors’ Notes

On the third Little Feat album, Lowell George had solidified himself as the band’s frontman, producer, and main creator of the ideas and songs. The band had already mastered their own brand of shambolic rock and bluesy truck-stop polish, but here the songs are more like an American travelogue (listen to the lulling stoner sadness of “Roll Um Easy” and the faraway hum of “Lafayette Railroad”). The journey takes major stops down South, of course. That's heard beautifully on the hip-swinging rumble of “Walkin’ All Night,” the bubbly cover of Allen Toussaint’s “On Your Way Down,” and with the hard-drinking humor (and sadness) of the title song, which became Little Feat’s signature tune. More, the lovers' triangle in “Two Trains” matches in intensity the eyebrow-raising sexual subtext of “Fat Man in the Bathtub” and the Southern gothic glow of “Kiss It Off.” Dixie Chicken is indeed the bedrock of Little Feat’s legacy, blending Laurel Canyon folk and New Orleans sass with dirty R&B and Stones-y rock ’n’ roll. It even features Bonnie Raitt, Bonnie Bramlett, and Motown’s Gloria Jones on backup vocals.

Customer Reviews

A Great Disc!

This is a shamefuuly overlooked slice of classic rock. I liked ''Feats Don't Fail Me Now'' a bit better, but you can't go wrong with this one.It's bluesy,funky and it rocks,too.It covers a lot of bases and covers them well.A very enjoyable album and I highly recommend it.

One of my "stuck on a desert island" albums

Classic rock radio wonders why no one listens anymore. It's because they've forgotten albums like this. Every track is simply amazing but because it doesn't "test well" with the mainstream audiences in Peoria, you won't ever hear anything from this piece of artwork on the airwaves again.

Thank goodness Zappa fired Lowell George from the Mothers or we may not have this amazing New Orleans bluesy/rocky/best Little Feat album ever for radio to ignore.

My Favorite Album

What's not to like? Loved this lineup (They were awesome live!): Lowell, with Paul Barrere, Sam Clayton, Kenny Gradney, Richie Hayward, and Bill Payne -- This album also had Bonnie Bramlett and Bonnie Raitt on backing vocals.
--A superb album from an extremely talented group.

Though they had all the trappings of a Southern-fried blues band, Little Feat were hardly conventional. Led by songwriter/guitarist Lowell George, Little Feat were a wildly eclectic band, bringing together strains of blues, R&B, country, and rock & roll. The bandmembers were exceptionally gifted technically and their polished professionalism sat well with the slick sounds coming out of Southern California during the '70s. However, Little Feat were hardly slick — they had a surreal sensibility,...
