Editors’ Notes

The Los Angeles-based Little Feat started out as Captain Beefheart’s backing band, briefly became purveyors of country rock, then were widely (and mistakenly) adopted as part of Southern rock music. With the 1978 double concert album Waiting for Columbus, Little Feat added another aspect to their legacy, as one of the premier live bands of the ‘70s. Recorded over a series of 1977 dates in London and Washington, D.C., these performances translate Feat’s distinctive command of the stage. Part stoner rock band, part soul revue, and part jam band, they were unlike any other touring act. The well-chosen setlist is bolstered by the presence of the Tower of Power horn section, which gives “Spanish Moon,” “Rocket In My Pocket” and “Old Folks’ Boogie” a lot of extra oomph. Despite their instrumental prowess, the members of Feat carried themselves with a casual, downhome air. Not unlike the Band’s Last Waltz, which came out the same year, Waiting for Columbus feels like a celebration rather than an exhibition.

Customer Reviews

This IS the album I remember from my youth! Thank you iTunes!

Even has Don't bogart that joint and Apolitical blues which were missing from the CD I had purchased to replace my record this a must own recording!

This is one of the greatest records in rock'n'roll collectin' dust in many a collection. Little Feat at their peak (this is their peak) was one of the best bands in the world. They never garnered the kind of attention they deserved, but those who knew, KNEW! As I write this review, the album is only $7.99. GET IT. It is pure rock'n'soul for your roll. Trust your Sugapablo.

Rock n Rolls best!

Waiting for Columbus is simply my favorite album of all time. Lowell George had something really special!

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,...
