Little Feat – Little Feat

Little Feat

Little Feat introduced Southern-fried accents and funny personality sketches to the West Coast’s country-rock template on its self-titled 1971 debut that remains singular in its aural and narrative visions of America.

Just as iconic illustrator Robert Crumb’s characters evoke weirdly sympathetic figures, so too do vocalist/guitarist Lowell George’s cartoonish character-driven narratives.

His tales seem to come from a dusty, long-lost comic book – or a secret history of American culture that’s a helluva lot more exciting, fun, and authentic than most anything you’ve heard.

Liberating, freewheeling, and lined with subtle streaks of dark humour, the musical companion to Easy Rider.

The album was recorded mostly in sessions between August and September 1970. Its sound is in a similar vein as the band’s more widely known later recordings, such as 1973’s Dixie Chicken and 1978’s Waiting for Columbus. The record features Little Feat’s initial line-up, with Roy Estrada on bass. It was the first of eight albums by the band before its first break up in 1979. The cover shows the mural Venice in the Snow, painted by the L. A. Fine Arts Squad in 1970, in Venice, Los Angeles.

And now, it has widescreen sonics to match.

Sourced from the original analogue master tapes, Mobile Fidelity’s 180-gram LP is more raw, bluesy, immediate, and open than any previous version.
