Wolfgang’s Vault Concert of the Week-Little Feat
Posted by jhochstat on March 24, 2008
I am sure that I am one of many people who was frst turned on to Little Feat by listening to Waiting for Columbus on vinyl in someone’s basement somewhere in New Jersey. I have to say that Wolfgang’s Vault really steps it up when it comes to streaming live concerts, it is truly one of the greatest collection of live music anywhere.
The summary states:
This concert, when Little Feat was opening for Electric Light Orchestra, remains one of their most legendary performances, broadcast live on KSAN radio.
It’s no wonder that this performance became so popular, as it captures the band at the peak of the “Lowell George era,” promoting the release of The Last Record Album. This album signaled the emergence of jazzier elements being incorporated into the bands sound, as well as stronger contributions from guitarist Paul Barrere and keyboardist Bill Payne, which added greater diversity to the group’s material.
The recording kicks off with a smokin’ version of “Apolitical Blues,” followed by a double dose of funky New Orleans flavored rock, with sizzling takes of “Skin It Back” transitioning into “Fat Man In The Bathtub.” This establishes a deep groove that continues to intensify as the set progresses.
