Synopsis

Album Description
After their brilliant self-titled debut and sophomore release Sailin' Shoes,leader Lowell George grabbed the reins as producer for the next group of sessions, resulting in 1973's Dixie Chicken. Usually considered their pinnaclee studio album, it's the understated elegance that keeps it all together.While maintaining the eccentricities that made Feat...well Feat, a subtle infu- sion of New Orleans r&b/soul undertones, seems the natural fit. The group's songwriting reaches new heights throughout, with a stop-over homage to the N.O. master Allan Toussaint, with a slow groove of his "On Your Way Down". Guests abound: two Bonnies, (Raitt and Bramlett, plus Three Dog Night's Danny Hutton lend supporting vocals. Always reliable Sneaky Pete's pedal steel and The Stones' Mick Taylor lends a few tasty licks, but it's the main-core Feat, now playing their tightest together that makes this definitely one of the greatest!

"Just flipping through my AMG guide to Blues one day I decided to read about Little Feat and became especially interested when i saw that it had Lowell and Estrada (former Zappa musicians)... after picking this disc up at the store and listening to it, I simply could not believe (though i guess it's not the 1st time that such has been the case) that such an excellent group could be so little known! This is really an extraordinary album; I can't wait to check some of their other work!"
