He had 2 Degrees in Bebop, a PhD in Swing ...

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Lowell was Da Man! Never got to see him in person but I never pass up anything associated with him. Get all the official Little Feat CDs (including their excellent and neglected post-Lowell George releases) and Thanks I'll Eat It Here before you get this, but get this anyway! It shows off George's brilliant songwriting in the hands of very sympathetic interpreters. I understand a Japanese version features Dr. John and others and includes the signature song Dixie Chicken, but you won't miss it. (There are plenty of covers of that one out there anyway.)"
A Truly Inspired Tribute To a Master Songwriter
William H. Maruca | 11/28/1998
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As others have said, this CD is a MUST for anyone who likes truly funky music. At the same time, it is a great example of the true influence of one of the true masters of songwriting. One of the things that impressed me most about this CD was the interlacing of Lowell's voice on a few songs. This is a shining example of the greatest songwriter in the business. Lowell is exactly that: a true master who died WAY too young. His influence will be felt for many years to come. This CD is an example of that..."
It is a truely great tribute to one of the all time greats!

"As far as I'm concerned Little Feat is the best sounding band on the planit, with or without Lowell George. With Lowell George however, they are a force! Not just a great sounding band, but an innovative band playing some really great music. We know what Little Feat is without Lowell, but how is Lowell without Little Feat? This album is the answer. Bonnie Raitt is, as always, a phenom. Allen Toussaint, Randy Newman, and Jackson Browne, do what they do best. And I even liked Eddie Money's 'Rock-n-Roll Doctor.' But perhaps the greatest tribute was made buy the most obvious people. A short yet true story...I had just bought the album, and was listening to it while engaged in some other activities, when along comes song # 11. It starts up with as funky a drum fill as you could ask for, then proceeds to blow my sox off! This was as funky a band as I had ever heard. I ran to the album credits, and looked up song # 11 to see who this undiscovered golioth could possibly be. the song...Honest Man, performed by...non other than Little Feat! The Feat is awsome, and Lowell George is Little Feat. Buy this album."
