Little Feat at their best !

"In my opinion "Let It Roll" is one of the most under-rated albums to be released in the last 20 years. You will hear some of most catchy and funky tunes on this CD, and also some of the most beautifully layered ballads. Getting Craig Fuller (ex-Pure Prairie League) to join this band as lead vocalist was a miracle in itself. NOBODY......and I mean NOBODY could have come anywhere close to filling Lowell George's vocal spot like this guy. I have been listening to this album ever since it came out and it just keeps on gettin better. It's one of my all-time top 5 CDs. Get it!"
A fine comeback

"And so comes the third incarnation of the Feat... First and foremost, the critics have it all wrong. Little Feat really stopped being Lowell George's group after "Feats Don't Fail Me Now." And his contributions to the albums that followed ranged from pretty good to pretty slight. So to act as if this reunion is choppy because Lowell is gone is a dubious claim. Lowell gave everyone ample time to adjust to his absence. The only thing that mars this release is its somewhat dated sound. But being the master musicians Little Feat are, they mostly steer clear of the late 80s sounds that sometimes muck up albums produced during that watered down time period. Ex-Pure Prairie League frontman Craig Fuller turns a great parlor trick by making his voice sound exactly like Lowell George and, at times, this album hits the high marks that Feat did in the mid seventies. But, as we all know now, Fuller wasn't really a necessary addition to what Little Feat had become which is a good-time road house band that can play the socks off of most anyone. Mining the old times with Fuller's voice (which works wonders on "Hate To Lose Your Lovin'") and the melancholy "Hangin' On to the Good Times" works well here but they didn't need to proceed and drive so close to has-been territory."
Don't Miss this One

"This is on my desert island list. I heard The Feat do Hate to Lose Your Love, and Let It Roll on Sat. Nite Live and went out and bought this the next day. That was back in what '87? I've been a big Feat Fan since. Craig Fuller has since left band but this CD is still one of the best Feat CDs ever. Check it out you won't regret it."
