The sixties and seventies produced some truly great popular music, but Little Feat were one of the few bands who took the genre onto an altogether higher plain. The album Sailin' Shoes (1972) brought the first indications of a truly mature musicality and the brilliance of Dixie Chicken (1973) was the manifestation of this promise. Moving away from the formulaic and into a rarefied territory of their own making, the band drew heavily on their southern roots to produce an album which never fails to impress and frequently induces nothing less than awe. Lowell George was, of course, the indispensable catalyst in this intriguing mix, and his talents, as songwriter, vocalist, guitarist, producer and arranger, don't waver for one second. The band don't let him down either and it would be hard to imagine such artistry without their consummate musicianship. There seems little point in even trying to describe in detail such a varied and textured album as Dixie Chicken; it's best just to buy it and listen - and then treat yourself to Sailin' Shoes and the follow-up, Feats Don't Fail Me Now (1974). Another 'must buy', an album of bits and pieces compiled after the death of Lowell George, is Hoy! Hoy! (1981). There's material on this most other bands would sell their souls for, but which George discarded. But his solo album, Thanks I'll Eat It Here (1979), is possibly the only other work that, on its own terms, truly equals the great Dixie Chicken. Ian Nicol.

This album must be one of the most underrated of all time. Little Feat are often dismissed as mere critics' darlings, but they made some of the most wonderful pop music of the 1970's. Although the previous two albums, "Little Feat" and "Sailin' Shoes" are pretty damn good, and "Feats Don't Fail Me Now" and "The Last Record Album" are superb, this is the album where it all comes together.
Far and away the best Little Feat album (quite an achievement), "Dixie Chicken"'s stew of soul, rock, r'n'b, blues, funk and country is dazzling and seemingly effortless. The breadth of melodic and rhythmic invention on display here just shows up so many other rock acts as the dullards they are. It seems almost criminal to pick highlights, but the title track, "Two Trains", "On Your Way Down" and the mighty "Fat Man in the Bathtub" stand out. Even the instrumental, "Lafayette Railroad" is fantastic. Only "Walking All Night" lets the side down, and it's still not bad.
Do yourself a favour - get this now. You'll be listening to it for as long as you like music.

Little Feat really hit the jackpot with Dixie Chicken - every ingredient in that spicy musical musical recipe was hot and tasty - brilliant playing, earthy vocals and fantastic songs. There's not a song less than excellent and several classics - the title, Two Trains, Fat Man, Juliette but also my all time favourite (though not original) Feat number "On Your Way Down". Rhythmically the band are just perfect, the tightest funkiest groove imaginable, paynes keyboards magnificent and george's slide guitar is a dream. Little Feat at their imperious best although "Feats Don't Fail Me" and "Last Record Album" are also great.

It doesn't get better than this. Lowell George was a brilliant songwriter and performer who burned himself out much too quickly. Dixie Chicken belongs with Eat A Peach, Layla & Other Assorted Love Songs, Skeletons in the Closet and Let It Be as one of the very best rock has to offer, particularly for aspiring blues guitarists and keyboardists -- and for those who do not know the original Little Feat, let this be the beginning of a wonderful new musical indulgence.

I'd only got into Little Feat in the last year as one of my mates who knew I was into the Doobies recommended them to me, but what a band!
Dixie Chicken is definitely up their with their best, I also happen to love Sailin' Shoes, Feats Don't Fail Me Now and Last Record Album. The first 4 tracks are absolutely sublime, Two Trains being a masterpiece as is On Your Way Down. Fat Man in the Bathtub is also magnificent and throughout Lowell's amazing voice is just sheer perfection.
Added to that, the whole band's brilliant playing (in particular Ken Gradney's bass and Bill Payne's keyboards) and their tightness as a group just make it an album I want to listen to again & again.
If you haven't got into them or if you have but haven't listened to this album, you've just got to do it!!

I defy you to find four opening tracks better than what was once side one of Dixie Chicken. Ideally, buy it with its successor, 'Feats Don't Fail Me Now'.

In the dark days before punk's scorched earth policy, Little Feat were one of the few saving graces. An unassumedly multi-racial band that welded together funk, soul and country, fronted by their leader Lowell George. Unfortunately, Lowell died prematurely and these albums represent the peak of the band's career.

From the comedic title track and 'Fat Man In the Bathtub', the soulful blues of 'On Your Way Down' and 'Two Trains' to the stoned run-out of 'Lafayette Railroad', it doesn't put a foot wrong.

If you like rock with the roll still in it, you won't regret buying this. Truly neglected genius.
