Biography

Though they had all the trappings of a Southern-fried blues band, Little Feat were hardly conventional. Led by songwriter/guitarist Lowell George, Little Feat were a wildly eclectic band, bringing together strains of blues, R&B, country, and rock & roll. The bandmembers were exceptionally gifted technically and their polished professionalism sat well with the slick sounds coming out of ... Read more in Amazon's Little Feat Store

Format: Audio CD
The sound on the first Little Feat is markedly different from the other 1970's Feat albums. Don't expect the polished sound of albums like "Time Loves a Hero", "Down on the Farm" or "The Last Record Album".

The line-up changed after this album, which may be part of the explanation to the sound change.

As usual most of Lowell George's songs are great; some even outstanding. On this album several of his songs are written with Bill Payne, who also wrote a couple of the songs alone.

Though the sound may be rougher than on most later Feat albums, most trademarks of the band are already shown here; the fat slide-guitarplaying, the great voice of Lowell George and of course the unique songwriting.

Some of the biggest Little Feat classics come from this debut-album. Songs like "Truck Stop Girl", "Willin'", "I've Been the One" are standout-songs.

Lesser known tracks like "Brides of Jesus" and "Taking My Time" are almost equally strong.

Interesting that some of these songs were actually released by other artist before this album came out. The Byrds recorded "Truck Stop Girl" for their "Untitled" album, and their version with Clarence White's vocals up-front is my clear favourite version of that song. Seatrain recorded "Willin'" for their 2nd 1970 album. My favourite version of that song is Little Feat's own re-recording for the "Sailin'Shoes" album, though this first version is also great.

This is the first album by Little Feat, Lowell George's solo project following his altercations with Frank Zappa, and, along with Sailing Shoes pre-dates the change in line-up that led to the funky rhythm section of Dixie Chicken and all following Little Feat recordings.

As such, it has a much more countrified feel to it that their later work, tinged with blues and some countercultural rock.

It's a bit of a mish-mash really - there's some folky-western tunes in there (The Brides of Jesus), some good rocking tunes on what it's like to be a hippy (Strawberry Flats), a couple of love songs influenced by the whole trucker-ethic (Truck Stop Girl, Willing) and the blues of 'How Many More Times?/44 Blues'.

Throughout, George's voice is forceful, tender and soaring as the need arises, and his slide guitar work is second to none. A great early album, but before they really defined their rather more Cajun sound.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By G. E. Harrison TOP 500 REVIEWER on 18 Jun. 2008
Format: Audio CD
This was Little Feat's first record and you can hear them assembling all the different elements that would make up their style for years to come:
multiple styles - check, great playing - check, killer songs - check, wierd lyrics - check. While they hadn't got the mix quite right yet, it was almost there and it does contain some classic songs that stayed in the act for many years.

For a start there is the first incarnation of "Willin" with Ry Cooder on guitar - it's not the definitive version which was to appear on "Sailing Shoes" but it is still mighty fine. Cooder also stays on for a medley of Howlin' Wolf songs, some of the toughest, most authentic blues Little Feat ever recorded. There are some beautiful country songs "Truck stop girl" and "Brides of Jesus", some melodic ballads "Taking my time" and "I've been the one" and some wierd ones "Hamburger midnight" and "Crazy captain gunboat Willie". Ah there was no one quite like Little Feat.

A really good album with mostly great songs & a couple that are just OK. I personally prefer the later line-up after Estrada left & Barrere, Gradney & Clayton joined. However this is still an excellent album with standout songs such as Snakes All Over Everything, Truck Stop Girl, Willin & Crazy Captain Gunboat Willie. There's more of a Country feel to this 1st release than later records. Also, the production is a bit rough & ready compared to their other albums.
If you are new to Little Feat, I suggest something from a later period such as Dixie Chicken as an introduction to the band. Already a Little Feat Fan? Then you'll love this one too.

Thank God Zappa fired them--A Classic 20 Feb. 2001
By Tom Tuerff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Lowell George and Roy Estrada started Little Feat as a direct result of being fired when Frank Zappa broke up the original Mothers. Say what you want about LF's later albums ("Feats Don't Fail Me Now" and "Dixie Chicken" are absolute must-haves, by the way) but the first two albums are truly something special with Estrada's intelligent bass playing and Lowell at his absolute creative pinnacle.
Has anybody written anything as wondrously whimsical as "Snakes on Everything?" As Drugged-up paranoid as "Strawberry Flats?" or as instant-classic as "Willing?" That's one of the cool parts of this LP--you get to hear "Willin'" in its original form, without the country-western motif--just Lowell singin' and strummin' while Ry Cooder plays slide.
Be warned, though--this is NOT standard three-chord, "I-know-where-this-is-going" type stuff. Fact is, you DON'T know where it's going and that's what makes it so good.
The band's tribute medley to Howlin' Wolf is absolutely great. Bill Payne's contributions to the album ain't bad, either. But Lowell George made his mark on the music world with this vinyl tattoo and I know it's one tattoo that I NEVER want removed.
Buy their second album, "Sailin' Shoes," too.

Great Songs! 22 Oct. 2004

Great Album 8 Sept. 2009
By Jake Jazz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I hate being the guy that's leaving all the 5 star reviews for the Little Feat albums (I left a 5 star for Down on the Farm last week, after 25 years of listening to it), but I'm currently listening to this particular album pathologically over and over again, so I have no choice but to answer the (currently) sole 3 star review with the following.

The self titled Little Feat album was the one Little Feat album I never owned back in the day, in the early eighties after Lowell George's death when I first got into the band. None of the songs were on the live album, Waiting for Columbus, except Willin', which was also on Sailin' Shoes, so I figured I didn't need another studio version (although now I am looking for any version of the song I can get -- just picked up Heart Like a Wheel because Linda Ronstadt does it on that record...). Also, I think it was out of print, so I would have had to get it on LP, and my record player was out of commission for part of this period -- but I digress.

As I said above, I am currently obsessively listening to this album, and I have analyzed what I like about it quite a bit, and it is fresh in my mind.

The music on the album is unlike anything Little Feat would ever do again. It is more mainstream rock like ("like" because none of this ever got onto the radio) in that it is less funky (for lack of a better work) than what they would do later, but also more experimental. The band shows a lot of good musicianmanship (if that's a word); everyone plays all out all the time. Bill Payne sticks to piano, and holds down the chord changes (while playing every key on the keyboard -- really reaching for them, but with a lot of taste), while Lowell George plays some extremely far out slide guitar fills throughout (Ry Cooter plays slide on Willin' and Forty-Four Blues -- and it's interesting to compare the styles of two slide guitar collosusses). Later Little Feat had the dueling guitars, so Payne was a bit more restrained, and had a multiple keyboard set-up.

The song writing is awsome as well. Stawberry Flats... Willin'... Hamburger Midnight... I've been the One... Truck Stop Girl... These are all very honest songs with interesting lyrics and great vocal performances. Half the songs on the album have been covered by other artists at one time or another. The band was young and full of energy, the music is raw and interesting, and really cutting edge. It is definitely different from what they turned into, but that is not a criticism -- at least not in this case.

I think the previous critique gets it wrong in several instances. Little Feat were not a southern rock band, but a California band. I think they had some early success with Dixie Chicken (great album, too), and so people kind of put them into that category, and later on, after Lowell George's death, they kind of marketed themselves as a New Orleans party band, but other than some funky beats (which southern bands do not have a monopoly on) there really wasn't anything linking them to the south in their hay-day. They never played the blues (at least not in the Allman Brothers sense of the word) or tried to get the macho Lynard Skynard guitar thing going, opting for understated interplay between the instruments.

The present album has these elements in a more raw form, but it is really fun to hear Lowell George turn up his guitar and rock out over some really cool tunes. Great Album.

Feats misunderstood gem 23 Feb. 2010
By Bloodbath_and_Beyond - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Many diehard Feat fans don't fully get this debut album by the band who only consisted of Lowell George, Ritchie Hayward, Bill Payne and of course former Mothers Of Invention member Roy Estrada on bass. George himself had been a member of Zappa's band for a brief time, and of course theres never been a concrete reason for his departure or firing (there are many circulating rumors however). Yes, the band doesn't have their signature funk inspired New Orleans styled rock/blues yet, but this album is still awesome. The opener from Payne, Snakes On Everything along with Strawberry Flats and Hamburger Midnight are the best tracks here. They have a raw, less refined approach than later efforts. The bands trademark albums Dixie Chicken, Feats Dont Fail Me Now, The Last Record Album and of course Time Loves A Hero all captured and pefected that fat/clean sound of a great country inspired blues rock n roll band who injected the elements of cooking funk. The debut album even parts of their second album Sailin' Shoes which also contained this line up found the band with their original sound. Which has a Stones influence for sure.

Like before stated, the songs are rawer, there's more guitar and genreally the earthy funk/rock of the DC band isn't here yet. But it doesnt matter, this is a unique album and it's more mellower moments like the orchestrated Takin' My Time and the affection blues tribute Forty Four Blues/How Many More Years really show the bands roots and what George's vision was. Coming from Zappa's group had obviously had a small impact on him as this album lyrically certianly has some more bizarre and humorous tales of life and freak-dom. This in turn, leads many fans to think the album sounds underdevloped and 'primitive'. But give it a listen, as it is one of the great lost records of it's time. [the original version of probably the bands most famous song Willin' is featured on this album with slide guitar by Ry Cooder]

Order something with snakes on everything 19 Sept. 2007
By Wayne Klein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Little Feat's classic debut album for Warner Brothers has been lovingly remastered by Shawn Britton (who has done two other recent terrific MoFi releases Linda Ronstandt's "Don't Cry Now" and The Allman Brothers Band's "Idlewind South"). This classic mix of humor, blues-rock (which features Ry Cooder as a guest guitarist on two tracks)sounds terrific. The original album art has been duplicated. There's also an appreciation by Russ Titleman (who met Lowell George in a class to learn how to play sitar during the Summer of Love)as well as the lyrics to all the songs on the album.

If you got into the band with later albums you should be aware that Little Feat's first album (an overlooked masterpiece, while it has the seeds of their later great albums, is probably the least like albums such as their classic live set "Waiting for Columbus" compared to later work. It has a much rougher blues edge to the overall sound but it's still a delight.

This is only available as a limited, numbered edition (don't know how many are being produced however). I'd highly recommend Little Feat's debut. Keep up the great work Shawn!
