4.0 out of 5 stars Vic's "art-therapy" class 18 July 2001
Format:Audio CD
`Little` is Vic's first album. He's referred to his early songs as "art-therapy", an exorcism of the demons of his middle-Georgia upbringing through his adopted art. Safe in his wheelchair, and in his new Athens G.A. bohemia, Vic was free to vent the bristling inner torment, long suppressed. "I am not victim/I am an atheist" he sings in `Speed Racer` with his devoutly Christian parents now distanced. The resulting catharsis is harrowing, erratic and suitably bare-boned and minimal. It is a relief that it is also offset by Vic's wit (`Soft Picasso` is about a modern love affair, "completely cool and casual/they hardly knew each other was there") and idiosyncratic wordplay, and complemented by his non-repetitive story-telling technique. This is Vic before his voice was tempered, before the tunes were polished, before arrangements were made and before he started writing with an attentive audience in mind. This is the purists' record, and brilliant and unique it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars The album to start with... 15 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm writing this in 2010, a year overshadowed in terms of Vic Chesnutt, by his death in December last year.

The ironic silver lining with these terrible events is always an increased interest in an artist's work and until recently I would have chosen Drunk to recommend to people as a tough but perfect introduction to Vic Chesnutt's work and only finally found this album this year but it has been one that I've constantly listened to and I think it's the only real starting point, especially as it was his.

Accuracy aside, the story goes that Michael Stipe (who writes the liner notes on this expanded edition) encouraged Vic Chesnutt into the studio where they had so little time and money that they were using unused tracks on already recorded-to tape to maximise the songs recorded in the session. Depending on the narrator, either stipe plays some simple keyboards or found the sounds for Vic Chesnutt to play.

There is a real energy of opportunity in these recordings, a sense of urgency to get them down in as exciting a way as possible and all of the vocal performances are crackling with personality and narrative emotion as though you were having a conversation with the guy.

The songs are mainly recollections from childhood onwards and there is a mixture of darkness (Mr Reilly) and humour (Rabbit Box, Soft Picasso) but you never get one without the other. I don't find them depressing in any way, more relaxing, as you settle into the stories while soaking up the skills of a master of the simple song with one of the most beautifully distinctive voices I've ever heard.

4.0 out of 5 stars And the modern girl was elated... 25 Nov 1999
By Kelley Gadberry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Warnings are in order for the uninitiated - this album is addictive! Raw and unrefined, *Little* may very well be the essential Vic. I first heard this work on vinyl many years ago; I finally wore the grooves off the old LP and decided to break down and buy the CD. It is a piece of art that I have continued to enjoy over many years, and through many changes in musical taste.
This listener finds Vic's edgy lyricism to be a beautiful thing. However, if you are a fan of slick, highly produced recordings, this may NOT be the album for you. Also, if you are one of those who do not enjoy hearing the accents of the rural South, you may want to give it a pass. Everybody else, dig in!
An all-time favorite.

4.0 out of 5 stars The First Little Album...With A Big Punch! 28 Oct 1999
By Steven Bailey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I wound up getting desperate to find Chesnutts first album Little....so I ordered it.And a week went by but it finally came!All I had by him was About To Choke so it just seemed important to get Little. Well I like it better than About To Choke. Seems so much more Not-Produced.But thats a plus. This is a mostly acoustic cd with hints of keyboards. If you have any of his cds then you know all about his car crash and the wheelchair...and his battles with drinking.Like the songs on About To Choke there is this dark/folk storytelling going on. He sings a bit rusty, weary and shaky. But it gets addictive.He seems to be thinking of the past alot on Little.If Dylan Thomas had lived now and wound up growing up in the south...and had picked up the guitar and sang his poems of sorrow he would have been Vic Chesnutt. Sometimes to weep over something is poetic and down right magical.....amen.

5.0 out of 5 stars simple 12 Mar 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Just a guitar and wonderful lyrics. The few added tonal arrangements that are on the album seem like an intrusion on a quiet prayer session. The lyrics are quite unique I think. Not about fire and love and loss or anger, but simply describing the little things in the world. This effecting album reminds me of t.s. eliot's description of the end of the world--as a whimper, rather than a loud bang. I wish vic chestnutt would make some other simple albums like this one.
