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
This was Little Feat's second LP, and for me easily their best, with a selection of killer songs and a great sound. Lowell George was still the main man with the songs rooted in rock, blues and country rather than the jazz of their later albums, which had Bill Payne more to the fore.

'Willin' from the debut release is reworked and unbelievably made even better with a more country feel. The title track is wonderful laid-back melodic gospel blues, with great obscure lyrics. Indeed all the songs have lyrics out of left field, which you can happily sing along with but later you think "Hang on what the hell does that mean?!?"

Bill's contributions here include two unusual songs `Got no shadow' and `Cat fever' and a more straight-forward (apart from the meaning) co-composition with Ritchie Hayward `Tripe face boogie'. Lowell's contributions go from the tuneful acoustic `Trouble', through the sophisticated rock of `Easy to slip', the "progressive" blues of `Cold, cold, cold' and `Apolitical Blues', to the "file-under-unclassifiable" `Texas Rose Café'.

This really was a great set of songs that formed the core of the Feats' live sets for years to come and still sounds great and totally original today. The songs are all extremely catchy and while rooted in rock, blues and country they have a twist and an intelligence that set them apart from their contemporaries' songs at the time. I remember that the Virgin mail order catalogue of the early 70s had "Sailin' Shoes" labelled as a `modern classic' - it still is.

Format: Audio CD
I have never been so mystified by an Amazon review as I am by the guy who calls this magnificent album `a turkey`. One or two of the original Little Feat`s later offerings may show a slight falling off, but Sailin` Shoes is a masterpiece - as, to my mind, are their eponymous debut and their 4th album, Feats Don`t Fail Me Now, classics both.
This loosely sumptuous collection of varied, often surprisingly thoughtful, even melancholic, songs is up there with such jewels of the genre as `The Band`, Free`s first two LPs, and the Stones` Sticky Fingers. In different ways, they have a lot in common with all three of those bands. The late, truly great Lowell George had a slightly Jaggerish voice, if more authentically soulful-bluesy, they echoed Free`s spareness and awareness of dynamics, and like The Band they wrote terrific songs with idiosyncratic lyrics.
And they could all play their socks off.
The Feat can be sleazy, sexy, soulful, bluesy, insinuating, funky as hell, exciting as anything, mad as a bag of snakes, surprising - but rarely predictable, bland, or less than an adornment to any record collection.
I wept sad, angry tears when the unique Lowell G died in `79. I loved the man. Far too young...
Their fans included Dylan, The Stones, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Page, Plant - and me. Lowell, often with other Feat members, played backup for just about everybody - except me.
They were a magisterially fine band and this is Little Feat at their all too brief peak. Perhaps their one perfect album.
Turkey, my arse.

This album is a wonderful album with very strong songs but it is a band still finding its way. Little Feat at this stage had a great deal in common with the Stones except where the Stones were fizzling out after 'Exile on Main Street' the best of Little Feat was just around the corner. Willin' Trouble, Easy to Slip hit the highs as well as Ritchie Hayward's drumming on Apolitical blues but Lowell's voice is much better on the later albums with the exception being 'I've been the one' which is off the first which still makes the hairs on my receding head stand on end. Each album has it's own distinctive approach that avoids the formulaic and sets about experimentation with funk, jazz country, re-recording some songs in different ways. If you give Little Feat more than one spin you will be hooked for life as I am.

I have always known of this band, but for some reason have never had it in my collection. I am big fan 70's rock music especially the likes of Stephen Stills, Big Star and The Band. After seeing some youtube footage I started with this one. The ablum contains fantastic muscianship from a clearly very tight band. From rock, country, blues and some very funky basslines and not mention Lowell George's southern tinged with a hint of tobacco vocals this is a fine album that is getting better with each listen. Looking forward to discovering more.

As a big fan of little feat l am very impressed by this CD.
The fact that it has teenage nervous breakdown on it makes it perfect.
