5.0 out of 5 stars Essential & Original Little Feat 5CD Bargain Box!!, 2 April 2012
This review is from: Original Album Series: Little Feat / Sailin' Shoes / Dixie Chicken / Feats Don't Fail Me Now / The Last Record Album (Audio CD)
An earlier, very detailed review highlighting the fact the music on these 5 discs are not remastered and as such don't sound up to scratch really put me off going anywhere near this box set, but after buying, and being very impressed with the Tom Waits, Tim Buckley, Duke Ellington and Randy Newman box sets in the same Original Album Series I just had to get a copy of the Little Feat one and hear it for myself.

There is no doubt it would have been great to hear all these discs remastered but I do not think any of these 'originals' sound anywhere near as disappointing as that very detailed earlier dated review suggests.

Like the other box sets I've heard in this series the sound on these CDs is not a problem at all and probably as close to the original vinyl sound as anyone could reasonably wish for. In fact I think the first CD/LP "Little Feat" in this set actually sounds better than the original vinyl - probably because it has been (unlike the other 4CDs) remixed by Bob Kovach.

I also have Little Feat's more expensive 4CD (remastered) compilation 'Hotcakes & Outtakes' box and enjoy hearing and comparing the selection of tracks included on it that are also on this 'Original Album Series', but listening to both box sets (with their different masterings) I'd say the bottom line is you can't have too many versions of the Warner Brothers recordings made by Lowell George's Little Feat and that this 'Original Album Series' Box cannot be beaten on value for money (or musical content).
