This review is from: Hellzapoppin (Audio CD)
I love this band.
In the mid 70's, Little Feat were one of the most inventive and under rated of all of the Californian based bands.
I guess they were over looked in the mass popularity stakes in favour of The Eagles. They never quite managed to write a song with the universal appeal of "Hotel California", but in terms of general musicianship and song writing, Little Feat were light years ahead of their more popular cousins.
(I am also a fan of The Eagles, their early material is particularly great, but Little Feat were better).
The best Feat live album is Electrif Lycanthrope, an official bootleg album that Lowell George himself mixed. It is quite superb, you used to be able to get it from [...] as a free download, but I haven't checked recently if it is still up there. Hellzapoppin is not quite as good as Lycanthrope, but its excellent nevertheless.
If you want one CD that sums up this band, this one would be a good one to get.
