Product description

Product Description

In retrospect, it's not surprising that Little Feat are on such blistering form during this 1975 WCBN broadcast, transmitted from the prestigious Orpheum Theatre in Boston on that year s Halloween Night. Already renowned as a magnificent live act, the band had been honing their already-considerable skills to razor-sharp perfection during a consecutive 5-night residency at Paul s Mall - a smaller club in the city - immediately prior to moving to the larger, 2,500-seat Orpheum for this concert. The North American tour of which these shows were part, was in support of Little Feat s fifth LP, The Last Record Album , released just days after this gig. Live versions of four tracks - Day Or Night, All That You Dream, Romance Dance and Long Distance Love - are featured here. By this time, Little Feat had been together for six years. Guitarist, singer and songwriter Lowell George had been fired from Frank Zappa s Mothers of Invention in 1969 for - allegedly - writing a song about drugs (Willin ). Zappa was vehemently anti-drugs. Lowell teamed up with keyboardist Bill Payne (who had auditioned for the Mothers too) and the duo recruited bassist Roy Estrada (another ex-Mother) and drummer Richie Hayward (from George s previous band, The Factory), to form Little Feat. The Mothers connection turned out to be beneficial however when Zappa, differences notwithstanding, recommended Little Feat to Warner Brothers, who signed them. The band also often used cover artist Neon Park, who had painted Zappa s Weasels Ripped My Flesh. Lowell George was injured during the recording of Little Feat s eponymous debut album in 1971 and slide guitarist Ry Cooder was drafted in to deputise on Willin . The song has since become a standard with Country rock artists having been covered by The Byrds, The Flying Burrito Brothers, Linda Ronstadt, Steve Earle and Commander Cody amongst others. Little Feat s first two albums were firmly rooted in the Blues, with the first featuring a medley of Howlin Wolf numbers, Forty-Four Blues and How Many More Years. Released a year later, Sailin Shoes, was another highly acclaimed release. Live versions of A Apolitical Blues, Cold Cold Cold, Tripe Face Boogie, Willin (the song had been re-recorded with Lowell on slide guitar) and Teenage Nervous Breakdown are all included in this broadcast set. Unfortunately - at this stage - critical success had yet to translate into sales, and the band split up. They quickly reformed - Estrada was replaced by Kenny Gradney and the line-up expanded to include second guitarist Paul Barrère and percussionist Sam Clayton. The new members brought new influences and the group s Blues roots were now tempered with New Orleans style R n B and funkier elements. The first recorded evidence of this was the 1973-released Dixie Chicken album (Two Trains, Fat Man In The Bathtub, and Dixie Chicken are featured). The anthemic title track is a stone cold classic and undoubtedly the band s best known recording. The band s fourth album, Feats Don t Fail Me Now was released in 1974. Three of its strongest numbers are represented here - the irrepressible Oh, Atlanta, Skin It Back and Spanish Moon. Notably the record also included new recordings of Cold Cold Cold and Triple Face Boogie - performed back-to-back as a medley during this performance. Subsequent to The Last Record Album, Little Feat only completed one more studio album (1977 s Time Loves A Hero ), before the untimely death of Lowell George from a heart attack - whilst working on the posthumously released Down On The Farm . But thankfully recordings like this remain to remind us how great they were. So crank up that amp and witness the mighty roar of Little Feat in their prime, with Lowell and his compadres firing on all cylinders!

"HELLZAPPOPIN'" is 15 track 79 minute live concert import CD on the All Access label. The concert was originally broadcast on Boston's WCBN FM Halloween Night October 31, 1975, and features the classic LITTLE FEAT line-up of Lowell George (guitar & vocals), Bill Payne (keyboards & vocals), Richie Hayward (drums & vocals), Paul Barrere (guitar & vocals), Kenny Grandey (bass) and Sam Clayton (percussion & vocals). The band were on a North American tour supporting their recently released fifth long-player 'THE LAST RECORD ALBUM.' Two songs performed that night, "Walkin' All Night" and "On Your Way Down" are not on the disc, otherwise the set list is in chronological order. The songs performed are:

1. Two Trains
2. Skin It Back
3. Fat Man In The Bathtub
4. A Apolitical Blues
5. Oh Atlanta
6. Day Or Night
7. All That You Dream
8. Romance Dance
9. Long Distance Love (some sources erroneously list this as a cover of Muddy Water's "Long Distance Call")
10. Cold Cold Cold>
11. Dixie Chicken>
12. Tripe Face Boogie
13. Willin' (encore)
14. Teenage Nervous Breakdown (encore)
15. Spanish Moon (encore)

The sound quality is decent and seems to have been taken from a first generation source, after a rough start the mix improves as it goes along, de rigueur for live radio concerts. Recorded at the 2,500 seat Orpheum Theatre the band had just finished a five night residency at Paul's Mall, a smaller Boston club (those were the days!). Coupled with the fact it was Halloween night, the boys are red-hot and ready to shake the rafters, egged on by an obviously stoked audience.

Great live show by one of the greatest live bands of the 70s. Off an FM radio broadcast - original tapes or cassette off a tuner? - but sounds good enough and stunningly clear for the most part. Almost 80 minutes of music including some songs rarely appearing on their live output - Long Distance Love, Day or Night, Romance Dance etc. At the top of their game and sound like they're having fun too.

Great versions of some fab old favourites, amazingly hot atmosphere, good singing from the newbies, and some stirring guitar breaks.

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.
