In 2011 Edsel of the UK acquired some of the ‘WEA Catalogue’ and began releasing value-for-money 1CD and 2CD album sets from that vast repertoire. So far I've reviewed Hall & Oates, Greenslade and 4 of their Doobie Brothers releases – and they’ve been great on all fronts. This 2CD Little Feat set is part of that reissue campaign. Here are the farmyard details…

UK released 26 March 2012 (12 April in the USA) – "Time Loves A Hero/Down On The Farm" by LITTLE FEAT on Edsel EDSD 2113 (Barcode 740155211332) offers 2 straightforward LP transfers onto 2CDs and breaks down as follows:

Disc 1 (35:29 minutes):
1. Hi Roller
2. Time Loves A Hero
3. Rocket In My Pocket
4. Old Folks Boogie [Side 2]
5. Day At The Dog Races
6. Red Streamliner
7. New Delhi Freight Train
8. Keepin' up With The Joneses
9. Missin' You
Tracks 1 to 9 are the album "Time Loves A Hero" - released May 1977 in the USA on Warner Brothers BS 3015 and in the UK on Warner Brothers K 56349

Disc 2 (37:32 minutes):
1. Down On The Farm
2. Six feet Of Snow
3. Perfect Imperfection
4. Kokomo
5. Be One Now
6. Straight From The Heart [Side 2]
7. Front Page News
8. Wake Up Dreaming
9. Feel The Groove
Tracks 1 to 9 are the album "Down On The Farm" - released November 1979 in the USA on Warner Brothers HS 3345 and in the UK on Warner Brothers K 56667

The 20-page booklet is substantial – it features the front and rear artwork for each album, the lyrics, reproductions of the original LP labels, colour photos of the band and a new essay by ALAN ROBINSON.

Both CDs in this package have been sonically improved with remastering.

Down On The Farm in particular has benefited greatly from this process and now sounds better than it ever did, and all the tracks have stood the test of time remarkably well. Only three tracks from this album were previously available as remasters, (on Hotcakes & Outtakes) and one of those three tracks was the Hoy- Hoy! version of 'Front Page News', which is a completely different take/version to the one originally on Down On The Farm.

Up until now only five of the nine tracks on Time Loves A Hero were available as remasters (on Hotcakes & Outtakes), so it's great to hear this entire album as well with a complimentary up-to-date remastering.

This Euro double CD is very well put together, includes an attractive, colourful booklet.

Recommended.

I love both of these albums, so to see them both in onebox at the price I paid for it was a no brainer. I never owned Down on the Farm on cd before, so at least it was not buying twice for the sake of it. The other big attraction here was the remastering. None of Little Feats studio albums have got a stand alone remastering, sure a load of tracks were done for the Hotcakes and Outtakes box set, but no stand alone albums, thereby missing out some great songs.

The sound here is superb, best I have heard either of these albums, even on vinyl.

First class!

I snapped this up when I saw it was a two-in-one. Well...it isn`t exactly. It`s an excellently packaged 2-CD reissue of Little Feat`s last two albums, but the shame is that they are both on the short side, and would therefore have fitted onto one disc. Why do companies do this? Who wouldn`t rather put on a 75-minute CD and relax without needing to get up and replace the disc after about half an hour?
The booklet, with its well-chosen pics and better than usual notes by Alan Robinson,
is a bonus, and it`s certainly good to have these two albums together, though there is so much that is less than their best here that perhaps a single-CD compilation taken from them both would have been the better option.
I love Lowell George - cried when I heard he`d died, back in 1979 - and to me he was Little Feat. His singing, guitar playing and songwriting were almost peerless in that decade, and on a song like Rock and Roll Doctor (from Feats Don`t Fail Me Now, one of their finest albums) or Cold, Cold, Cold (from the equally great Sailin` Shoes) all three came together in miraculous accord. He could outsing and outplay the very best, because he was just that. I place him up there with Paul Rodgers, John Fogerty, and The Band`s Richard Manuel.
These two valedictory records are a mixed bag. Lowell was absent some of the time, or simply didn`t have his heart in it anymore. He was supposedly going to reform the band without key members Bill Payne and Paul Barrere, which would have restored the rootsier sound of their earlier and best music - one can hear the rot setting in here, with AOR workouts that are listenable but as far from the heyday of the Feat as some of the Stones` later stuff is from Out Of Our Heads or Exile On Main Street.
Highlights are few.

Time Loves A Hero/Down On The Farm, great package, but I don't think the quality is as good as my Vinyl versions. Down On The Farm in particular, does not sound that great to me. I feel that these two releases have been sidelined, or forgotten in some way. Down On The Farm I think is the better one, because Lowell George has more songs on this album. Front Page News I think is the standout track. Kokomo, Be One Now, Perfect Imperfection, Straight From The Heart, Six Feet Of Snow are all wonderful songs. the rest however are not as good, sort of filler material. Little Feat made fantastic music. I really do feel that Down On The Farm needs to be reappraised by music critics, because it is not the turkey that people think it is. Time Loves A Hero is good, but not in the same league as their earlier work. The Production is too Glossy, typical of the late seventies, this does not sit well with the band in my opinion. I also think they could have included some outtake material, I have some great versions of Rocket In My Pocket. A proper Box Set is something that needs to be addressed. Bill Payne and Paul Barrere were taking most of the lions share where the writing credits were concerned, therefore, the material suffered as a result. they went in a direction that Lowell was not happy with. A Day At The Dog Races was one of those tracks. Lowell thought it sounded like the band Weather Report, although that is no bad thing, considering that Little Feat always tried to come up with new ways of Recording and Arranging. lets hope that Little Feat get inducted into The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, it is long overdue. they have influenced so many bands over the years. all their music needs to be repressed on Vinyl. Sailin' Shoes and Dixie Chicken have been re released on 180 gram Vinyl a few years ago.Read more ›
