I'm watching Little Feat on the German TV Show "Rockpalast" DVD right now.

Lowell is belting out "Dixie Chicken" and playing Slide Guitar.

"I seen the Bright lights of Memphis"

RIP My Friend

Little Feat was one of those bands I was very fortunate to catch early on. First saw them after Dixie Chicken came out, in a small club and then many times afterward with Lowell. My older sister and her friends were LF fanatics and used to party with the band, back in those days ('74-'79). That tribute show looks great, too bad I won't be able to make it.

I just saw the current version of Little Feat in Sonora at the Fire On The Mountain Blues Festival last Saturday. It was also my first time catching Sonny Landreth...he is so good lots of nice scoots out that day.

I just got a hold of a copy of his final show, which was June 28, 1979 at Lisner Auditorium, Washington DC, the night before he died.

He was on tour, promoting his current solo LP THANKS I'LL EAT IT HERE. It's an audience recording but sounds great if you listen to it carefully. It's amazing that the show was documented, and you can't help feeling a bit strange that he would be dead just hours after the recording was made.

Here's the setlist:
Fat Man In The Bathtub
What Do You Want The Girl To Do
Cant Stand The Rain
Easy Money
Rocket In My Pocket
A Apolitical Blues
Two Trains
Dixie Chicken
20 Million Things
Roll Em Easy
Willin
Spanish Moon

Was fortunate myself to see Lowell & Feat twice at the Fox in Atlanta. Once with Pablo Cruise opening & another time with John Hall (Orleans-fame). Also, had tickets to see him in Atlanta solo but he passed before the show. Also have seen the post-Lowell Feat twice. Lakewood & a free show last year in Woodstock-thanks Pat, Syd & gang for getting us there!!!!!

...it's a hype-case boogie, gonna boogie my sneakers away........

I was really lucky to see Little Feat as many times as I did back in the 70's. Seemed like 2 out of every 3 concerts I'd go to, Little Feat was on the bill. (I think I saw them about 10-15 times) I got VERY familiar with their material very quickly and collected each album as it was released (had to go backwards from "Dixie Chicken", THEN got them as released.) I kind of was the "Little Feat Ambassador" among my circle of friends back then.

I was in music heaven on October 18, 1975 when I saw the ABB, Dave Mason Band and Little Feat outdoors on the UC Santa Barbara football field. What an awesome day of music!

I was very surprised & saddened when Lowell passed.

I also was lucky to see the tribute/benefit concert at the GW Forum in 1979.

Me too! Love Little Feat and have enjoyed them live recently but it's not the same ol' Feat without Lowell.

when i was in college back in the late 70's little feat was booked to play the college auditorium...i had never heard any of their music before and i remember my friend telling me they were better in concert than the grateful dead ...which was quite a statement back then....somehow my friend got a hold of 2 4th row center tickets the night of the show....they had the tower of power horn section playing with them...in fact,i think this might have been the tour from which waiting for columbus was taken....anyway,as i said earlier it turned out to be the best live show i have seen to this day....truly incredible...

Lowell was gone before I arrived sadly but I still enjoy the current band's work. Maybe one day a Feat DVD will surface from those years, but until then I'll settle for youtube clips and albums.

Unfortunately, I only saw them once, and that was 78 or 79, one of the best shows I'd ever seen, I think Norton-Buffalo opened up for them...anyhow, it was fantastic. I believe George died shortly thereafter. I saw a later version of the band and really did not care to much for it. His personality and stage presence, voice and antics really made the whole package.

He is missed.
