Dixie Chicken

Bildergebnis für vintage bands

Back in 1973, a few years before punk and new wave appeared it was hard to find music that was different from the mainstream. One of those who gave us another kind of music was Little Feat. Formed by Lowell George, a former member of Frank Zappa's Mother's of Invention they played a very unique kind of country-rock, blues and boogie. Little Feat were always a live band. I saw them in the mid 70s and was fascinated (but I was more fascinated a few years later when I saw those new punk and new wave bands). In these days Little Feat were one of those bands you could agree with other people who were concerned to new music (Wishbone Ash was one of the others). Anyway, their music last over 40 years now and sometimes I play them when I am in a sentimental mood and their songs and arrangements have still a little magic inside.

I'm envious that you saw them Walter.

I saw a version of them in 2000 at Hopeton House near Edunburgh at a gig which included Steve Earle and Emmylou Harris.Didn't see much of them as I had to leave to get my bus!

It is sad to year CC. I think you missed something very good but I can understand that you've been ruled by urban traffic system.
