Album of the Day
Waiting for Columbus
The platinum-certified double album WAITING FOR COLUMBUS cemented Little Feat’s reputation as one of the premier live bands of the 1970s. Touching on songs from all six of the studio albums the group released between 1971 and 1977, the dynamic performances showcase the sextet’s inimitable fusion of blues, country, jazz and New Orleans R&B on signature tracks like “Fat Man In The Bathtub,” “Oh Atlanta” and “Sailin’ Shoes.” With singer-guitarist Lowell George front and center, the band recorded several shows in the U.K. and U.S. during their 1977 summer tour with the Tower of Power horn section in support. Out now, WAITING FOR COLUMBUS: SUPER DELUXE EDITION adds three previously unreleased concerts from that tour to a newly remastered version of the classic original set.
