Waiting For Columbus [Live Deluxe]
While Little Feat didn't produce any gold singles during their '70s heyday, among musicians, Lowell George and company were the gold standard for roots-oriented rock. As remarkable as their studio albums were, the consensus was that they were even better live, and one listen to WAITING FOR COLUMBUS makes that easy to believe. The double album was recorded in London and Washington, D.C. over seven nights in August 1977, and features outstanding performances of such Feat faves as “Fat Man In The Bathtub,” “Dixie Chicken” and “Willin',” with stellar support from the Tower Of Power horn section. Rhino's Deluxe Edition of the concert classic adds seven previously unreleased recordings from those 1977 shows plus three more originally included on band best-of HOY HOY. Frontman Lowell George was born on this day in 1945, and in his honor we'll cue up WAITING FOR COLUMBUS.
