Sailin' Shoes demonstrates just how briskly Little Feat was developing in
their early 1970s formative years. A pronounced step up from the Southern
California quartet's critically praised 1971 debut, it's not as fully realized
as the Feat's 1973 zenith, Dixie Chicken. But it's not far behind, and that's
saying something. The final recording made by the original quartet (the band
swelled to six members after founding bassist and Mothers of Invention alumni
Roy Estrada split), Little Feat circa 1972 is a lean, energetic outfit. "Cold,
Cold, Cold," "Tripe Face Boogie," "Apolitical Blues," and "Teenage Nervous
Breakdown" are blunter rockers than what would follow. Lowell George's title
track and Bill Payne's "Got No Shadow" and "Cat Fever," meanwhile, presage the
more limber direction the group was headed.
Here’s your chance to own all four essential Little Feat titles —
(MOBGCD786), 1973's funky
Dixie Chicken (MOBGCD784),
and Little Feat (MOBGCD770).
