Little Feat Time Loves A Hero 180g LP
High Quality Pure Analogue 180g Virgin Vinyl LP!
There are many dreamed-of and a number of dreamy records which reflect the
American idea of freedom from a musical point of view. One of these was
presented by frontman Lowell George and his superb group Little Feat in what the
musical experts praised as a "symbiosis of anarchistic primitive folklore and
rock finesse" (rororo Rocklexikon). The high standard which the musicians
maintain over the two sides of the LP is established with "Hi Roller", a funky,
energetic opening number. The multi-part title number "Times Loves A Hero"
follows on with a more subdued tempo but with great dive and sophisticated
percussion, which proves itself to be the most important element and governs the
Little Feat conjures with traditional forms, gets you on the dance floor with
"Old Folks Boogie" and serves up a tasty mixture of honky-tonk and blues, which
is refined with powerful guitar solos.
Just like a picture puzzle, rhythmic figures and figurettes dart hither and
thither out of the background of this handcrafted and stalwart filigree rock
("Red Streamliner", "Keepin‘ Up With The Joneses"). But simplicity and softness
is also possible: The message in "Missin‘ You" needs nothing more than chords on
the acoustic guitar and men’s voices with a southern sound.
This Speakers Corner LP was remastered using pure analogue components only, from
the master tapes through to the cutting head.
