Album of the Day
The L.A. music scene was a busy one in the early 1970s, and even a band as talented as Little Feat could get lost in the shuffle. After their first two albums for Warner Bros. earned raves from critics and fellow musicians – but relatively meager sales – the group reorganized, bringing in a new guitarist, bassist and additional percussionist. It was just the kick in the pants Little Feat needed; the album that followed, DIXIE CHICKEN, may be the Feat's finest. Featuring some of founder Lowell George's most memorable songs (including “Two Trains,” “Fat Man In The Bathtub” and the title track), and a funky New Orleans feel, the collection is both relaxed and sophisticated. Lowell George was born on this day in 1945, and we'll mark the occasion by serving up some DIXIE CHICKEN.
