Little Feat, Skin It Back (DVD)Little Feat, Skin It Back (DVD)
Eagle Rock, Sept. 22, 2009

In 1977, Little Feat performed on German TV’s favored musical playground Rockpalast. Filmed at the Grugahalle in Essen, this concert was shot just days before the recording of their renowned live album Waiting For Columbus. Featuring the band’s classic line-up, late vocalist/guitarist Lowell George leads the band – vocalist/guitarist Paul Barrere, vocalist/keyboardist Bill Payne, percussionist Sam Clayton, bassist Kenny Gradney, and drummer Richard Hayward – through the 11-song performance.

Track Listing:
1.) Skin It Back
2.) Fat Man In The Bathtub
3.) Oh, Atlanta
4.) Day At The Dog Races
5.) All That You Dream
6.) Old Folks’ Boogie
7.) Dixie Chicken
8.) Tripe Face Boogie
9.) Feats Don’t Fail Me Now
10.) Willin’
11.) Rocket In My Pocket

Bonus Tracks:
1.) Old Folks’ Boogie
2.) Fat Man In The Bathtub
3.) Rock ‘n’ Roll Doctor
4.) Skin It Back / Fat Man In The Bathtub
5.) Oh, Atlanta
6.) Willin’

The band’s blend of top-notch musicianship and earthy, organic groove made them musical staples. This is perfectly captured on the Skin It Back DVD. I almost hate to say I was blown away, but I was. This DVD in all honesty surpassed my expectations. It is a great DVD, one that I will watch over and over. While not straight out blues, it features Little Feats southern influences, blues and Dixie-land boogie, with R&B, folk and rock into jam band perfection with a bit of funk to it. I would highly recommend this DVD as a must have for any music fan on your Christmas List! This easily gets a 5 on the STLBluesometer!!! (Publisher's note - they tear it up live, too!)

Peace and Love
