Some Summer Country Rock

Continuing the current run of oldies but goodies here is some Country Rock for you - just the thing for these balmy summer evenings.
It comes form one of the best exponents of the genre Little Feat with a couple of tracks from their eponymous 1971 debut album.
Roy Estrada on bass, Bill Payne on keyboards, Richie Hayward on drums and the dulcet tones of the late great Lowell George on vocals.
On the second track they are joined by the pedal steel maestro Sneaky Pete Kleinow of Flying Burrito Brothers fame.
I always thought that they were from the deep South but it turns out that they were from California. Los Angeles to be precise.

Little Feat - Truck Stop Girl

Little Feat -I've Been the One


  1. Good to hear some Little Feat round these parts. I've got a few of their albums on the shelf, but not the debut for some reason.

  2. I've just checked the collection and, like The Swede, this album does not feature. That will be changing (let me tell that and tell you no more!)

    1. Is this a good time to say that these are the best two songs on the album?!

    2. What?!?!? You don't think "Willin'" is top????!!!

    3. I'm with Lynchie. Willing is amazing.
