Album review

Little Feat

Little Feat aficionados are the sort to have scoured the globe for bootlegs, so will enjoy these collections of rare '70s material. Raw Tomatos is the pick of the vine since it includes original Lowell George items like "Crack In Your Door", a superbly sparse "Fat Man In The Bathtub" and a funked-up "Strawberry Flats". The live Ripe brace may be more familiar, although it's worth picking up on for terrific versions of old Feat classics like "Teenage Nervous Breakdown", "Dixie Chicken" and the timeless "Apolitical Blues". The quality control includes decent liners and updated Neon Park artwork for good measure.
