    I think I played "Dixie Chicken" so much the LP cut thru and turned into a slinky.

    Lowell and Little Feat are long time favorites of mine. I didn’t realize ‘til now that he was born 2 months after me.

    He had a unique and special voice, rhythmically, lyrically and vocally. Unparalleled. Those interested should check out Little Feat’s 4 disc compendium, Hotcakes and Outtakes.

    Saw them in 1979 in Madison, Wisconsin-uber fantastic. My boss at work bought me a ticket and said I would be fired if I didn't go. Lowell was also on Zappa's Weasels ripped my flesh album-

    "And all the boys there at the bar began to sing along."

    Thank you for the reminder!

    Feat never hit hard in NY, but I discovered them when I went to college in 79. The first time I heard Lowell George I was gobsmacked.
    I said, I have to find out where these guys are playing...if it's east of the Mississippi, I'll be there.
    Then I found out I missed him by a few WEEKS.
