Easygoing 1973 Album is Feat's Finest Studio Hour
Stuffed with first-rate songwriting, and humorous lyrics Dixie Chicken is Little Feat's pinnacle studio album. The easygoing 1973 classic benefits from the arrival of three new musicians: guitarist Paul Barrere, percussionist Sam Clayton, and bassist Kenny Gradney.
Lowell George is at the top of his game. Standards such as the acoustic Roll Um Easy, keyboard-drenched Kiss It Off, and adroit title track hook the listener from the start, as does the timeless Fat Man in the Bathtub, a tune that continues George's knack for twisted storytelling. Legendary New Orleans arranger Allen Toussaint contributes the intoxicating On Your Way Down, which the sextet turns into a slow dark blues that ripples with rock overtones. Thick grooves and sultry riffs abound throughout this brilliant set.
Several distinguished guests contribute to the party: Bonnie Raitt, Bonnie Bramlett, ex-Rolling Stone Mick Taylor, and multi-instrumentalist Fred Tackett among them. In every sense, Dixie Chicken is the epitome of early 70s American rock and roll - funny, smart, relaxing, cohesive, melodic, smooth, stylish, engaging.
