Sunday Cinema | Little Feat Live In Germany - 1977

In 1979 the rock world took a big hit when Lowell George passed away. George was one of the founding members of Little Feat, a band responsible for many incredible tunes such as "Dixie Chicken," "Skin It Back," "Fat Man In The Bathtub" and "Spanish Moon."

Little Feat released one of the best live albums in the history of rock, Waiting for Columbus, in 1978. The album was recorded just months after Little Feat visited Germany in 1977 for a performance that aired on German TV show Rockpalast. The 70+ minutes of footage that aired on Rockpalast is the closest we’ll get to a visual version of WfC.

Each member of Little Feat shows their value from Lowell’s earnest "Willin'" vocals to Paul Barrere’s angular lead work in "Skin It Back" to galloping rhythms pounded by the one-two attack of drummer Richie Hayward and percussionist Sam Clayton during "Fat Man" to Kenny Gradney holding it down for "All That You Dream" and Bill Payne’s barrelhouse piano work on "Old Folks Boogie." Take a peek:
