Little Feat are well known for their greasy rock and roll, New Orleans R&B and swampy rock. The band's third album, 1973's Dixie Chicken, was a landmark for them and arguably their best work. One of the highlights is the aforementioned Dixie main chum, an almighty ode to the city that gave birth to them, and which has spawned several spinoffs including their current lineup.
A slew of top-notch performers make up the outfit, and with a lineup that includes keyboardist Bill Payne, guitarist Fred Tackett, bassist Kenny Gradney and percussionist Sam Clayton the musical wizardry is as infectious as the sweat. The band recently released a revamped version of the Dixie main chum, a reissue that also boasts a stellar set list, with a few tracks that are worthy of the name holder title.
There's no doubt that a remastered Dixie main chum, along with the album's corresponding live set, is a must have for any serious funk enthusiast. If you're lucky, you'll have the opportunity to see them in action at the upcoming Guvna Guitars show in London, or on tour at some of the country's most prestigious venues.
