Little Feat - Waiting for Columbus Click here to see this CD at!

By Sam Sutherland

This 1978 live album remains a serious contender for one of the best live rock albums ever etched, standing toe to toe with live classics from the Band, Allman Brothers, and the Who. Recorded during concerts in London and Washington, D.C., Waiting for Columbus vividly captures the L.A. sextet at a crossroads between its swampy mid-'70s fusion of blues, country, and New Orleans R&B, and the more eclectic jazz accents introduced later in the decade. If the late Lowell George's influence had diminished in the studio, his presence dominates here in rowdy, righteous vocals, the mercurial tang of his indelible slide guitar, and a set-list laced with his songs. While still riveting in its initial, abridged CD release, this remastered two-disc edition expands and resequences the songs into a full concert set, with encore. Two deleted tracks are further augmented by 10 additional performances to make this a definitive edition of a classic album that really will "boogie your speakers away."

"This has been released in an anniversary CD edition that puts Sides 1-3 of the vinyl release onto Disc 1. Side 4 plus additional tracks that were recorded in the concerts from which Waiting for Columbus was created comprise Disc 2. I waited a long time for this...I refused to buy the edited version. I have owned four copies of the vinyl release, having either worn out or given away my copies over the years."


"Kudos to you for the fine review! Waiting for Columbus is simply the finest live rock album EVER! It has recently been re-released with added tracks that just kill! This wonderful band has withstood the test of time and continue to make great music...and they are incredibly friendly to their fans!!"

"This album is great! It provides "good time" listenin' any time of the day. It is also great for a back yard bbq or for just hangin out and havin a good time. Be a good rascal and crank up the Feat!"
