Default 1973-Little Feat Live!

I've been a fan of Little Feat for more than 50 years. In 1973 I got to see them (with Bonnie Raitt opening) at a small nightclub in Pittsburgh. It was the best concert I've ever experienced. For many years I've wished that there could have been a recording of that concert, but of course that was a time before cell phones and quality portable recording equipment existed.

Recently, I was surprised and thrilled to find this recording of Little Feat performing live at Ultrasonic Studios in Hempstead, NY on 4-10-1973, less than a month after the concert that I attended in Pittsburgh. The set they performed at Ultrasonic is almost the same (albeit shorter and without 2 encores) as the one I heard them perform. If you're a Little Feat fan, and especially if you're a fan of the live Waiting For Columbus album, and have craved to hear more of their fantastic live sound I highly recommend giving this a listen. If you're not familiar with Little Feat you might find that you'll enjoy hearing one of the best live performance rock bands of any era. For me it's like entering a time machine and going back to one of the most enjoyable musical experiences of my life.

I was/am also a big fan, both pre and post Lowell. My first show wasn't until a few years after this one, can't wait to hear what they sounded like in '73.

Terrific band, and Lowell was...just...not of this world, apparently! Love Little Feat, from decades back...

Still miss the Fat Man in the Bathtub!

Will take the time to give this a listen when I can... thanks for posting!

I know what I'm listening to tonight. One of my absolute favorite bands...I think they are criminally underrated.

I saw the band in the early-mid 70s at a small college in PA. The band I was in did several of their tunes. Always/still a big fan (though, TBH, Old Folks Boogie hits a little too close to home these days ). Good times...
