Little Feat - Join the Band
CD Review by Jud Conway on 8/28/2008   

More than thirty-eight years after the arrival of their nascent self-titled debut, Little Feat revisits an eclectic mix of classic originals and favorite cover tunes. Join the Band features contributions from a stellar host of the band’s musical peers, including Jimmy Buffett, Dave Matthews, Vince Gill, Chris Robinson, Emmylou Harris, Bob Seger, Brooks & Dunn, slide guitar great Sonny Landreth, former Little Feat lead vocalist Craig Fuller and late founder Lowell George’s talented daughter Inara George.

Little Feat is best known for creating a distinctive sound that blends rock ‘n’ roll, funk, country and swamp boogie. On Join the Band, current members Bill Payne (keyboards), Richie Hayward (drums), Paul Barrere (guitar), Sam Clayton (percussion), Kenny Gradney (bass), Fred Tackett (guitar), and Shaun Murphy (vocals) entrust guest artists with full creative control to great success. Dave Matthews’s vocals on "Fat Man in the Bathtub" add a unique flavor not present on the original track. Vince Gill’s acoustic guitar solo on "Spanish Moon" is extremely complimentary to Craig Fuller’s equally-stunning lead vocals. Emmylou Harris adds her signature lilting harmonies to Little Feat’s classic "Sailin’ Shoes."

Jud Conway (Head Writer) and Ed Van Wicklen (Owner/Chief Editor) sat down to discuss the band’s new CD and upcoming Summer/Fall 2008 tour with Little Feat guitarist Fred Tackett. (Read the Interview Here)
