I guess there are some LITTLE FEAT purists who aren't into this album… Their loss, really. I think this only solo album he made is his best, most cohesive album, packed with heartfelt (and heartbreaking) songs such as "20 Million Things To Do" "Find A River" a fine rendition of "Can't Stand The Rain" (which blows Tina Turner's version away) and the irresistible Mexican-flavored "Cheek To Cheek", with a beautiful, full-on mariachi band backing Lowell up on some of his most soaring vocal work. He had such a great voice and such an infectious sense of fun and humor, all of which comes through loud and clear on this record, with great song after great song. The only bogus tune on it is "Himmler's Ring," but even it sounds easy on the ears. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED… a little-known late-'70s gem that was recorded shortly before Lowell George's untimely death.

Please note that this is an old but fine rip (made with an old EAC version) coming from my archives on external hard disc, accompanied by only a front cover, back cover and a disc scan.

Personnel:

Although they do not play together on any single track, Richie Hayward and Bill Payne, both members of Little Feat play on the album. George was also able to call on the services of top-class session players and backing vocalists.
