Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered two CD set containing a pair of albums from the Blues/Rock outfit. Since their formation in 1969, Little Feat have played an eclectic blend of Rock 'n' Roll, Blues, R&B, Boogie, Country, Folk, Gospel, Soul, Funk and Jazz Fusion influences. These two albums, from 1977 and 1979, were Little Feat's last two studio albums with Lowell George, Down On The Farm being completed after George's death in June 1979. Edsel.

In 2011 Edsel of the UK acquired some of the 'WEA Catalogue' and began releasing value-for-money 1CD and 2CD album sets from that vast repertoire. So far I've reviewed Hall & Oates, Greenslade and 4 of their Doobie Brothers releases - and they've been great on all fronts. This 2CD Little Feat set is part of that reissue campaign...

UK-released 26 March 2012 (12 April in the USA) - Edsel EDSD 2113 breaks down as follows:

Disc 1 (35:29 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 9 are the album "Time Loves A Hero" released May 1977 in the USA on Warner Brothers BS 3015 and in the UK on Warner Brothers K 56349

Disc 2 (37:32 minutes):
Tracks 1 to 9 are the album "Down On The Farm" released November 1979 in the USA on Warner Brothers HS 3345 and in the UK on Warner Brothers K 56667

The 20-page booklet is substantial - it features the front and rear artwork for each album, the lyrics, reproductions of the original LP labels, colour photos of the band and a new essay by ALAN ROBINSON. The mastering was done by PHIL KINRADE at Alchemy Studios in London (it doesn't say it's been remastered) - and the sound on both discs is excellent - punchy, clear and to my ears improved on what went before. Also - they're pitched at less than mid-price - so this release offers a lot of music for very little lay out.

Fans will instantly recognize that these are the last two Little Feat studio albums featuring founder member LOWELL GEORGE. "Time Loves A Hero" was released amidst major band acrimony about direction and suffers the most from lack of decent songs and George's wit and voice. Completed after Lowell's untimely death in June 1979 aged only 34 - "Down At The Farm" came out in late 1979 and is a surprisingly good set - especially re-listening to it in retrospect.

I disagree with the previous reviewer. "Time Loves a Hero" is not a "dog". Au contraire, it is one of their best, most musically adventerous, and innovative albums. "Down on the Farm" was my least favorite Feat album but the re-master changed my mind. Still not their best, but nice.

Both CDs in this package have been sonically improved with remastering.

Down On The Farm in particular has benefited greatly from this process and now sounds better than it ever did, and all the tracks have stood the test of time remarkably well. Only three tracks from this album were previously available as remasters, (on Hotcakes & Outtakes) and one of those three tracks, the Hoy- Hoy! version of 'Front Page News', is a completely different take/version to the one on the original Down On The Farm (featured here).

Up until now only five of the nine tracks on Time Loves A Hero were available as remasters (on Hotcakes & Outtakes), so it's great to hear this entire album as well with a complimentary up-to-date remastering.

This Euro double CD is very well put together, includes an attractive, colourful booklet, and (for UK buyers anyway) is very well priced.

Recommended.

*Both CDs are remasters of the original vinyl LPs
