Skin It Back

The appearance of Little Feat at the Grugahalle in Essen, Germany, in July of 1977 was unusual in more ways than one:

First there was Peter Ruechel, creator of the Rockpalast (Rock Palace), who was a long time fan of the band. A year earlier he had gone to a Rolling Stones concert in Stuttgart just to see Little Feat, who were the opening act. From then on he worked like crazy to arrange for their appearance at the Rockpalast. It was to happen during the first long RP night, and it was to be broadcast live all over Europe.

Then there were the local TV crews, who got their first experience in filming and broadcasting 3 rock concerts that went on all night long.

Little Feat's music seemed unusual to some, and they were relatively unknown in Europe, although they had reached a high point in their creativity in the USA. They were, and still are today, at their very best during live performances, and members of the Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin were often found among the concert goers.

Bootlegs, unauthorized live recordings, had flourished for years on the black market. So Little Feat decided to release an official live album, which was recorded in London and Washington, DC during the 7 shows after the historic Rockpalast appearance. The result was "Waiting for Columbus", by many fans and critics considered to be the best live rock album of all times, even though it was overdubbed in the studio later.

The Rockpalast concert is pure live Little Feat, as is breathtakingly evident on "Skin It Back".

If you are a fan of the band, this dvd is a must purchase. All things considered, its an excellent keepsake of the Feat circa 70's. This dvd was shot just before the recording of one of the greatest live albums ever, the Feat's Waitin for Columbus, so if you enjoyed (and still enjoy) that record, you'll really enjoy one of the few, if any, good quality audio/video representations of the Feat from that era. And its great to see Lowell George again - a true rock n roll giant.

This is the same concert that was released a few years back, this time with a little more video clarity, better sound and outtakes from the rehearsals before the show. For diehard Feat fans, it's definitely worth having.

I thought I would be able to ditch my 2000 Rockpalast DVD edition once I bought this new and improved one. But, I think I'm gonna have to keep both.

First, the bonus song "Cold, Cold, Cold" on the 2000 DVD is not included on this new version.

Second, the band comments option on the 2000 DVD is not included on this new version.

On the other hand, the bonus rehearsal tracks only available on this new version make it a keeper for hardcore fans.

Improvements in picture and sound quality in this new version are very minimal in my opinion.

Every song here is great and a classic; live, no overdubs, no bs, no glitz, just kickass musicianship, (with pretty good sound quality and camera work throughout).

This concert is of Little Feat at their peak (on their Summer '77 European tour a few weeks before they returned to the States and recorded the classic Waiting for Columbus (Bonus CD) (Dlx). So, you get the same great songs, (although not as much music as on the 2 CD version, nor with the killer Tower of Power horn section that played with them in DC), but even better is the chance to see the core band play, and get a glimpse of the 70's rock 'n roll scene (unpretentious yet passionate performances accompanied by dancing cactus stage props....)

Lowell George reminds me a bit of Jack Black (appearance only), looking young and unassuming, yet with a commanding stage presence. Reputed to have had perfect pitch it is great to watch him play the stratospheric crap out of his slide (while doing stuff like adjusting his tuning in mid solo). I know he was the one to die of an overdose, but here he's clearly the leader, and the most level headed looking one in the bunch.

Bill Payne brings that perfect combination of sophisticated jazz and honky-tonk blues to his wide array of keyboards.

Paul Barrere is especially impressive fronting the band, and plays great lead (sometimes also using slide), doing stuff that I used to think was Georges'. It is great to watch them jamming together with dueling leads.

Kenny Gradney is wonderfully animated (like a 70's dancing fool as he bobs and weaves to the beat) yet serenely focused as he lays down the thick yet nimble bass grooves.

I love this band and hoped to get a great concert DVD. It's a nice intimate concert reproduction but doesn't even remotely compare to the newer concert DVDs. Neither the sound or picture quality are good. Considering when this was recorded, maybe my expectations were unrealistic.
