These Little Feat Still Don't Fail
Join The Band
4 Scoops of Bosco
By Allen Bacon

Little Feat is back with their first new album in five years, almost 29 years to the day of the death of founder Lowell George.
The band is probably not quite what George had invisioned for it back when he started it in 1969, but Craig Fuller, Billy Payne, and the rest of the guys still rock with an unrivaled Southern-fried boogie-woogie swagger.
There is no new material on Join The Band, but the album is notable because some legendary performers have, well....joined the band...and help out where needed. People like Dave Matthews, Jimmy Buffett, Bela Fleck, Vince Gill, Bob Seger, Black Crowe's Chris Robinson, Emmy Lou Harris, and Inara George (the daughter of Lowell George).
Most notable is Emmy Lou Harris on Trouble, Dave Matthews on Fat Man in the Bathtub and Chris Robinson on Oh Atlanta
Produced by Jimmy Buffett and some of his Coral Reefer Band buddies, this album is the feel good hit of the year so far.
