Not to take anything away from the output of Little Feat over the past few decades but the band's seminal work was done in the '70s prior to the death of singer/guitarist Lowell George. And for fans of that era, here's a real treat as Live in Holland presents a hot set list drawn primarily from the Sailin' Shoes, Dixie Chicken and Feats Don't Fail Me Now albums.
The show opens with the funky "Skin it Back" featuring Paul Barrere on vocals and George on slide guitar; the song segues into a take on "Fat Man in a Bathtub" where the pair reverse roles as George takes the microphone while Barrere reels off the slide licks.
"Cold, Cold, Cold," "Dixie Chicken" and "Tripe Face Boogie" turn into one long jam that includes a keyboards solo from Billy Payne and George changing the lyrics to "Dixie Chicken" slightly to reflect the fact that the show is happening in Amsterdam.
"Rock and Roll Doctor," "Feats Don't Fail Me Now," "Teenage Nervous Breakdown" and The Last Record Album's "All That You Dream" are also performed.
Considering the era, the videography here is not bad; nothing fancy but nothing to complain about either. Fans should really enjoy this time capsule; it captures the funky L.A. cosmic cowboys at their zenith.
This is a DVD + CD package and the CD includes two songs not found in the film: "Oh Atlanta" and "One Love Stand."
