Little Feat: Dixie Chicken

Bud Scoppa, Rolling Stone, 12 April 1973

LIKE THEIR much more famous cousins, the Rolling Stones and Van Morrison, Little Feat are eclectic in a vertical rather than a horizontal way. They are past the point of wanting to make stylistic distinctions in their music. And if they had come along two or three years earlier, when radio programmers and record buyers alike were still willing to take chances, I'm sure they would have gotten plenty of recognition by now.
