The Little Feat Saga
Bud Scoppa, Rhino Records, February 2000
This is the story of a great American band, a band as quintessentially SoCal as the Beach Boys, as rootsy as the Band, as funky as the Meters, as cerebral as Steely Dan. Its also the story of a guy who breathed life into that band, but whose own life was extinguished way too early. Oops – there must be some cosmic mistake. This wasnt the way the story line was supposed to turn out. Like Warren Beattys careless quarterback in Heaven Can Wait, he really didnt mean to do it. Can we try that one more time, please, Mr. Jordan?
