Little Feat: Hammersmith Odeon, London

Adam Sweeting, The Guardian, 2 July 1990

THERE'S A song on Little Feat's 1988 album, Let It Roll, called 'Hangin' On To The Good Times'. It's a syrupy, self-romanticising look back at the band's heyday under its original leader Lowell George, expressed in the kind of maudlin doggerel George could never have brought himself to write. Hangin' on to the good times is exactly what the resuscitated Feat is trying to do, and listening to it puts years on you.
