Little Feat: Dixie Chicken (Warner Bros.)

Colman Andrews, Phonograph Record, April 1973

LOWELL GEORGE is probably the best ear-to-the-earth, eye-on-the-bar-line writer of folk-themed rock and roll this side of Robbie Robertson, and Dixie Chicken by Little Feat (the group he writes and sings and plays guitar with) is one of the best pieces of highly (but not slickly) professional contemporary musical Americana since The Band.

Total word count of piece: 377
