Little Feat's lone official live album was chopped up for its initial CD release, with two tracks lopped off so it could fit on a single disc they showed up, inexplicably, as bonus tracks on the CD issue of The Last Record Album. After years of neglect, the album was finally restored in 2002, except "restored" might not be the right word for it. It was re-thought and expanded, with the original album now spilling over onto a second disc which is where the encore is, which is fleshed out with seven previously unissued outtakes, plus three songs initially released on Hoy-Hoy.

It's a lovely package, with copious notes from Bud Scoppa and lots of photos, great remastered sound, and generous bonus tracks. It's as well done as could be expected, but be forewarned -- none of the unreleased material is as good as what made the record, tending to be a little slack and emphasizing their encroaching fascination with fusion. That's really not that big of a deal, of course, since collectors will buy this no matter what, and they'll be happy with this lavish, loving package.

    A Great Jam Band Who Had Some Limitations

    Little Feat were one of the best of the original jamming outfits, tighter than the Dead and almost as powerful and bluesy as the Allmans.They really cooked on the fast songs and integrated the Tower of Power horns so well you would think they had played together for years. Songwriting was their Achilles heel. They never wrote a number as transcendent as Whipping Post or Elizabeth Reed and the story songs were nowhere near the level of The Band's, another group they were somewhat similar to. Lowell George seemed to go for clever instead of heartfelt and, frankly, considering his sad demise, his drug references are unsettling.This two CD set might be all the Feat you need. It is for me.

    A live great...

    I couldn't disagree more with the reviewer's assertion that the added tracks seem slack... They are as tight as you might expect with Little Feat. I suggest that even if you already have the old version the great sound and some really fine ''outtakes'' are worth the price. And I don't know what the reviewer was talking about in the outtakes... as only one of these cuts, Day at the Dog Races'' really represents their ''dabbling in fusion.'' He shouldn't substiutute glibness for intelligence, I think. It's all a matter of taste, and no one person's opinion should be the last word. But I think that even if you aren't a fan of Feat yet, you will be one for certain after picking up this CD. Check it out!

    ONE OF THE LAST GREAT LIVE ALBUMS OF THE 70S

    waiting for Columbus was already a great live album but now with digital remastering & the inclusion of previously ureleased tracks it gives a more complete picture of what the band was capable of live. Also long time fans will notice how the recorded versions pale by comparison to these live renderings. Also included are live tracks from the Hoy Hoy album recored at the same concert.
