Dixie Chicken

Listening to all the Dr. John songs after his passing reminded my of this song by Little Feat. And I was shocked to see I haven’t featured a Little Feat song in a very long time. (Not since I switched from Blogger to WordPress.)

This is “Dixie Chicken” by Little Feat, from the live album Waiting for Columbus. It was recorded in 1977 and released the following year. Backed by The Tower of Power horn section, it is a great album. The piano and, to a lesser extent, the singing remind me of Dr. John’s performance of “Such a Night.” Not sure that makes sense really.

YouTube doesn’t handle it very well, but this song flows right into “Triple Face Boogie,” which is also good.
