Little Feat truly returns nearly to the form of the Lowell George era with this fine collection. The band returns to its blues roots with many fine tunes such as Romance Without Finance, Caddilac Hotel, and Rock N Roll Everynight. New Vocalist, Shawn Murphy definitely makes her presence felt on the above mentioned tunes and many other songs. Its just a total injustice that a great band like this can not get enough due recognition while many talentless rappers and grungers put out incomplete limited interpretations of music and that sells.

Little Feat ain't failed us yet as the revived institution returns ever closer to its Dixie-fried roots. The musicianship is predictably superb and Paul Barrere again keeps the spirit of Lowell George alive with his singing and slide guitar (namely, "Blue Jean Blues" and "Cajun Rage"). Yet it's newcomer Shaun Murphy who could put the band's 13th album on the map. Her superb, Bonnie Raitt-like vocals make "Big Bang Theory" and the swamp gumbo "Romance Without Finance" gritty winners.--Jeff Bateman
