"Swampy rhythms? Check. Nasty, cutting slide guitar? Present. A funky combination of blues, country and rock and roll? Oh yeah." That's how American Songwriter characterizes Little Feat's 16th studio album, which takes on Mississippi John Hurt's "Candyman Blues" and Willie Dixon's "Mellow Down Easy" as well as serving up a set of originals worth crowing about (plus the cover and interior art are spectacular). Highlights include "Rag Top Down," "Church Falling Down," and "Jamaica Will Break Your Heart."
"Songs that feel fleshed out, not just amiable jams with words laid on top…. Amply illustrates all of Little Feat's enduring charms."—All Music Guide
