Little Feat have led a storied life ever since they originally formed in 1969. From then on, their unconventional signature of earthy, organic appeal and polished, first-rate musicianship wrapped around eclectic and memorable songs - clearly delivered as an authentic labor of love - has been a lasting fixture on the musical landscape. As American as apple pie - and rock ‘n roll itself - Little Feat's music transcends boundaries, a freewheeling fusion of California rock and Dixie-inflected funk-boogie. In the mix as well are strains of folk, blues, rockabilly, country and jazz, inventing a hybrid sound that is truly Little Feat's own.
During the band's celebrated tenure with Warner Bros. Records they recorded nine studio albums between 1971 and 1990 that included such iconic tracks as "Dixie Chicken" and "Willin'" among many others. That classic tenure is forever encapsulated here on the band's 1986 collection As Time Goes By: The Very Best Of Little Feat. The perfect introduction to Little Feat's signature blend, which is as indescribable as it is unforgettable, joining the aforementioned deep cuts is further indelible fare like "Sailin' Shoes," "Feats Don't Fail Me Now," and "20 Million Things," the latter lifted from Lowell George's solo album Thanks I'll Eat It Here.
