LITTLE FEAT – ” Warner Theatre Washington, D.C. 10th May 1976

Posted: May 11, 2023 in MUSIC

The year 1976 was a golden one for the band Little Feat. The iconic classic rockers had some shakeups during their formative years, but by 1976, they had settled into a groove that toed the line between folk rock and New Orleans boogie. After releasing “Dixie Chicken” (1973) and “Feats Don’t Fail Me Now” (1974), the band was rocking and rolling in style.

While things took a turn in the later 1970s, the band was sitting at the top of the world by May 10th, 1976. On that day, the group headed to the Warner Theatre in Washington, D.C., where their performance was taped by WHFS and broadcast over the radio waves. The show features Little Feat at their finest, jamming out on classics like “Skin It Back”, “Dixie Chicken”, and a triple encore of “Sailin’ Shoes”, “Feats Don’t Fail Me Now”, and “Teenage Nervous Breakdown”.
