Rooster Rag by Little Feat
Released: Jun 2012
Label: New Rounder
With Robert Hunter providing lyrics (as he did for The Grateful Dead back in the day), a fantastic Mississippi John Hurt cover to open things up, and Little Feat's characteristically high-quality jammy blues rock, this 16th record marks the band's return to chicken-related album titles (Dixie Chicken, released in 1973, is considered one of their best). The playing is always impeccable, as is the recording, but it's the Dead-worthy bump of the title cut that folks who may have dismissed this modern configuration of Little Feat need to hear.
