as this indian summer rolls on, i seem to find myself reaching for the lone solo album from lowell george quite a bit...the laid back, slinky grooves just go down so easy & the soulful performance lingers on well after the record has stopped spinning...it's pretty well known that the one time little feat frontman preferred the stage to the studio, & in fact it took him over two years to complete the nine songs on this album, only three of which were original compositions...but i can only imagine what it was like to see him perform, as he died of a heart attack on tour in 1979, only a few weeks after i was born...it's a damn shame, cause nobody does it like lowell george, the man was timeless.
