Those amazing folks over at Eagle Rock Entertainment have opened their vaults to release Little Feat’s Live In Holland 1976 as a CD + DVD set.  These discs are the first ever release of this concert in any format.
 
The CD+DVD set captures Little Feat’s barn-burnin’ performance at the famous Dutch festival Pinkpop on June 7 1976, and features the band’s classic line-up of Lowell George (vocals, guitar); Bill Payne (keyboards, vocals); Richie Hayward (drums); Paul Barrere (vocals, guitar); Sam Clayton (percussion) and Kenny Gradney (bass).

This legendary line-up performs fan favorites like Rock And Roll Doctor, Dixie Chicken, Feats Don’t Fail Me Now, Skin It Back, Teenage Nervous Breakdown, Fat Man In A Bathtub, and many more.
 
Little Feat is one of the most influential American bands of the seventies. Founded by Lowell George (formerly of Frank Zappa’s Mothers of Invention) and Bill Payne in L.A. in 1969, Little Feat produced a series of highly original albums over the next decade. They mastered an eclectic blend of rock ‘n’ roll, blues, country, folk, soul and jazz before the death of Lowell George in 1979 ending the first phase of the band’s existence. The band’s earthy, organic approach blended with their top-notch musicianship solidified their legacy in the musical landscape. The four surviving members of this classic line-up are still performing and recording as Little Feat today.
