Bill Payne and Lowell George founded Little Feat in 1969 and had instant success with the song ‘Willin’. The band had a fervent cult-like following until the death of Lowell George in 1979.

Despite the loss of Lowell George the band continued to tour and record. Numerous changes in people has not changed the band’s basically funky and jazzy southern rock style.

Fans on Amazon.com gave the CD a 5 star rating.

The Boston Globe said ‘Rooster Rag’ was “a versatile tour de force with Feat’s four singers tackling mostly picaresque themes that would make Helm proud.”

Absolute Punk wrote “Rooster Rag is a fun and inspired effort with far too many careless throwaways. The only lasting grace is that despite mountains of adversity, the Little Feat train keeps on rolling.”

The video was filmed at the Alley in North Hollywood, California.

The song ‘Rooster Rag’ is available for free download.
