The 1972 classic from Little Feat that feature more hooks but still maintains the unique rock, blues and country blend that defined the band's sound. Although considered a classic today, Little Feat's 1971 debut had failed to sell up to expectations and, for that, the band found themselves on thin ice at Warner Brothers. Turning to another red-hot WB staff producer in Ted Templeman (The Doobie Brothers, Van Halen, Van Morrison), they were able to further hone Lowell George's bent and surreal writing and elevate Bill Payne and Richie Hayward's contributions into more hook-laden tunes. Showing authority, confidence and, indeed, major cojones (including a rearranged "Willin'," a song from their first album, on their follow-up!), 1972's Sailin' Shoes firmly established Feat as a major force in pop music.

This is a great record, and one of my all-time favorites, period. This record was quite a bit stronger than the band's first effort. The MoFi pressing does a good job with the recording and it's quite enjoyable. The record is superbly produced. It features some great slide guitar work on Lowell George's part and chronicles the emergence of Little Feat's unique musical ethos. The music still sounds fresh today and this is a record I can listen to over and over again.

I am surprised that no one has reviewed this record yet. I am sure many share my love for this record. Little Feat titles are very frustrating for me. I have every original, re-mastered version of all their major titles. None of them sound good to my ears (except Waiting for Columbus); however, this one is the best of the bunch. I so wish there was a way to make this record sound good. Back in the day when I fell in love with Little Feat, I did not suffer from the audiophile disease: I just loved this record for what it is. Now, I crave the quality. Guess I will never get what I want from this record. This one will have to do. Based upon my experience with this record, I will buy Dixie Chicken when it comes out but.....
