More rock progeny


This is thebirdandthebee. It's a terrific single from a very good album. She's Inara George, the daughter of Lowell George from Little Feat. One of the most extraordinary shows I ever witnessed was at the Rainbow Theatre on January 19th 1975. It was, bizarrely, a Sunday afternoon and somebody had made the mistake of putting Little Feat on as support for the Doobie Brothers. They did three encores and would have done more if the schedule had allowed. I remember Lowell George looking out at the throng, his hand shading his eyes and saying "You people are crazy." A couple of days earlier I shook his hand at a reception which took place at the American Embassy in Grosvenor Square. He looked like a person who had checked out already. If anybody knows how I can get hold of a recording of that show I'd be grateful.
