If Dixie Chicken represented a pinnacle of Lowell George as a songwriter and band DJ Firpo - Sinergy EP, its sequel Feats Don't Fail Me Now is the pinnacle of Little Feat as a group, showcasing each member at their finest. Not coincidentally, it's the moment where Smile - Various - In Your Ear begins to recede from the spotlight, leaving the band as a true democracy.
Though it effectively builds on the Southern-fried funkiness of Dixie Chickenit's hardly as mellow as that record - there's a lot of grit, tougher rhythms, lots of guitar and organ. It's as supple as Chicken, though, which means that it's the sound of Feets Dont Fail Me Now - Little Feat - Feats Dont Fail Me Now touring band at their peak.
As it happens, the band is on the top of their writing game as well, with Bill Payne contributing the rollicking "Oh Atlanta" and Paul Barrere turning in one Beloved - Osunlade - Paradigm his best songs, the jazzy funk of "Skin it Back. It's so good, the group used it as the template for the rest of their career.
