Custom Artwork Included

Here are a couple classic performances by the legendary Little Feat, one of the greatest (and perhaps most underappreciated) Rock n' Roll Bands of all time.Their unique blend of driving Rock 'n Roll with Folk, Blues, New Orleans Funk, and Jazz-Rock Fusion elements, with Lowell George's inimitable songs, vocals, and slide guitar work, Bill Payne's driving keyboard funk, and one of the best rhythym sections ever (Paul Barrere-guitar, Kenny Gradney-bass, Richie Hayward-drums, and Sam Clayton-percussion), remains unsurpassed. This is my own compilation of the Ultrasonic Radio Sessions. These are tracks from two separate performances at the Ultrasonic (WLIR) Studios in Hempstead, NY combined into one CD-length show. I have taken the superb Pre-FM Master recordings from The 1974-09-19 Session, added the additional 3 songs from the FM rebroadcast that were played that day but not included on the original radio broadcast, and then added just the tracks from the 1973-04-10 Ultrasonic show that were different from those played at the 1974 show (taken from an FM broadcast). Thus, this compilation includes (for the first time) the best available version of all of the songs played over the course of the two sessions, arranged into a seamless concert program. There are few high quality recordings from these early days of this great band (and these are probably the best). So, enjoy this great compilation of Amazing Feats, which I have dubbed 'Ultrasonic Ultra'. -- BBKRON

BTW, there are numerous (over 200, including many SBD and FM) Little Feat shows available in both lossless and mp3 at the Internet Archives - Live Music archives (, which is where I got these shows. Check 'em out.
