Footwear: Sailin' Shoes



Little Feat: Sailin' Shoes

[purchase]


Little Feat got their name from drummer Jimmy Carl Black's comment on guitarist Lowell George's small fat feet. George was an amazing singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist - here's a worthwhile interview to learn up on him.


Lowell George backed Robert Palmer in this nifty cover.

Goddam it, I was halfway through uploading this one. And where is the Robert Palmer cover?

Wow, sorry about that. It's time we assign these in advance.

No way, man -- that would take the fun out of it altogether. Had I started drafting the piece first, then you surely would have seen it blogger, and we could have negotiated; I just need to adjust my sequencing to match the "normal" way of doing things, and all will be fine.

Glad to see you've got the Palmer, too; I've always loved his "white man's funk" version of this one. I might humbly suggest you bump it up to the main entry if you want people to see it, though -- so few of us read the comments. :-)
