    I'm excited for the 2 LP Deluxe Edition coming for rsd24. We’ll finally get to hear alternate tracks and outtakes from these sessions- along with extra liner notes!

      Is this record extra thick in quality or is it just me?

        Does this count as yacht rock? I listening to it again after a number of years, I think it might be.

          With Lowell having become so disillusioned with the band Little Feat, his only recourse was to set out on his own and attempt to shuffle on back to his roots.

          Delivered shortly before his death, Thanks, I’ll Eat It Here, a sideswipe joke at himself, as he was know to order a large pizza with all the extras and eat it right there at the parlor, or on the way home. The record was relentlessly short, clocking in at around thirty minutes, with but a single track credited directly to him, along with three others where he gets co-writing credits. This aspect was a complete surprise to me, as I thought he’d been spiriting away his best material for a couple of years now. Regardless, Lowell’s voice is crisp and pleasant, the music is bright and accessible, though of course, that early Little Feat lineup is missed. That being said, there were an amazing number of artists who wished to be part of this project, including Jim Gordon, Bonnie Raitt, Chilli Charles, Jeff Porcaro and of course Nicky Hopkins.

          Lowell doesn’t stray far from the original scores laid down by the artists he covers, including Allen Toussaint, Ann Pebles, Jimmy Webb and the like … though he does create marvelous images within those structures, delivering a grouping of songs that are ripe with southern rock, sleazy blues, compelling ballads, along with some lofty country-folk sort of songs that are nearly impossible to define.

          It all goes down easy, yet perhaps not as memorable as any of those early productions by the Feat, but a fine first step in the solo career Lowell George, too bad this is all we’ll get.

          *** The Fun Facts: It is impossible to close without mentioning the cover art by Neon Park which at first glance may just appear to be a portrait of George wearing a bathrobe in a garden. However if you look more closely you will see that the backdrop is a version of the Edouard Manet “Le Dejuener Sur L’herbe” painting, though this time out, with Bob Dylan, Fidel Castro and Marlene Dietrich as the diners … eating it here.

            I am the mastering engineer on the LP vinyl version of the record, Darrell Johnson, "DWJ" and "DWJ/2"; where you see the DWJ/2 run out inscription it signifies that the mastering was done with the JVC Cutting Center half speed audiophile mastering system.
