2013 Stereophile Magazine Record to Die For!

When you think about great live albums, several immediately come to mind. The Who’s Live at Leeds. James Brown’s Live at the Apollo. The Allman Brothers Band’s Live at Fillmore East. Kiss’ Alive! Nirvana’s Unplugged. And, while it is sometimes unjustifiably forgotten, Little Feat’s Waiting for Columbus. The last essential album the rootsy California band made stands as the group’s peak accomplishment - a staggering confluence of energetic performances, skilled improvisations, and thematic expansion.

Joined onstage by the Tower of Power horn section, Little Feat accentuates and remakes familiar arrangements, using the stage as a laboratory for unbridled creativity, New Orleans-spiced fun, and spontaneous interaction. Bursting with enthusiasm and excitement, Waiting for Columbus is truly a live album for the ages—and one of a certain distinctive era.

Amazingly, the set came together under less-than-ideal conditions. In the months leading up to the seven 1977 Washington D.C. and London concerts that were taped for the record, leader Lowell George had removed himself from the band’s affairs. The chemistry was fractured, but the shows functioned as a molding agent. And did Little Feat ever respond. With every member of the sextet playing like their life depended on it, and a guest appearance by ex-Rolling Stone Mick Taylor, this is a must-have set.

Mobile Fidelity is proud to present Waiting for Columbus in the finest possible sound so that you can get a clear sense of the virtuosic musical interplay. And yes, it beats the first MoFi version released decades ago. Strictly limited, this numbered edition will, like all good things, not last forever. Here’s your chance to own all four essential Little Feat titles—1971’s Little Feat (MOBGCD770), 1972's organic rock jamabalaya Sailin' Shoes (MOBGCD778), and 1973's funky Dixie Chicken (MOBGCD784)—as well as this seminal live set in the very best fidelity possible. Talk about a collection builder.

Also available as Mobile Fidelity Limited Edition 180g 2LP (MFSL 2-322).

"The abundance of great music, the culture of drugs, and the politics of Richard Nixon, which had everyone polarized and created more of a sense of community, all contributed to this incredible feeling that somehow we were on a collective journey. Waiting for Columbus is one of the last parts of that journey, and among the last vestiges of that scene." –Little Feat keyboardist Bill Payne, as told to Bud Scoppa

"In the 1970s, Little Feat was the band to beat. Leader Lowell George's masterful lyrics and wry wit, coupled with his searing slide-guitar work and the whole band's assimilation of the New Orleans sound, made this group one of the greatest of the era... Rarely does a live album stand up to the experience of being there, but Waiting for Columbus smokes the competition. Not only is it practically a Little Feat greatest-hits package, but every track feautres fiercely funky solos, especially the soaring sax and synth work in 'Mercenary Territory' and the struttin' jive and gleaming slide of 'Fat Man in the Bathtub.'" - Daniel Buckley, Stereophile Magazine, February 2013, p. 63
