Little Feat

Skin It Back DVD

Review by Gary Hill

This concert was just a matter of days before the band recorded their Waiting For Columbus album. So, we catch the band live in the peak of their vitality and musical prowess. This was also sadly to be Lowell George’s last tour with the band. For both of these reason this is a must have for both the hard core and casual fan of the group, but it’s also a great introduction to this classic and essential outfit. Since this was filmed in the 1970’s there’s something to be desired in terms of the video and sound, but it’s not any where near so weak as to make the video lacking. It’s just that in comparison to more modern videos you can tell the difference. This is an incredible live performance from a band that really shone the brightest in the live venue. It would be a great DVD if the main concert were the only thing here, but alas we also get a great bonus. That bonus is a sound-check performance of the group. It’s less formal and more intimate. It shows a different side of the band and is therefore an excellent choice for inclusion here. All in all this is a killer set that just plain rocks. It’s highly recommended to all fans of 1970’s rock.
