Lowell George was the guitar virtuoso, vocalist, and songwriter for Little Feat. In this collection of 25 songs, artists such as Elvis Costello, Ben Harper, and Dave Alvin interpret and perform his diverse catalog. George, born in Hollywood, California, was a member of Frank Zappa’s Mothers of Inventions before leaving that band and forming Little Feat with Bill Payne. Lowell’s tenure in the band was for 7 years until his death, and in that time, they released eight albums. While George died in 1979, his legacy lives on through this album. In this new double LP, Sweet Relief, the organization that provides financial assistance to all types of career musicians and music industry workers who are struggling to make ends meet, has come up with a gem.
