Little Feat, Electrif Lycanthrope (Be-Bop Deluxe) (1974)
Bootlegs are something I’m forever dubious about – I’ve been given a few bootleg CDs and Mp3s and they can be interesting if you really love the band – but soon enough you return to decent quality, to the official releases. That changed a bit with downloading/iPods/Mp3s I guess. But again, for me, it’s mostly been underwhelming finding bootlegs – but I am a bit of a sucker for the odd thing on vinyl. If/when I find it. And I picked this up last year after becoming obsessed with Little Feat a couple of years ago – and wanting to get my hands on any and all things. That said, I worked through half a dozen Little Feat bootleg LPs (some collector must have recently traded them all in) and this was the one that sounded the best. Good enough to play – regularly. And that’s what I do with it. Naturally.
