Album Review of "Sam's Place" By Little Feat (8/10)

Hot Tomato Productions/MRI

Producer: Little Feat and Charles A. Martinez

For their first studio recording in a dozen years, renowned swamp rockers Little Feat decided to focus exclusively on the blues. Covers of Willie Dixon and Muddy Waters tunes account for a good portion of the album.

Originals include “Last Night,” a tribute to Ed Bradley of 60 Minutes, who was a friend of conga player Sam Clayton. Clayton sings lead on every track, and his voice perfectly fits the genre. It’s unfortunate this sameness dulls the excitement.
