Little Feat 8/7/09 Billings MT
TENNESSEE JED

The new CD by Little Feat, Rooster Rag, includes four songs (including the title track) written by Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter and Little Feat’s keyboardist, Bill Payne. I’ve been a fan of the band since the very early ’70s, and I was delighted to hear their cover of “Tennessee Jed” at a Rex Foundation benefit a few years back. (The Dead’s 1978 album Shakedown Street was produced by the late Little Feat founder and slide guitar wizard Lowell George, by the way.)
