Lowell Thomas George (April 13, 1945 – June 29, 1979) was an American songwriter, t, and record producer, who was the primary guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter for the rock band Little Feat. Lowell George was born in Hollywood, California, the son of Willard H. George, a furrier who raised chinchillas and supplied furs to the movie studios.
Little Feat regrouped to release 'Down on the Farm' in November 1979 after co-founder Lowell George's sudden death. His sudden death transformed the album into something else entirely. George had, in fact, been at odds for some time with fellow Little Feat co-founder Bill Payne over the direction of the group, which had made its name playing a musical gumbo of rock, soul, funk, boogie, gospel and R&B before turning towards more jazz-influenced styles that didn't suit George.
Little Feat is the first studio album by the rock band Little Feat. It was released in 1971 on Warner Bros. The album was recorded mostly during sessions between August and September 1970. Its sound is in a similar vein as the band's more widely known later recordings, such as 1973's Dixie Chicken and 1978's Waiting For Columbus. The record features Little Feat's Mk. 1 line-up, with Roy Estrada on bass. It was the first of eight albums by the band before its initial 1979 break-up.
Little Feat and Lowell George. Excluding Steely Dan who ceased to operate as a band after their first two albums Little Feat should be acknowledged as the most musically gifted band to come out of the seventies. Led by the incomparable Lowell George who after his time with Mothers of Invention took Frank Zappa's autocratic band leading style into Little Feat. Famed for his unique slide playing style he created a musical catalogue steeped in funk, blues, jazz and down home lyricism. This mix represents his studio work including his solo album Thanks I'll Eat It Here although George readily accepted they were much better on the road than in the studio. Unfortunately his unassuagable appetite for drugs, fast food & alcohol rendered him a rock 'n' roll casualty in 1979 at the age of 34.
This album is fondly dedicated to Lowell, and his family, friends, fans, collaborators, fellow musicians, and producers, engineers and arrangers, who made this dream a reality".

Starting here, leader Lowell George fades into the woodwork, and while the remainder of the group tries valiantly to keep the band afloat, the timing and the tension were too great. Musically, the group attempts to make Feats Don't Fail Me Now, Pt. 2, but the production from George is curiously flat, and, truth be told, the group just isn't inspired enough to make a satisfying album. For a very short album - only eight songs - too many of the cuts fall flat.
