How to get a Music Friday that connects Thanksgiving, eating and music?
Lowell George and his only solo album, "Thanks, I'll Eat it Here," that's how. For the uninitiated, Lowell was a mainstay in Little Feat before his untimely death on the 4th of July, 1979 (memorialized by Jackson Browne). But, as the Feat sound began to drift into a jazz-rock direction, Lowell wanted to do his own album.
But, he certainly didn't do it alone. Bonnie Raitt, Nicky Hopkins, David Foster, Jeff Porcaro, Floyd Sneed and J.D. Souther were among the over 40 friends that ended their talents to a sadly overlooked album.
Here's my favorite track: Twenty Million Things to Do.
And, thanks for the music and the memories, Lowell. You are missed.
