(Flac) LITTLE FEAT - Electrif Lycanthrope - Ultrasonic Studios [WLIR], Hempstead, NY. 1974

Little Feat Live
Ultrasonic Studios [WLIR], Hempstead, NY
September 19, 1974

In the previous post, the guest writer mentioned this classic bootleg which has long been available on vinyl. Still unreleased and one of the best ever radio live performances. Clicking on the link will take you to the archive.org website where there are two versions available, one with the bonus tracks and one without. If you are wondering about the original bootleg title, my assumption is it means electric werewolf or shapeshifter hence the unusual artwork.

  1. Never heard of them before. Should be interesting! Thanks for the share!

  2. Hope you get into the groove. For those unsure try the Fan and Willin' first

  3. I always wondered: why does it say "Be-Bop Deluxe" under the title? They didn't play with LF, did they?

  4. I don't know if that reference be bop deluxe was a description of the type of music that the band played. Unlikely to be the British band but you never know.

  5. Thank you - long time LF fan, of the Lowell George era, and been loking for this for ages.

  6. LOL - nice to see this again. I still have my original LP - the band were selling them around the back of the Hammersmith gig in London. It is, in my opinion, simply the best live performance of any band.

  7. The first time I heard it I didn't get what all the fuss was about. Yes, great performance but the sound quality left a lot to be desired. It was only later when I downloaded it again I realised that I had download an inferior source with poor quality.
    So hearing this one was like night and day, brilliant sound with a cooking performance.

  8. Had this great, great album in the '70s, and left it on a no.32 bus in Kilburn when drunk.
    Has anybody found it?

  9. Fantastic share - thanks so much, basement67!

  10. Best to ever exist!
