I've just bought a vinyl copy of Waiting For Columbus in beautiful condition for £3 (!!) - but I've noticed that both sides 1 and 2 have got Side 1 label on it. Anyone know about this anomaly? Reply Notify me Helpful. Apparently, for very few of us, among the greatest albums ever. Please play loudly, with earphones, and put something in the air. Then try to tell me, after every third song, just what genre of songs you've been listening to. And then after three more, tell me again.

Waiting for Columbus is the first live album by the band Little Feat, recorded during seven performances in 1977. The first four shows were held at the Rainbow Theatre in London on August 1–4, 1977. The final three shows were recorded the following week at George Washington University's Lisner Auditorium in Washington, .
Certainly, the group is far more inspired on stage than they were in the studio after 1975 - just compare "All That You Dream," "Oh Atlanta," "Old Folks' Boogie," "Time Loves a Hero," and "Mercenary Territory" here to the cuts on The Last Record Album and Time Loves a Hero. The versions on Waiting are full-bodied and fully-realized, putting the studio cuts to shame.
Waiting for Columbus. If the late Lowell George's influence had diminished in the studio, his presence dominates here in rowdy, righteous vocals, the mercurial tang of his indelible slide guitar, and a set-list laced with his songs. Waiting For Columbus in its original format ranks as an all time great Live CD. With the addition of ten new tracks(seven which were never released), this CD soars into the stratosphere in its level of greatness.
Waiting for Columbus is the document of a touring band doing what they do best. The presence of the Tower of Power horn section perfectly augments the recording, especially Lenny Pickett's self-emolating tenor solo on "Day or Night" and his electric one-night-stand with Lowell George on "Mercenary Territory. Sam Clayton's conga opening to "Spanish Moon" immediately sets a drunk and steamy mood for the rest of the song as well as adding a tasty bit of percussion to "Dixie Chicken.

With the 1978 double concert album Waiting for Columbus, Little Feat added another aspect to their legacy, as one of the premier live bands of the ‘70s. Recorded over a series of 1977 dates in London and Washington, . these performances translate Feat’s distinctive command of the stage. Part stoner rock band, part soul revue, and part jam band, they were unlike any other touring act. The well-chosen setlist is bolstered by the presence of the Tower of Power horn section, which gives Spanish Moon, Rocket In My Pocket and Old Folks’ Boogie a lot of extra oomph.
