Stuffed with first-rate songwriting, humorous lyrics, and laidback funk, Dixie Chicken is Little Feat's pinnacle studio album. The easygoing 1973 classic benefits from the arrival of three new musicians that fill out the band's sound and expand the stylistic palette, resulting in a more diversified rhythmic foundation and instrumental support. In addition, Little Feat thoroughly embraces New Orleans-rooted R&B that makes the record eminently soulful – and enjoyable. In every sense, this is the epitome of early 70s American rock and roll – funny, smart, relaxing, cohesive, melodic, smooth, stylish, engaging. And essential.
