Little Feat Perform Waiting for Columbus, Welcome Larry Campbell
On October 31, 2010, Phish performed Little Feat’s classic Waiting for Columbus in its entirety, re-popularizing the live album for a new generation of fans. On New Year’s Eve, Little Feat took ownership of their lauded live release by performing Waiting for Columbus during their New Year’s show at Silver Spring, MD’s Fillmore. The group ran through the live album’s tracks in order, pausing between the LP’s side-four tracks “Willin‘” and “Don’t Bogart That Joint” for a New Year’s declaration at midnight. The band then completed the end of “Willin.’” After wrapping-up the album—which was recorded over a series of concerts including some in nearby Washington, DC —the group encored with “Let it Roll.” Craig Fuller & Friends also offered a set which featured appearances by several members of Little Feat and the entire band on “Falling In And Out Of Love.”
Last night, Little Feat returned to New York’s City Winery. During their performance, Larry Campbell sat in on fiddle for a stretch of songs, including “Willin’,” “Don’t Bogart That Joint,” “Long Black Veil,” “The Weight” and the new Robert Hunter/Little Feat collaboration “Rooster Rag.” The complete setlist can be found over in our Box Scores section.
Little Feat will return to New York’s City Winery this evening. Larry Campbell is in New York for a performance at New York’s World Financial Center with Mike Gordon, Tortoise’s Jeff Parker and many others as part of the Apollo Project show.
