* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first record lacked the syncronated funk rhythms and tight grooves of later records, instead being largely a roots-based affair in the vain of Leon Russell, Music/TheBand, and ''[[Music/ExileOnMainSt Exile]]''-era [[Music/TheRollingStones Rolling Stones]].

Added DiffLines:

* SoloSideProject: Lowell George's ''Thanks I'll Eat It Here'' (1977), which features more of the "classic" Feat sound in contrast to the jazz-based material the band was by then exploring.


* BoxedSet: ''Hotcakes & Outtakes: 30 Years of Little Feat'' (2000), a 4-CD set containing highlights from the band's entire history up to that time as well as early and solo material from George and Estrada.
