When musician Lowell George died in 1979, he left behind a small but impressive discography, most of it recorded with the band Little Feat. George had formed the group at the insistence of Frank Zappa and quickly released a series of records that remain highly influential to this day. His songs are the subject of a new tribute from the Sweet Relief organization titled Long Distance Love. The collection features contributions from Ben Harper, Larry Goldings, Dave Alvin and from George’s daughter, Inara. We’ll hear music from that release as well as selections from Split Lip Rayfield’s On My Way.
