It's funny, but I never felt Little Feat wasn't making music and had to check out the first two post-Lowell CD's I bought, "Let It Roll" (1988) and "Representing The Mambo" (1990) to verify your time line. And it was Craig Fuller sharing the singing with Billy, Paul and Richie on both albums which contain a number of terrific tracks.
I was acquainted with Richie because I had gone to high school with his first wife, Pam, and remember seeing the original four at a club on Sunset near downtown LA in 1970. I have all the first era albums, plus "HoyHoy" and the two above....I never tire of listening to and watching the band on You Tube when Lowell George was leading it, because Lowell was truly a once in a lifetime talent. And while I understand it's been 41 years since I first heard :"Hamburger Midnight".........it just seems like it happened last week, perhaps illustrating how timeless Little Feat's music remains. In the now, right now, if you can just "put on your sailin' shoes" and listen.
