Island Records signed Palmer to a solo deal in 1974.[2] His first solo album Sneakin’ Sally Through the Alley recorded in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1974, was heavily influenced by the music of Little Feat and the funk fusion of The Meters who acted as backing band along with producer/guitarist Lowell George of Little Feat.[5] Although unsuccessful in the UK, both the album and single reached the Top 100 in the US.[5] Notably, “Sailin’ Shoes” (the album’s first track), Palmer’s own “Hey Julia” and the Allen Toussaint–penned title track carry virtually the same rhythm, and were packaged on the album as a “trilogy” without a pause between them. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Palmer_(singer)
