Little Feat is the eponymous debut by the American rock band Little Feat, released in January 1971. Cobbled together from a variety of recording sessions mostly between August and September 1970, its sound can be described as the antecedent to the group's more widely known recordings (such as 1973's Dixie Chicken and 1978's Waiting For Columbus). Featuring the Mk. 1 line-up of the group, with Roy Estrada on bass, it was the first of eight albums by the group before their initial 1979 break-up.

The cover shows a mural in Venice, California, painted by the L. A. Fine Arts Squad in 1970 - "Venice in the Snow".

In 2007 the album was released as Gold CD (Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab).
