Little Feat will release a new Deluxe Edition of Feats Don’t Fail Me Now this summer, just in time for the 50th anniversary of the legendary group’s fourth studio album. It joins Rhino’s growing list of Little Feat reissues, including last year’s Deluxe Editions for Sailin’ Shoes and Dixie Chicken and 2022’s massive Waiting for Columbus boxed set.

FEATS DON’T FAIL ME NOW (DELUXE EDITION) will be available June 14 on 3-CD and 2-LP. Both versions include the studio album newly remastered from the original multi-track and two-track stereo tapes. They also feature rare and unreleased alternate versions and outtakes from the album sessions. In addition, the CD set comes with an exclusive unreleased recording of Little Feat performing live in Paris in 1975.

An exclusive CD featuring unreleased live performances recorded at The Rainbow in London in January 1975 is also available the same. Today, an unreleased alternate version of “Spanish Moon” from the forthcoming set is available digitally.

A wealth of unreleased music is included in the new Deluxe Edition, including alternate versions of album tracks (“Rock & Roll Doctor” and “Oh Atlanta”) and early versions of songs destined for future albums, including “Long Distance Love” (The Last Record Album) and an unfinished version of “Day At The Dog Races” (Time Loves A Hero).

The presence of any session recordings from Feats Don’t Fail Me Now is a minor miracle. The studio where the band made the album, Blue Seas Recording Studio in Baltimore, was a converted barge that sank into the harbor in 1977. Until recently, the session tapes were believed to be lost.

The CD version of Feats Don’t Fail Me Now (Deluxe Edition) includes a show recorded in Paris at L’Olympia in February 1975. The setlist leans heavily on songs from Feats Don’t Fail Me Now with “Skin It Back” and “Oh Atlanta, while also weaving in earlier classics like “Willin’” and “Fat Man In The Bathtub.”

Originally released in August 1974, Feats Don’t Fail Me Now was the band’s fourth album overall but only the second recorded by the classic lineup of singer-guitarist Lowell George, drummer Richard Hayward, keyboard player Bill Payne, singer-guitarist Paul Barrere, bassist Kenny Gradney, and percussionist Sam Clayton. The album also features the R&B funk group Tower of Power on horns.

When it came out, the album received glowing reviews for its funky grooves and standout tracks like “Rock & Roll Doctor,” “Oh Atlanta,” and the lead single, “Spanish Moon.” The album went gold and was the band’s first to reach the Billboard Top 200, peaking at #36.
