Little Feat Feats Don't Fail Me Now on 180g LP

Little Feat blended a wide range of musical styles to create a sound that's as indescribable as it is unforgettable. During the band's celebrated tenure with Warner Bros. Records it recorded nine studio albums between 1971 and 1990 that included such classic tracks as "Dixie Chicken," "Rocket in My Pocket," "Fat Man In the Bathtub" and "Willin'."

Singer-guitarist Lowell George and keyboardist Bill Payne formed the band in 1969 with drummer Richie Hayward and bassist Roy Estrada. The quartet recorded two acclaimed albums – its self-titled debut and Sailin' Shoes. Little Feat's sound and line-up evolved in 1972 when Kenny Gradney replaced Estrada on bass and the band added second guitarist Paul Barrere and percussionist Sam Clayton.

Over the next seven years, Little Feat recorded five studio albums and many of their greatest songs including the tight and tasteful 1974 effort Feats Don't Fail Me Now and catalog gems like "Oh Atlanta," "Skin It Back," "Rock and Roll Doctor" and "Spanish Moon." The band's fourth full-length overall is as funky as it is greasy and also features such famous guests as Bonnie Raitt and Emmylou Harris to boot.

Payne proclaimed, "I think the one for me that was the most fun to make was Feats Don't Fail Me Now. You know, it's got "Rock & Roll Doctor" on it, it's got "Oh, Atlanta," etcetera...There were just some really wonderful songs on there. It was also a really good period for us...Obviously, the record people look at – and I love it, too – is Waiting for Columbus. That's a definitive record. But those songs that were recorded for that, quite a few of ‘em – not all of ‘em – were from Feats Don't Fall Me Now."
