A Deluxe Edition of Little Feat’s ‘Feats Don’t Fail Me Now’ Album Coming Soon

Features rare and unreleased alternate versions and outtakes

Feats Don’t Fail Me Now, one of the best albums Little Feat released in their long career is getting a deluxe edition. It is going to be a feat, for sure.

The expanded title from Rhino features rare and unreleased alternate versions and outtakes from the album sessions, along with a previously unreleased 1975 concert. The set arrives June 14, 2024, to celebrate the 1974 original’s 50th anniversary. It joins the label’s growing list of Little Feat reissues, including 2023’s Deluxe Editions for Sailin’ Shoes and Dixie Chicken and 2022’s massive Waiting for Columbus box set.

The expanded Feats Don’t Fail Me Now will be available on 3-CD and 2-LP in the U.S. here and in the U.K. here. Both versions include the studio album newly remastered from the original multi-track and two-track stereo tapes. A previously unreleased alternate version of “Spanish Moon” from the forthcoming set was made available on April 8.

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 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 the album with “Skin It Back” and “Oh Atlanta,” while also weaving in earlier classics like “Willin’” and “Fat Man In the Bathtub.”
