Album of the Day
Feats Don't Fail Me Now
Arriving on the heels of Little Feat's most famous album, FEATS DON'T FAIL ME NOW may not be recognized as the roots-rock gem it is. The 1974 Warner Bros. collection is the work of a band whose years on the road have paid off in both instrumental mastery (check out the guitar and keyboard solos on “The Fan”) and chemistry. Highlighted by such irresistible tracks as “Rock & Roll Doctor,” “Oh Atlanta” and “Skin it Back,” the sextet's savory mix of Southern rock, funk and New Orleans jazz is sweetened by guest appearances from Emmylou Harris, Bonnie Raitt and the Tower of Power horn section. Little Feat's founding father, singer-songwriter-guitarist Lowell George, was born on this day in 1945, and in his honor we'll cue up FEATS DON'T FAIL ME NOW.
