About the Show
In August 1977, the band captured sonic gold when they brought along a recording team to shows in London and Washington, D.C. Backed by the Tower of Power horn section, with whom they’d recorded Feats Don’t Fail Me Now, they romped through extended versions of a stellar song selection that included “Fat Man in the Bathtub,” “Spanish Moon,” “Dixie Chicken,” “Sailin’ Shoes,” “Feats Don’t Fail Me Now,” the iconic truck driver’s lament, “Willin’” and many more. Hearing it again is something every Feat Fan looks forward to. It’s time to lace up your dancing shoes.
