Seminal 70s genre-blending band Little Feat is on the road this summer celebrating the upcoming 45th anniversary of Waiting For Columbus, one of the most celebrated live albums ever made. Released in 1978, the live double album featured memorable performances of songs (“Dixie Chicken,” “Willin’” and “Time Loves A Hero”) that spanned the group’s career. The first song from the new edition, “Fat Man In The Bathtub,” recorded at The Rainbow in London, is available now.

To make the album originally, Little Feat (backed by the Tower of Power horn section) recorded several shows in the U.K. and U.S. during the band’s 1977 summer tour. Rhino will include three of those performances, which have never been released, in a new boxed set for the album’s 45th anniversary. The unreleased concerts were recorded in Manchester at Manchester City Hall (7/29/77), London at The Rainbow (8/2/77), and Washington D.C. at Lisner Auditorium (8/10/77).

Waiting For Columbus: Super Deluxe Edition is an 8-CD boxed set that will be released on July 29, 2022 for $99.98. It includes a newly remastered version of the original double album on CD and three unreleased concerts. In addition, all the music will be available on the same day from digital and streaming services and is available for pre-order now. Rhino.com is also offering multiple bundles of the new collection that will be released the same day.

Waiting For Columbus touches on songs from all six of the studio albums Little Feat released between 1971 and 1977. The dynamic performances showcase the sextet’s fusion of Blues, Country, Jazz, and New Orleans R&B on signature tracks.
