The Faces worked the song "Big Bayou" into the setlist for their 1975 fall tour, which turned out to be the band's final tour. Faces vocalist Rod Stewart recorded his own cover of "Big Bayou" the following year for A Night on the Town. Wood remade "Breathe on Me" in 1991 for his album Slide On This.
