2 Feet in the Gutter is the final album led by jazz drummer Dave Bailey which was originally released on the Epic label in 1961. The album is notable for featuring the first recording of "Comin' Home Baby" which became a top 40 hit for Mel Torme.



AllMusic gave the album a 4–star rating, stating, "While this record is just a notch beneath Dave Bailey's earlier dates for Epic -- One Foot in the Gutter and Gettin' Into Somethin' -- it is definitely worth picking up".
