  • First of all let me say that I love this band, I have for over thirty years and still do, including its new lineup. They are, without doubt, the best good time rock and roll band ever assembled. However, I will not swoon and give five stars to everything/anything they (the Peverett estate) puts out. Mind you, there is some incredible material here – Honey Hush, It Hurts Me, Too, Louisiana Blues, Eight Days on the Road, I Ain’t Got You, and Nothin’ But Trouble to name a few. But others, like Chateau Lafitte 59 Boogie, Drivin’ Wheel, Fool for the City and I Just Want to Make Love to You are not particularly well done – Dave’s vocals are sometimes flat and Rod Price’s slide work seems out of sync. A one disc compilation of the nine or ten best songs – the best performances – would have been a better choice. Or, eliminating some of the poorer performances and replacing them with some of the incredible stuff from the new lineup would have made for a better two disc set. I get the feeling that there’s some friction between the Peverett family and the new lineup which continues to churn out the best blues boogie, both live and in the studio, on this planet.Any Foghat fan needs to have this disc, if only for the fact that there are versions of songs never released live before. But, overall, this compilation is NOT that great.
