Fool For The City and Slow Ride (which Lonesome Dave has described as a ’sleazy’ song) were the tunes that launched Foghat and popped them forever into the rock and roll hall of fame!
Plus there are a couple added benefits – Terraplane Blues, Drive Me Home, and Take It Or Leave It. The original Foghat lineup of Lonesome Dave Peverett, Rod ‘The Bottle’ Price, Tone Stevens, and Roger Earl.
If you’re unfamiliar with Foghat, this is probably the album to best introduce you to them. It’s got arguably the two biggest hits they’ve had to date.
I was fortunate to see Foghat live in ‘98 or ‘99. They opened for the Doobie Brothers.
The DOOBIE Brothers?!?!? Sheesh.
They did their hits from this release and everything still sounded great. They sounded so good, in fact, that I didn’t make it through three songs by the Doobie Brothers. When Foghat left the stage, my interest left the concert hall. The Doobies were doomed by having to follow such an act!
Foghat fans, it doesn’t get any better than this!
