  • If you want an anitidote for Britney Spears, Matchbox 20, andthe rest of the pablum that passes for popular music thesedays, buy this. I’m presuming the person that’s reading thiswasn’t a teen in the 70’s like me. Let me tell you, thisFoghat album was what passed for top 40 music in those days.Believe it or not, this was the MAINSTREAM stuff-the stuff youheard out of the car radios in the summer.I can’t think of abetter memory than hot summer nights in the 70’s with Foghat’sI JUST WANNA MAKE LOVE TO YOU, SLOW RIDE, and FOOL for the CITYblaring from car radios…ESPECIALLY slow ride. If you want just a glimmer of how it was to grow up in the 70’s,buy this CD now. And yah, all the top 40 stuff kicked in thosedays. Synyrd, Boston, Bad Company, Zep, Floyd, even ALICE COOPER, all were at our local K-Mart top 40 album bins. Theyused to display them next to the # in the top 40 they were,along with the 45’s. The albums were about 5 bucks, and the 45’swere a buck. Funny thing is, I think that worked better thanall the web stuff we have now for some reason. It was simplebut look at the great music that was available! Now we havehigh technology with no music to match. Maybe there is a connection there. Think of it. The more technology, the moreit took away from the roots and grittiness of the music.Maybe if we get rid of the web and go back to records andk-mart, ROCK as we used to know it may come back again.Until then, buy this album!
