  • Call ‘em Froghat, Foghart, Hogfart, whatever twist on their odd name you want, this was the premier boogie band of the ’70s without a doubt, and before they nose-dived in the ’80s they had one last gasp of greatness with “Stone Blue.” This collection is their classic format: Superb original rock’n'roll like the title cut, “Easy Money,” and especially “Midnight Madness” (my fave but sadly underappreciated by the mass audience) paired with their inimitable versions of timeless blues tracks like Robert Johnson’s (the father of the blues) “Sweet Home Chicago,” Elmore James’s “It Hurts Me Too,” and Earl McDaniel’s “Chevrolet.”The other two cuts are throwaways, but the six listed above are so solid and so well worth repeated plays that I can’t rate this less than five stars. It ranks with “Fool For the City” and “Energized” as their best ever.
