  • Foghat broke up as a recording unit after the “Zig Zag Walk” album in the early 80’s. As a touring act various versions of Foghat continued to perform live throughout the next decade. At one point there were two touring versions of the band competing against each other each with just one original member. In 1994 the dream of many Foghat fans came to a reality when the original four members, Lonesome Dave Peverett, Rod Price, Tony Stevens, and Roger Earl decided to bury their differences and get back together. The result was this, the band’s first new album of studio material in more than a decade. The album is mostly new, but does contain newly recorded acoustic versions of the Foghat staples “I Just Want To Make Love To You”, and “Take Me To The River”. Foghat has always been blues based and they really let their blues roots show on tracks like “Louisiana Blues”. Other highlights include “Jump That Train”, “Talk To Me Baby”, “Writing On The Wall”, and “Motel Shaker”. This really is a very good comeback album and I would say ranks up with their better earlier studio output. It may not be quite as good as “Fool For The City” or “Stone Blue”, but this is a solid effort finding the band in fine form. Unfortunately this would be the last studio disc from the original band. Both Dave Peverett and Rod Price have passed away. There is still a version of Foghat out there with Roger Earl, but sadly the original quartet is gone for good.
