Smash hits include "Slow Ride" "Fool For the City," "My Babe," "Drive Me Home" &
Foghat are truly a worldwide gift to rock music and boogie band enthusiasts
everywhere. The nucleus of the band (Dave Peverett, Roger Earl, Tone Stevens)
were originally from the British blues powerhouse Savoy Brown, and left to form
their own trail blazing band in 1972, and rock music and their millions of fans
have never been the same since.
By 1975, Foghat were now enjoying the benefits of super stardom after years on
the road and having consistent successful radio and chart success. "Fool For The
City" was monumental hit for the band, thanks to the title track and the much
loved rock and roll outlaw anthem "Slow Ride."
Kicking things off with the bona fide smash title track "Fool For The City",
this rock champion truly takes the listener into a classic rock journey complete
with all the exciting elements you would expect from this superstar outfit. A
major hit at both rock and pop radio, the song to this day is still played on
radio stations all over the world.
Joined by new bassist and producer Nick Jameson for this album, Foghat truly
delivered a classic LP that continues to sound as exciting as it did several
decades ago. Check out the stunning blues interpretation of Robert Johnson’s
classic "Terraplane Blues", the power balladry of "Take Or Leave It" and of
course the Foghat smash cover version of "My Babe".
Lonesome Dave Peverett continues his winning streak with a handful of great
compositions including the chart topping "Slow Ride" which features an all out
boogie assault that revels in the hard rocking drum beat supplied by Roger Earl.
Augmented with stunning slide guitar from Rod Price, power guitar and lead
vocals from Dave Peverette, and a pounding bass riff from Nick Jameson, this
tune forever stands out as one of the most memorable rock songs of all time.
These pioneers of the British blues/rock scene carry on with more masterful
workouts on hit album tracks like "Save Your Loving (For Me)" and "Drive Me
Home", making "Fool For The City" the revered masterpiece that it still is
