Biography

In the late 60's Roger Earl & Lonesome Dave Peverett toured America as members of the seminal British band Savoy Brown who were on the cutting edge of the emerging British blues-rock scene. Foghat was formed in 1971 when Roger and Dave left Savoy, wanting to give a more rock 'n roll flavor to the blues-boogie music they had been playing. They took America by storm during the ...

Almost 30 years later, it is still a great album.
TJD3
Recorded as the band was becoming enormous in the states due to "Slow Ride" and the "Fool For The City" album, the band comes across like conquering heroes here.

If you are a Foghat fan or a fan of 70's rock, this is a must for your collection.

After Peter Frampton and Kiss proved in the late 70's that you could throw a live album onto the market and not only sell it in tonnage, but establish your career with it, the floodgates were open. Not everyone fared as well as those two first waves, but one of the bands that did was Foghat. Their six song volume-splintering "Foghat Live" was what every good live album should be, energetic, powerful and adrenaline inducing.

There was no stagy sounding patter, no virtuosity overplayed musicianship, just a full-on party band at the peak of its power. Recorded as the band was becoming enormous in the states due to "Slow Ride" and the "Fool For The City" album, the band comes across like conquering heroes here. The call and response between the late Lonesome Dave Peverett and the late Rod Price on "Honey Hush" is astonishing to behold. It underscores that fact that Foghat is possibly one of the most underrated of the 70's rock bands. They could take old classics like Willie Dixon's "I Just Want to Make Love to You" and claim it as their own (and hit the top 40 with it), and at the same time, turn out an anthem like "Slow Ride," which remains a classic rock staple. As far as 70's classic rock is concerned, "Foghat Live" is essential.

Which then begs the question. Why isn't this and other Foghat albums being given the remaster treatment? And where is the double disc anthology they so richly deserve? C'mon Rhino, don't leave us in the cold here....

Format: MP3 Music
Foghat from the outset was good for a rip-roaring brand of hard rock and blues, but there was an argument to make that the quartet---former Savoy Brown stalwarts Lonesome Dave Peverett (lead vocals, guitar) and Roger Earl (drums; a third Savoy expatriate, bassist Tony Stevens, who'd played with Peverett and Earl in the second and best Savoy Brown incarnation, left Foghat somewhere between their third and fourth albums); slide guitarist extraordinnaire Rod Price; bassist Craig McGregor---was far more effective in live performance than on their solid if sometimes inconsistent studio recordings.

Small wonder: they hit the road running, blowing the likes of Bachman-Turner Overdrive off the stage, and built a following almost more on their exuberant concerts than their crunchy recordings, even if their fifth studio album, the remarkable "Fool for the City," was their best-seller to date and yielded their first taste of something resembling a hit single. ("Slow Ride.") If timing is everything, Foghat couldn't have timed their first live album better: they decided to do it at a time when a) "Fool for the City" was still on the best-seller lists; and, live albums were suddenly proving career-makers for the like of Kiss and (especially) Peter Frampton.

With their road-warrior image and the no-questions-asked crunch of their live show, Foghat should have been a natural. And they were---"Foghat Live" became their best-seller of all, and it deserved to be. They were wise enough not to try putting their whole show onto a single set, if they wanted to introduce the uninitiated into the big meat of what they offered, and the decision plus the band's no-frills performances clicked.

FOGHAT LIVE is perhaps one of the best live albums of its day. Powerful, super-charged rock with a Stadium fel to it. Recorded at the War Memorial in Rochester, this album portrays Foghat in their heyday; at their height. Six wonderful blues rock songs with some of the very best slide guitar ever recorded from Rod Price. Lonesome Dave's vocals are on the merk this night, not to mention the incredible rythym section of Roger Earl and Craig McGregor. Any rock fan should get this album. There's no question as to why this went double platinum upon its release. The only problem is that it's only six songs, about 43 minutes worth. This really should have been a double album, and I want to believe that there were more songs recorded on this tour that would make up a wonderful re-release on the complete concert. Wouldn't that be special. The production is awesome, the performance flawless. GET THIS CD!!! RIP LONESOME DAVE.

Foghat was one of those hard working bands that made good, basic rock music. Live always seemed a step better than studio, capturing the good time, blues-ey feel of the band. This album captures one of those moments. The songs are simple, boogie influenced, guitar showcases, featuring the slide work of rod "the bottle" price. "Fool for the City" is great opener diving right into the show with foot stompin' road song. "Home in my Hand" carries on nicely, leading into a collection of burner blues songs. Particularly outstanding is "Honey Hush" that rises into a scorching guitar duel that ends by feeding directly into a nicely drawn-out version of the band's almost anthem, "Slow Ride." This live version boils with price playing faster and faster until you wonder if he's going to melt the strings. While this album doesn't push the envelope like earlier blues rock bands (e.g. cream or hendrix) and it doesn't even attempt the braininess of other mid-seventies acts (e.g. yes or elp), it sure does make you tap your feet and smile!
