best Foghat cd
on February 25, 2010
It should be noted that Foghat started out as Savoy Brown, Dave, Tony and Roger left to form their own band and recruited Rod Price on slide. Craig MacGregor joined on the Fool for the City tour on bass, this is the first album with him. I like this and Stone Blue best, but am very partial to Energized and Rock&Roll Outlaws as well, so if you like Foghat for Foghat and not just Slow Ride you will love this cd. This has what I feel is the best Take me to the River ever recorded by anyone, Driving Wheel and Don't Run Me Down(which I believe VanHalen stole for Poundcake) rock out hard, all great driving tunes too, especially Night Shift. The guitar work is killer, Foghat never got just due for the great musicianship they portrayed and continue to. This is a Foghat fans album and if you aren't one, it will make you one.
The review about the song times and 45 version is wrong, I just bought this and they are all exactly as long as the LP. You probably ran into a Rhino album, I had many an issue with Rhino records releasing 45 versions of songs especially Slow Ride, this release is true to the album. This is the original, thought you should know, I bought it 1/10.
