Editors’ Notes

To call this band “Camaro rock” is seemingly reductive, yet in context it’s kind of a compliment. The songs on this eponymous debut typify that early-’70s all-American spirit of hauling ass on open roads in big, American-made bangers. You can envisage “Highway (Killing Me)” blasting from a car’s 8-track player as it speeds by. That this blues-ripping quartet was actually British (and coproduced by Dave Edmunds) makes this album all the more remarkable. Foghat turn Willie Dixon’s “I Just Want to Make Love to You” into a gusty American FM staple and make hard drinking sound like Midwestern barroom revelry in “Trouble Trouble.” “Leavin’ Again (Again!)” is a roiling bluesy song of regret, and Chuck Berry’s “Maybelline” is anything but a bar-band throwaway; the piano and guitars are as relentless as anything Berry ever recorded. But the real gem is “Gotta Get to Know You,” a pining, knowing song of ache on which singer Lonesome Dave and band drop all roadway boogie to create a real transcendent moment in rock ’n’ roll.

Classic Rock

One of the greatest underappreciated rock albums of all time. Every song is killer!

Great Album!

This album, Foghat, of Foghat's first album, is by far one of the greatest. Not a single bad song on this whole album. If you love Foghat, make sure you get this album. It's worth it. After this album try looking into getting Stone Blue or Fool for the City. Those are both great albums also.


Go Foghat!!! I just want to make love to you is the best song on here by far! What a way for these guys to kick off a career. Buy this album and all the rest cuz Foghat kicks ***!

Foghat specialized in a simple, hard-rocking blues-rock, releasing a series of best-selling albums in the mid-'70s. While the group never deviated from their basic boogie, they retained a large audience until 1978, selling out concerts across America and earning several gold or platinum albums. Once punk and disco came along, the band's audience dipped dramatically. With its straight-ahead, three-chord romps, the band's sound was American in origin, yet the members were all natives of England. Guitarist/vocalist...
