Album Review

It seemed like just about every major rock band of the '70s used the live album format as a trampoline to arena status. The likes of Peter Frampton, Kiss, and Cheap Trick immediately come to mind as the most obvious examples, but there were also a multitude of other acts that scored big hits with live sets, including Foghat with their double-platinum certified 1977 release, Foghat Live. Despite the set being the group's biggest selling album of their entire career, they surprisingly never issued a follow up — until 2007 and the arrival of Live II. The only thing is, with the group's two main original members no longer with us (singer/guitarist Dave Peverett and guitarist Rod Price) and a third opting to "sit this one out" (bassist Tony Stevens), it leaves only a lone original member in attendance, drummer Roger Earl. While some die-hard longtime fans will balk at this lack of original members, the truth is that the latest Foghat lineup has no problem replicating the group's anthemic hard rock sound. Recorded in July 2005 at the Sycuan Theatre in El Cajon, CA, the double-disc Live II features all the expected radio classics ("Fool for the City," "Slow Ride"), as well as fan favorites ("Night Shift," "Stone Blue"). And staying true to their '70s roots, you get not one but two unaccompanied/bathroom-break-inducing one-man solos. Add to it a few bonus rehearsal tracks, and you have a worthy follow-up to Foghat Live.

Customer Reviews

Amazing live album

Foghat is one of the best live bands ever. This new release shows really shows that.

A Quarter Better Than None

I've been following these guys since Savoy Brown so it's tough to get overly excited by this offering. However, with that said, there’s a still lot to like on Live 2. I have a soft spot for Lonesome Dave's vocals so I'm biased but this is still good. Drivin' Wheel is one of Foghat's most underrated tunes plus Stone Blue is always good with Bryan Basset laying down some sweet licks. The standards are here plus Chateau Lafitte '59 Boogie which will always remind me of Rock and Roll Outlaws. One hell of an album. Anyway, I guess this will do because we don't have any other choice. Keep rockin' Foghat!

Foghat Still Rocks!

I have seen Foghat live, the past two years when they have come to our city. I saw them with Lonesome Dave, and Rod Price years ago. No, they are not the same band BUT they both still rock! They play straight ahead in your face rock and roll. Without question, one of the best live performance bands. You live the music. You feel it. AND now days, the band even stays after to sign autographs. Great stuff!

Foghat specialized in a simple, hard-rocking blues-rock, releasing a series of best-selling albums in the mid-'70s. While never deviating 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 their straight-ahead, three-chord romps, Foghat's sound was American in origin, yet the members were all natives of England. Guitarist/vocalist...
