Editors’ Notes

It’s no wonder so many consider Foghat’s Live one of the greatest rock ’n’ roll albums ever. It simply smokes. (It also sold in excess of 2 million copies, making it the band’s biggest.) The opener, “Fool for the City,” sets the tone and finds a band playing with enough passion, verve, and voracious riffage to incite a packed arena. Then, with monster power chords, dueling solos, and the potent vocals of ex–Savoy Brown man Dave Peverett, the extended (and declarative!) Willie Dixon jam “I Just Want to Make Love to You” shows why it became a late-’70s FM radio anthem. The three-chord blueser “Road Fever” is the song equivalent of an 18-wheeler motoring down the freeway, while Rod Price’s inventive soloing highlights the Bad Company–like “Home in My Hand.” The hip-swaying power of the band classic “Slow Ride” gives new, deeper context to that song’s meaning. In short, there isn’t a Foghat studio album that matches the fire of this release. It also shows how this British band sounded more like American hard rock than most Yankee outfits of the era.

Customer Reviews

This album rocks!

Foghat was my very first rock concert in 1977. I was tenth row center, and I thought I had died and gone to heaven. My ears were ringing for days! This album captures that feeling to the note. Solid 70's power guitar licks, and wailing vocals. It is a must for any classic rock collection.

Very Good

Foghat is a band that helped to define '70s hard rock in its entirety. They are tight live, as exemplified by this album, but add cool improvisational touches that really show what an excellent band Foghat really was.

Lonesome Dave lives forever!!!

These guys were a power quartet band with Lonesome Dave leading the pack. This live album exudes pure soulful Rock-n- Roll. It rocks hard, and to the point.

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

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...
