Foghat – The Best of Foghat

CD Posted on January 3, 2013 at 7 h 49 min
Like so many other bands who formed in the early '70s, Foghat's sound was based upon the wails and moans of the blues guitar. Foghat took this basic structure and added a rowdy four-bar boogie feel to it, cranked the amps to 11, and unleashed a series of LPs that would achieve gold or platinum status. "Best of Foghat" captures the band's finer moments. "Slow Ride" with its funky-boogie bass line and guitar harmony leads was every air-guitarist's dream come true, and the long breakdown at the song's mid-point that finally erupted into scorching fret work epitomized the "big rock ending" of the 1970s. "Fool for the City" was another rush of rock and roll adrenaline, with its repeated chorus and steady straight four/four beat. "I Just Want to Make Love to You" also demonstrated singer Dave Peverett's bluesy growl, an influence that often seemed more prevalent in the band's guitar work. --"Steve Gdula"
