Album of the Day
The 1970s represented a golden age for both arena rock and live albums, and the two intersect to magnificent effect on FOGHAT LIVE. The half-dozen songs on the 1977 Bearsville collection push blues 'n' boogie into overdrive, offering plenty of room for "Lonesome" Dave Peverett's rafter-rattling vocals and Rod Price's slide guitar to stretch out. Recorded at the peak of Foghat's popularity, the concert included all their best-known songs (“Slow Ride,” “I Just Want to Make Love to You,” “Fool For The City”) with fresh arrangements that often surpass the studio versions. Released 40 years ago this month, the double-Platinum FOGHAT LIVE was the U.K. quartet's best-selling album, and one listen makes it easy to hear why.
