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 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, with fresh arrangements that often surpass the studio versions: “I Just Want to Make Love to You,” “Fool For The City” and “Slow Ride,” which hit the Billboard singles chart on this day in 1976. The double-Platinum FOGHAT LIVE was the U.K. quartet's best-selling album, and one listen makes it easy to hear why.
