FOGHAT – “FOOL FOR THE CITY” – CANDY419

Of all the British bands that were big in America during the 1970s, Foghat were, without doubt, the least known in the UK. With a succession of hit albums to their name it was not unusual for them to achieve gold-selling status and pack out large venues in every US city they visited. Their monstrously heavy style of twelve-bar boogie and pounding musical riffs cemented them a reputation second to none.

“Fool For The City” is a work of perfection. Produced by bassist Nick Jameson, it boasts a number of killer tracks, including the eight minute center piece “Slow Ride”, together with “Drive Me Home” (featuring the sound of a real car crashing) and the crushing title track. Housed in one of the most humorous album sleeves of the era, the record is a golden milestone in the hard rock pantheon.
