FOOL FOR THE CITY
4 ½ Stars – All Music Guide
Foghat's best studio album, a platinum seller, contains the hit singles Slow Ride and Fool For The City.
Built around three members of the original British blues band Savoy Brown, it only took a few years for Foghat to make their bones. Signed to one of the coolest indie labels at the time, Bearsville, they hit pay-dirt with the 1975 release of Fool For The City. The highlight is the perennial Slow Ride, which has become (almost automatically) associated with nostalgic remembrances ranging from That '70s Show and Dazed And Confused to approximately a gazillion '70's music compilations (our fave: Mullets Rock!).
The band's infectious hook-laden blues-rock hybridity is no better served than on a rousing, very Zep-like electric take of Robert Johnson's Terraplane Blues. Hold your lighters high and proud.
