If you were a Savoy Brown fan, and were fortunate to enjoy the lineup that contained “Lonesome” Dave Peverett, Tone Stevens, and Roger Earl, then it wasn’t long before you began to enjoy the power and grace of an upstart Blues/Rock band by the unlikely name of Foghat. Foghat is the band that the three bandmates formed after leaving Kim Simmonds’ great band. Their first album featured a strong cover of Chuck Berry’s “Maybelline”, and their unmatched electric cover of Willie Dixon’s timeless “I Just Want To Make Love To You”.
By the time their reached their second album, the picture-titled Rock and Roll, they were on a row towards their inevitable fame. They managed a strong eight year run that peaked with their Live album from 1977.
On April 15, Bearsville Records will present a 13CD Boxed set of all their label issues of Foghat albums. This starts at their 1972 self-titled debut and finishes with Zig Zag Walk from 1983. The original band released a phenomenal album eleven years later called Return Of The Boogie Men. (If you do not have or heard this album, you should hunt it down as it’s a worthy slot to the other Foghat material.
The 13CD Foghat Box is being called The Complete Bearsville Albums Collection and will feature completely new 2016 remastering to freshen the audio up. Compelling enough? I think so!
