Drivin' Wheels: Best Of 1972-1982 (Double CD) RVCD-382

For the only Double CD set that comprehensively covers the career of boogie-blues masters FOGHAT, look no further than Drivin’ Wheels: Best Of 1972-1982. This exciting compilation combines the absolute best Foghat tracks, 32 in total culled from the band’s astonishing run of superb Gold and Platinum-selling albums. Not only does Drivin’ Wheels contain many key tracks from 10 albums but also most importantly here are the original full-length studio album versions of all their hit singles – ‘I Just Want to Make Love to You’, ‘Ride, Ride, Ride’, ‘Fool for the City’, ‘Drivin’ Wheel’, ‘Stone Blue’ and their monumental, eight-minute showstopper ‘Slow Ride’.

When it comes to hard-driving blues rock and boogie, Foghat were masters of the form. The band’s sound was American in origin but the members came from the UK with guitarists ‘Lonesome’ Dave Peverett and Rod Price once being part of the similarly styled Savoy Brown. Throughout the 1970s Foghat reigned supreme on the US touring circuit. “They never deviated from their straight-ahead, three-chord romps and always lived up to audience expectations” (All Music). Their albums Energized, Night Shift, Fool for the City and Stone Blue stand up remarkably well but their pinnacle achievement came with the towering, two-million selling Live album. Included here are the killer, full-length live versions of ‘Fool for the City’, ‘I Just Want To Make Love To You’ and ‘Honey Hush’. Superb audio quality and detailed liner notes, this power-packed double CD is a must for fans of classic rock and blues-tilted boogie.
