If you like Foghat, then you need this album. If you like rocking blues, then you need this album. If you like righteous guitar that doesn't scream like a burning cat but instead sounds like a guitar should, then you need this album.
Just the song "Stone Blue" alone is worth the album... 8 minutes of Rod Price and 'Lonesome Dave' Peverett cranking out the blues and slide guitars, and all of it guaranteed to keep you glued in front of the speakers - but that's not all this album has to offer.
In the early 80's Foghat started doing more of a standard rock sound, doing less and less of their original blues and slide... this album is one of the last of their true blues roots, and it is very good.
Every song here is worth listening to, but the above average songs are "Chevrolet", "Sweet Home Chicago", and "Midnight Madness". Wait, though, there's more! Great songs include "Easy Money", "Stone Blue", and my favorite "It Hurts Me Too". Foghat always manages to bring an appealing sound to every release. Even though much of their music is blues based, they always seem to sound uptempo. Maybe it's just to make us think it's all okay.
If you are new to Foghat you may want to give their Greatest Hits a try, so, you can better decide if you would like to pursue their individual releases. Foghat will help you remember when music felt good and was fun. Excellent musicians, production, and tunes.
... That mediocre stuff is peddled and this is just ranked 51,075. This should be required listening for any real rock fan!!!
Oh well, I will hunt up my copy and be happy.
Also worth checking out if you want some real rock UFO, Nazareth, and Deep Purple. On the progressive side Asia is also under rated. Unfortunately, if you know who Foghat is you are probably already familiar with these fine bands.
Stone Blue is a track that stands out but if memory serves me everything on this recording is good. One may want to just get a best of which also contains Stone Blue and other great tracks. It totally baffles me why Stone Blue never got more air play. I guess everyone was to busy requesting better known Foghat songs. Personally Stone Blue is my all time favorite Foghat song to the point other tracks on this recording are neglected in my memory.
Still this recording is better then most of the 50,000+ that have beaten it in sales. This is the kind of music that improves your day when you really need it. This could make a good gift for a young person who likes 70s music but probably has never heard of Foghat.
The other two cuts are throwaways, but the six listed above are so solid and so well worth repeated plays that I can't rate this less than five stars. It ranks with "Fool For the City" and "Energized" as their best ever.

When it comes to 70's hard rock, not very many played it like Foghat. This album is the proof. I have owned all their albums on vinyl for years and finally found a place that will... Read morePublished on Oct. 7 1999
