Foghat Songs Ranked

Foghat is an English rock band formed in London in 1971. The band initially featured Dave Peverett (“Lonesome Dave”) on guitar and vocals, Tony Stevens on bass, and Roger Earl on drums, after all, three musicians left Savoy Brown in 1971. Rod Price, on guitar/slide guitar, joined after he left Black Cat Bones in December 1970. The new line-up was named “Foghat” (a nonsense word from a Scrabble-like game played by Peverett and his brother) in January 1971. There is a cartoon drawing on the back cover of the group’s first album of a head wearing a Foghat. Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin wore a white Foghat for a short time during 1970 in concert. The band is known for the use of electric slide guitar in their music.

10. Chateau Lafitte ’59 Boogie (Rock and Roll Outlaws, 1974)

“If you like Foghat then you’ll love this piece. Six minutes and 14 seconds of classic boogie. A little thin conversion from vinyl but the bass is strong and makes good listening.”

9. Sweet Home Chicago (Stone Blue, 1978)

“The cover of “Sweet Home Chicago” may come off as somewhat predictable – blues-rock band covering a blues classic – but it is loud, raucous, and energetic.”

8. Fool’s Hall of Fame (Foghat, 1972)

“I’m not normally much of a Foghat fan, but this first album rocks pretty hard. Steady blues boogie rumble that’s worth playing once every ten years or so.”

7. Drivin Wheel (Night Shift, 1976)

“My favorite Foghat cut ( Drivin’ Wheel ) is off this platter but Nightshift is just an average Foghat release. Lots of toe tappers and they flat-out rock. The wailing guitars of Lonesome Dave Preverett and Rod Price are allover the place. Gotta love it.”

6. Gotta Get to Know You (Foghat, 1972)

“The closing track “Gotta Get to Know You” is totally different that the rest of the album. It goes more progressive with some mellotron background absent in the other tracks ; Then the bass guitar plays such a great partition.”

5. My Babe (Foghat, 1972)

“This album is filled with some fantastic guitar work and well it sounds similar to Savoy Brown (gee I wonder why) but with better vocals in my opinion. “

4. I Just Want to Make Love to You (Foghat, 1972)

“I have a soft spot for Foghat apparently. The vocals are disjointed here, and they sound terribly original and novel. I am loving it, I like some of the goofy shit of the ’70s like Tiny Tim and The Residents but I always love to come back to this type of stuff.”

3. Fool for the City (Fool for the City 1975)

“While the sexually charged “Slow Ride” was the major hit from Foghat’s wild Fool for the City album, the title track is equally as powerful. The energized rocker rips behind a kick ass riff and killer lyrics that tell the story of moving from the laid back countryside to the heart of the congested city.”

2. Slow Ride (Fool for the City 1975)

“This song is so fun. The instrumentation is loose and produces a fantastic groove. The guitar riffs in this song are absolutely sick despite being outwardly similar to other greasy rock songs, and the hard rock drumming here is superb. It works remarkably well both as a driving anthem and as an earwormy hard rock throwback. There is so much happening in “Slow Ride” that one can easily ignore the basic and repetitive lyrics and jam out.”

1. Burning the Midnight Oil (Burning the Midnight Oil, 1976)

“When considering Night Shift, a number of things come into play, not the least being that of Dan Hartman, fresh from the Edgar Winter Group, who took on the duties of producer, hoping to capture the feeling of a life Foghat event by hardening the instrumentation and sound of the band, which in turn sharpened the band’s clarity and their blues roots persona, bringing forth a cohesiveness, along with the band’s innate strengths, highlighting sumptuous hooks and presentations that will call out to you to this very day.”
