    A year or two ago, I bought Foghat's 1975 album Fool For the City. It was a solid album (barring "Take It or Leave It"), and I'm considering buying another album by them because they rock. Which other album(s) would you recommend?

    Hey dude you gotta get Foghat Live from 1977 it's actually a 'killer live album' even though it was possibly only put out to keep the fans happy or the record company wanted some 'product' released I don't know the background on this particular Foghat album but it's a good listen from start to finish with 7 live tracks in all. The lead off track Fool For The City is a killer song played live and finishes off with a great version of Slow Ride.

    I remember hearing on the radio when 'Lonesome' Dave Peverett from Foghat died back in 2000.

    Foghat Live is one of those 'cool live albums' from the 1970s that bands and record companies use to release and is a bit like the Johnny Winter Captured Live album from 1975 with both albums kicking off with a up tempo rocker and then never letting up until crossing the finishing line!!. Both the Foghat & Johnny Winter live albums sound like they were both recorded in a open air stadium possibly during daylight in front of an enthusiastic crowd judging by the photographs on both album covers.

    Foghat Live is quite possibly one of the greatest live rock albums ever recorded!. Ok it's probably not in the same league as Deep Purple's Made In Japan (1972) but it's in the same league as Johnny Winter Captured Live (1975) & Pat Travers Live!. Go For What You Know (1979)
