26092014 - Foghat "Stone Blue"

Leave it to Foghat to be totally predictable and utterly brilliant at the same time. This album from 1978 showcases the band doing what they do best, which is delivering hard blues rock, boogie and some hints of country. And although their choices of cover songs (Robert Johnson's "Sweet Home Chicago" and Elmore James' "It Hurts Me Too" standing out here) are far from original the Brits deliver them with all the edge and attitude needed to make them sound fresh and justify their inclusion. If you're looking for a reinventioning of the wheel, Foghat was never your band, but as far as rolling steadily goes this is about as good as it gets.
