Daddy Warbucks - try this on Youtube and download it using Torch browser - it will strip the audio out - let it down the MP4 video and then it will download the audio as aac.

Background
Over the years, I've always put Foghat in the same camp as Aussie legends AC/DC. Not for the fact that they are similar musically or success-wise, because they aren't. The comparison is made when it comes for each band to deliver a new album, and that is: you know what you're gonna get when they release a new album. No surprises at all, and if you've bought a Foghat album back in every decade since they first sprouted wings, then a degree of familiarity will be as welcome as the front-door mat in front of the House Of Blues. I haven't bought a Foghat album in ages, though have picked up a bit of their back-catalogue cheaply on CD as and when the opportunity arose. Their latest 2010 effort 'Last Train Home' won't pull any punches and is not designed to reinvent the wheel - which is something the Foghat boys can never be accused of doing.


The Songs
The material on this CD has blues and classic rock written all over it, but I'm thinking that much of the appeal that Foghat had in the 70's and 80's is now lost. There's a heavy traditional blues and honky tonk presence here. Good for those that are into this style, and it probably suits the band and their die-hard audience, particularly if you like Texan styled blues or the southern delta style. There's a heap of boogie n blues moments, honky tonk piano and the obligatory harmonica as well. Considering Foghat were derived from that late 60's British Blues invasion, the band have gone full circle and embodied themselves in the original American blues movement. The band hustle and bustle on tracks such as 'Born For The Road' and 'Shake Your Money Maker', and when they immerse themselves into three-chord mode for a true-blue workout, then the triumvirate of 'It Hurts Me Too', 'Louisiana Blues' and '495 Boogie' is guaranteed to bring home the bacon.


In Summary
'Last Train Home' probably won't appeal to the majority of the GDAZE readership, but it's good to catch up with the band after many years, and though not a touch on their 70's glory days, you'll be pleased that this outfit keep on delivering through the years. For true blues fans only I would suggest.

Has the name Foghat really put out anything substantial since 'Live' and 'Stone Blue'? 1979's 'Boogie Hotel' was the last album I bought from 'em... Still love the Foghat logo though.
