FOGHAT Night Shift
Wounded Bird WOU6962 (40:37)(2006)

This classic 1976 set, when blues rockers Foghat were at the height of their stadium success, was what the band were promoting when they recorded one of the best live albums of all time. Here it gets a long overdue reissue, with the Sanctuary CDs now long out of print.

The sound is solid and bright, sounding good on CD, and it comes bolstered with the previously unreleased New Place To Call Home. Shame that the 2 page booklet is embarrassingly light and uninformative.

Opening with the hard Driving Wheel, with plenty of riffs and intricate guitar work, Burnin’ The Midnight Oil also features some excellent solos and bass lines. The title track is Foghat boogie at its very best, and there’s also one of the best versions of Take Me To The River you’ll hear.

Classic album, good CD, shame about the packaging. Plenty more in the catalogue for them to improve on.
