Back To The Fog (CD)
FOGHAT WERE AT ONE TIME THE BIGGEST GROSSING BRITISH ACT WORKING THE US STADIA CIRCUIT ALONG WITH LED ZEPPELIN AND THE WHO. DURING THEIR PEAK THE BAND ACHIEVED SOME 30 MILLION ALBUMS SALES.
Tony Stevens, original bass player for Foghat (who were originally formed as a breakaway project from Savoy Brown having taken the influence of blues boogie from Savoy Brown and injected it with a heavier metal sound), brings his down and dirty blues based rock music into the 21st century. Recruiting former Foghat drummer Eddie Zyne, multi-instrumentalist (guitar, keyboards, harmonica, and vocals) Tommy Hall, and former "Clarence Clemons Temple Of Soul" and "The Livesays" frontman (slide guitar, lead vocals) Billy Livesay. Stevens has assembled a top notch power blues rock outfit that captures the pure essence of 70s arena rock to a tee. Using tight, intense, rhythm based rock to frame a pristine guitar sound and listener friendly vocals,." Tony Stevens Foghat conjures up not only Foghat, but pre-80's Aerosmith, Bad Company, Thin Lizzy, Nazareth, Edgar Winter, Spooky Tooth, Blue Cheer, and even The Amboy Dukes, to name a few. To say this could be used as a primer is to understate what should be the obvious - Can anyone improve Dylan's classic, especially when they change the entire arrangement and meter of the song? Listen to this rendition and realize/believe how vital the blues based rock genre of the late 60s to mid 70s was. If any band nowadays were to come anywhere near as close to the cohesiveness of this unit, they could sweep the concert circuit for years. 30 plus years later Tony Stevens Foghat is still cruising.
