FOGHAT ON THE ROAD with 2018 “STONE BLUE” TOUR
Foghat are truly a gift to rock music & boogie band enthusiasts worldwide. The nucleus of the quartet were originally from the British blues powerhouse Savoy Brown, and left to form their own trail blazing band in 1972.
In 1978, "Stone Blue" was a huge hit for the band, thanks to number of smash tracks and stellar blues interpretations that have been considered some of their finest material ever.
Kicking things off with the hard rockin’ slide guitar infused "Stone Blue" followed by Bo Diddley’s classic "Chevrolet", a fine reading of Elmore James’ "It Hurts Me Too" & Robert Johnson’s "Sweet Home Chicago", the Lp was truly a home run.
Friday Music is pleased to announce The Foghat /Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with the 40th Anniversary Edition of their masterpiece "Stone Blue."
The Lp is mastered impeccably by Joe Reagoso and will be manufactured for a limited time on stunning translucent blue audiophile vinyl, presented in a striking gatefold cover, with new liners from co-founder Roger Earl and the late Craig MacGregor.
