Overview

Most listeners, perhaps even some hardcore fans of "Slow Ride," would be shocked to discover Foghat kept on recording into the age of MTV. This is one of many little revelations packed into Raven's 2014 retrospective Drivin' Wheels: Best of 1972-1982, the first-ever double-disc compilation of the hard-boogying '70s band. Casual observers will be surprised by the cool breeze of the unheralded yacht rock jam "Take It or Leave It," and they may not know that the group covered Al Green's "Take Me to the River" in 1976, adding some extraneous words to the chorus. Not every album is equally represented -- 1974's Foghat (Rock and Roll), 1975's Rock & Roll Outlaws, 1975's Fool for the City and 1977's Live provide the heaviest chunks of material -- and there are also some singles from their twilight years M.I.A. (no "Slipped, Tripped Fell in Love," "Live Now-Pay Later," "Stranger in My Home Town"). This means Drivin' Wheels is a portrait of Foghat at their hardest and heaviest, something for the fans of "Fool for the City" and "Slow Ride" who want some more of that high-octane rush.
