Overview

The 13th release, and the final to appear on Bearsville records, Zig-Zag Walk is an extension of Foghat's backslide into blues- and R&B-based guitar rock. With the glory years well behind them in 1983, the band was content to churn out this rather unremarkable yet competent recording of stripped-down boogie rock. Original members Lonesome Dave Peverett (lead guitars/vocals) and Roger Earl (drums) are joined on this 1983 release by longtime contributors Erick Cartwright (guitars) and Nick Jameson (bass, keyboards). Standout tracks include "That's What Love Can Do" and "Down the Road a Piece." Equal parts good-time rock & roll and effusive musical mating calls, Zig-Zag Walk is far from the finest Foghat foray on vinyl (or silicon, where it has been packaged as a reissue with a similar release from the previous year, In the Mood for Something Rude), but not a bad piece of plastic if you're inclined to enjoy the sound of Brits toying with American boogie.
