Foghat's First LP

This is Foghat’s first album LP, from 1972. It was produced by Dave Edmunds. My good pal Nick in the UK knows Dave. They both live near Wales. This record, has a well-played cover version of Willie Dixon's "I Just Want to Make Love to You." This album has their first and only once-used band logo in bubble letters. Their band logo used from then on is way cooler. From the band’s website, "Dave [Edmonds] was very much into early Elvis and the Sun Records thing," Lonesome Dave Peverett recalled. "I loved the phasing effects he got on the vocals. He wasn't scared to try off-the-wall sound ideas."
