Click here to check a 70’s lost classic from Foghat “Somebody’s Been Sleepin’ In My Bed”

Buy “Boogie Motel”…Foghat goes a little unnoticed at the end of the 70’s…but there is still some quality tunes to be had on this one.

    This record, in fact this band, is gets really short shrift. If they hadn’t released Slow Ride, their obligatory 70’s style monster hit that many would lump in with Freebird, Green Grass & High Tides, Life’s Been Good So Far, Won’t Get Fooled Again, Stairway To Heaven and a handful others back in the day, they might not have been seen as a parody of themselves. Foghat gets a notoriously bad rap, but I loved ’em. I bought every single LP right up until 1982’s In The Mood For Something Rude. Boogie Motel had flat awesome tracks on it like Paradise Alley, Love in Motion and Third Time Lucky. Curiously, Somebody’s Been Sleepin’ in My Bed wasn’t one of my favorites, but I’m glad somebody is posting about these guys. I can’t even pin point where it all sort of went off the rails for Foghat, but I was, and remain, a big fan of theirs. I was sorry to hear when Lonesome Dave and Rod Price moved on to the Rock & Roll Heaven this past decade. I’m voting for 1973’s Rock & Roll as their best album, but the first six records were a blast. I love their cover of It Hurts Me Too from 1978’s Stone Blue. It might be my favorite version of that song all time and that’s saying a lot.
