With their 21st recording, legendary blues-rockers Foghat once again prove that theyre never content to just sit on their asses and simply enjoy the ride. Last Train Home represents the bands return to the blues-influenced rock n' roll sound that has served Foghat extremely well in the past.
Last Train Home is a mix of traditional blues tunes and originals, and fulfills a dream shared by founding Foghat members Roger Earl and the late Lonesome Dave Peverette, who passed away in 2000. Among the 12 blues rock tracks on Last Train Home are numbers written by well-known blues artists like Otis Rush, Muddy Waters, Eddie Bluesman Kirkland, who makes a guest appearance on guitar and vocals in his own song, In My Dreams. Also performing on the album are Roger Earls keyboardist brother, Colin Earl, and retired New York City electrician Lefty Sugar Lips Lefkowitz, who blows a mean harmonica.
