Background: Released in 1975, Fool for the City was the album that finally made Foghat a household name.  The album reached #23 on the U.S. charts and was certified Platinum by the RIAA. gave Fool for the City a 4 1/2 star review:

After building a solid core audience through relentless touring and a string of hard-rocking albums, Foghat finally hit the big time in 1975 with Fool for the City. It still stands out as the best album in the group’s catalog because it matched their road-tested abilities as hard rockers to a consistent set of tunes that were both well-crafted and ambitious. The tone for the album is set by its title track: This hard-rocking gem not only pairs riff-driven verses with an effective shout-along chorus, but also throws in a few surprising moments where the guitars are taken out of the mix completely and Nick Jameson’s bass is allowed to take the lead in a funky breakdown. …All in all, Fool for the City is both Foghat’s finest achievement in the studio and one of the high points of 1970s hard rock.
