    Where's a net, I've got some mullets to catch!!! You really have to take these songs out for a ride to get the maximum pleasure.

  1. cool. right down my alley. I'm a big fan of "bang your head," and Foghat is a hugely underated band in my opinion. I've to lots of their albums. SLow ride is magnificient

    What a great set of tunes for today! Takes me right back to my younger days when I could do some head-banging and not get a headache or feel like I was going to throw out my back!

    Way back in the late 1970's Foghat was the very first concert that I ever went to at the Philadelphia Spectrum. Their opening band was Cheap Trick and I still remember Bun E. Carlos throwing his drumsticks out into the crowd. What great memories!

    Slow ride, take it easy! That's a motto for today in NE Ohio. Has been snowing for quite a lot and ODOT is not keeping up with cleaning up roads.
    Have a great weekend, Trav!
    P.S. And yes, I am banging my head as I keep singing ;)

  1. Great set,I hav not heard Slow Ride in a long time.thanks for sharing it.

  1. I'm going to let 5 on Friday slide on by this week, but I'll be back for the party next week.

    And along with the other Slow Ride fans, you KNOW I love my Led Zeppelin's Rock and Roll.
