Classic Foghat and J. Geils Band Albums to Be Reissued on Vinyl
Two classic albums from the ‘70s are about to get reissued on vinyl. March 3 will see the release of Foghat’s 1977 ‘Foghat Live’ and the J. Geils Band’s 1973 breakthrough, ‘Bloodshot.’
The Second Disc breaks the news that Real Gone Music is pulling out all stops for both albums. ‘Foghat Live’ recreates the original’s diecut jacket and the four-color cardboard “Eurosleeve.” At six songs totaling 38 minutes, it captures the boogie band in its natural setting, performing the hits ‘Slow Ride’ and ‘I Just Want to Make Love to You.’ When first released in 1977, it became the group's most popular album, selling two million copies and reaching No. 11.
‘Bloodshot’ arrived only seven months after ‘“Live” Full House’ gave the J. Geils Band their first taste of success. Featuring the Top 30 hit, ‘Give It to Me,’ ‘Bloodshot’ became the band's first Top 10 album. This reissue reproduces the first pressings of the record, complete with red vinyl and a ‘50s-style Atlantic Records label.
Other artists whose works will be reissued by Real Gone in March include Four Seasons producer Bob Crewe, Johnny Mathis, soul singer Betty LaVette, Perry Como and Peggy Lee.
