Dave Peverett (“Lonesome Dave”) , Tony Stevens, and Roger Earl, founding members of Foghat, were great fans of Chicago blues. Foghat is remembered as a blues rock/boogie band and the founding members had spent their time with Kim Simmonds in Savoy Brown

Foghat recorded Willie Dixon’s song “I Just Want to Make Love to You” and during one tour, they had an opportunity to visit and jam with Willie.

WIllie’s advise to the guys came in 3 simple words - ‘Slowwww…... it .......down!!!’ Willie Dixon’s songs typically were not what would be called uptempo

This is good documentary and performance by Willie Dixon

O yeah 8 track tapes. Wedge a book of matches under the left side of the cartridges so that the tape would align better with the playback head. Yep remember them well

What about its predecessor, the 4 track? It was mono version - wasn’t available long before the stereo version came about. Kinda like Sony Beta vs VHS

I only remember seeing the mono version 4 track tapes once or twice. Iron Butterfly’s In A Gadda Davida and Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass were the only titles that I remember on them

My son & I were just talking how the CD display at Best Buy is either shrinking or non-existent. Huge change in the past 4-5 yrs.
I don’t remember the last time that I bought a CD.

we have a bunch up in the cupboard that never get played any more,we have recorded the songs we like onto the computer then on to the mp3 or i pod
its got to be hard for the bands. it use to be they could have 2 or 3 really really good songs on an album, and the rest maybe not so good. but you had to buy them all to get the ones you wanted. I think thats why AC/DC held off so long putting their songs on I tunes
