For longtime fans of British blues-rockers Foghat, the band’s cover of Willie Dixon’s “I Just Want to Make Love to You” might be the ultimate example of their sound. Their cranked-up, electrified version of the blues standard actually reached the U.S. Singles Chart twice, first when it was originally released in 1972, and more successfully in its raucous live version released in 1977. For a generation or two of more casual fans, though, there’s nothing more Foghat than “Slow Ride,” and specifically when it cranks up for the closing scene in Dazed and Confused. I’d hazard a guess they’ll play both of those tunes and then some when they’re in town Sunday.
