Many people who have loved Foghat over the years will not bother with this album as Lonsome Dave is no longer with us.But Charlie Huhn does an excellent job on a quite brilliant album. All the great Foghat traits are on here, cracking boogie songs (self-medicated) and tributes to Dave himself (Thames Delta Blues) plus a whole array of songs that would have sounded great with Dave singing them. You can`t replace the great man, but the new Foghat have carried on a great tradition. The songs are strong, the music rocks along and there is no need to despair, Foghat live on !

Hot Damn 25 Aug. 2003
By brent j. lewis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I first heard foghat in 1973 just after the release of thier first self titled album. I was immediately hooked. I've been a huge fan ever since. This new album without Rod Price on guitar or Lonsome Dave on vocals did concern me. But after listening one time I could feel again the magic this band created over 30 years ago. Very remarkable. This album at times reminds me of Humble Pie and one song is a perfect AC/DC meets foghat match. Throughout this album is the signature slide guitar sound that Foghat brought to hard rock. A classic example of what good 70's rock and roll was all about. Foghat creates a unique blend of blues rock with a boogie soul. Maybe that was Lonesome Dave's genius to the music he helped create. And today his spirit lives on with this excellent band who carry the ball very well. Lest we all forget it was Lonesome Dave who found Foghat's newest guitar player. Dave you were prescient once again. Buy this CD. Buy it for the 70's . Buy it because you liked Foghat in their prime. Buy it because it's better than any other wanna be 70's music being made today. Buy it because you'll absolutely love it. Buy it because this really is Foghat and they sound damn good. Somewhere in Rock N Roll heaven Lonesome Dave is smiling big time!

Not Foghat...but still damn good!! 10 Dec. 2003
By Michael Laimo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Calling this band Foghat is sorta like calling the Coverdale/Bolin led band Deep Purple. Nice try, but not the same thing. It goes to show that some people are not replaceable, as is the result here of putting Bryan Bassett and Charlie Huhn in Lonesome Dave Peverett and Rod Price's place. Lonesome Dave is simply irreplaceable...gone are his songwriting abilities and distinct voice that made Foghat the successful act they once were. Huhn provides a vocal more on par with Chris Robinson and Bon Scott, very different than Peverett's. Also, Bassett's guitar work, although quite adept, doesn't have that wild and crazy agressiveness that Rod Price displayed over the years. He's a more fitting choice than Erik Cartwright, whom Peverett originally used to replace Price, but Cartwright was a more beffitting choice given the direction the band was going in back in the early eighties. What's nice is to see Roger Earl and Tony Stevens, two musicians I've admired growing up in the 70's, still playing with an enthusiam that can't be duplicated.
But what of the music? Well, (...), IT'S GOOD!!! Let's put aside the fact that this band calls themselves Foghat (let's face it, I wouldn't have bought this CD if it went by any other name, and niether would you have--it's a marketing ploy, one that works). Here you have four very talented musicians making some very good music. There's an enthusiasm you can hear in the songs...this band had fun recording this CD, and you can hear it. Now, the tunes: there's a blues influence, that much is clear, but it's more from the hard-rock/metal edge than the blues rock-edge, although there are tunes that could've been recorded by Foghat, like Sex with the Ex, and Self Medicated. But there's some songs that sound like AC/DC with Bon Scott (I'm A Rock 'N Roller), The Black Crowes (Mean Woman Blues, I Feel Fine), and Stevie Ray Vaughn (Hit The Ground Running). Really, there's not a bad track here. Fans of the Blues-influenced sound will love it. I haven't had an opportunity to see this version of Foghat handle the classics...I'd imagine they'd do a wonderful job. well, whether you want to call them Foghat or not, this is a band that deserves some recognition.

They Are Back 25 May 2003
By R. McWilliams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Foghat "Family Joules" is a statement of endurance and reinvention. This legendary band continues after the death of leader/founding member Lonesome Dave Peverett with a collection of 13 new songs that are steeped in the Foghat family tradition of blues, boogie and straight-ahead rock. All songs are written, arranged, performed and produced by the band which features original Savoy Brown/Foghat drummer extrordinaire- ROGER EARL and also from the beginning, on bass, Tony Stevens. Bryan Bassett on lead and slide guitar has a rich history in rock and has guested on several past Foghat tours. Lead vocals and guitar are handled by Charlie Huhn from Detroit and a veteran of Ted Nugent, Humble Pie, Victory and many more.
Opening with a bluesy rocker Mumbo Jumbo from Charlie, the band exercises great restraint, letting you know that the sound is just as much what you don't play, as it is in the licks. Tony's "Hero to Zero" is a great telling of the "rags to riches to rags" life of a musician. His groove is unforgettable.
Next is a tribute to the late Lonesome Dave and dedicated to his son Jason. Thames Delta Blues is another great story behind an infectious riff about Dave's humble beginnings in rock. Flat Busted is a cool twist with it's "Faces/Humble Pie" feel. Charlie is a great singer in the tradition of Steve Winwood/Steve Marriott and he turns on a smokey tone for Bryan's I Feel Fine. This song simmers under the surface and has some of the best guitar work EVER.
There is everything you would expect from a Foghat album--guitars,guitars,guitars,riffs,incendiary vocals,slide,slide,guitars, and THE MOST RESPECTED RHYTHM SECTION IN ROCK AND ROLL!
Caution-- Listening to this three times within 24 hours is definitely addictive-ENJOY. RC McWilliams

Actually More Authentic Savoy Brown Than Savoy Brown ! 6 Aug. 2003
By "The Woj" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This release features two original members ( Tony Stevens & Roger Earl) of two classic bands: Savoy Brown & Foghat. Actually these guys have more of a right to call themselves Savoy Brown than Savoy Brown does (did you get that?). As for Foghat, so what if there's only two original members? I'm sure these guys have Lonesome Dave's blessing and all that matters! This is Foghat, this is a band, and they flat out can still rock. Vocal duties are taken over by veteran rocker Charlie Huhn (yes that Charlie, of Ted's Weekend Warriors years). Lead guitarist Bryan Bassett rounds out the band. I really want to stress this album is by a band; not one guy and a bunch of hired guns. The songs are a group effort and really very good; and the musicianship top-notch. Agreed this is no "Fool For The City" or "Energized", but how can it be without Lonesome Dave & Rocket Rod Price?
So what? It takes nothing away from this fine effort and any Foghat fan or lover of 70's blues rock will enjoy this cd more than a few times. Let's just hope these guys are just getting warmed up.
