Fool for the CD? Foghat releasing CD version of "Live at the Belly Up" album in June

Foghat RecordsIn February, Foghat released a new digital live album called Live at the Belly Up that captured an August 2016 show at the Belly Up tavern in Solana Beach, California, and now the veteran boogie-rock band has announced plans to issue the record on CD on June 30.

Live at the Belly Up features the rockers playing a set that included such classics as "Slow Ride," "Fool for the City" and their cover of blues great Willie Dixon's "I Just Want to Make Love to You," as well as three tunes from the band's 2016 studio album, Under the Influence.

In advance of the release of the Live at the Belly Up CD, Foghat has launched a PledgeMusic campaign offering fans the chance to pre-order the disc and also purchase special packages that include custom merchandise, collectibles and VIP experiences.

The group also will be appearing at several stops of the Jeff and Larry's Backyard BBQ Comedy and Music Festival, hosted by Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy and taking place in various U.S. locations in August and September.
