Foghat's Best Album: Classic Rock Staple Includes the Timless Hit Single "Slow Ride"

Some songs are so ingrained in our consciousness that they are immediately identifiable upon hearing one or two notes. Featuring one of rock's most indelible and classic riffs ever invented, Foghat's air-guitar anthem "Slow Ride" is such a tune. The hit single turned the British band into stars, and launched 1975's Fool for the City to the top of the charts. And what a ride it is: Classic, meat-and-potatoes 70s rock that comes with killer slide-guitar solos, driving rhythms, and soaring vocals.

Sourced from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity's remaster of this Foghat gem bring to the surface the band's marble-solid sturdiness and bluesy structures. Bass notes are thicker and richer, the dual guitars bite and snap, and the singing comes across with realistic grit. By comparison, all previous pressings of this album sound flat and boxy.


GAIN 2™ Ultra Analog™ System for Vinyl

GAIN 2 Ultra Analog™ is a proprietary cutting system built and designed by legendary design genius Tim De Paravicini, with consultation from one of Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab's founding fathers - Stan Ricker, an audio engineer responsible for many of MFSL's most heralded past releases.

The GAIN 2 Ultra Analog™ system is comprised of a Studer™ tape machine with customised reproduction electronics* and handcrafted cutting amps that drive an Ortofon cutting head on a restored Neumann VMS-70 lathe. (*It is worth noting that independent studies have confirmed that the GAIN 2 Ultra Analog™ system can unveil sonic information all the way up to 122kHz!)

First and foremost, Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs only utilise first generation original master recordings as source material for their releases. MFSL then play back master tapes at half speed enabling the GAIN 2 Ultra Analog™ system to fully extract the master's sonic information. The lacquers are then plated in a specialised process that protects transients in the musical signal. (Due to this process, there may be occasional pops or ticks inherent in initial playback, but as the disc is played more, a high-quality stylus will actually polish the grooves and improve the sound). MFSL further ensure optimum sound quality by strictly limiting the number of pressings printed for each release. These limited editions, in addition to being collectors' items, ensure that the quality of the last pressing matches the quality of the first.
