Foghat's "Slow Ride" was released in 1975 from the band's "Fool for the City" album.
Nick Jameson played on the original studio version for 1975 album, and Craig MacGregor, who joined the band shortly thereafter played "Slow Ride" on 1977's LIVE album.
This song was written by the group's lead singer, David "Lonesome Dave" Peverett, who died in 2000. In various interviews since Peverett's death, Foghat drummer Roger Earl has explained that this song has a very literal inspiration: an actual slow ride with traffic at a near standstill.
