Foghat - Night Shift (1976 uk, tough 'n' roll, japan remaster with extra track)

Night Shift is a great Rock And Roll album. Combining Southern Rock, Blues Rock, & Boogie Rock, and playing them with a Hard Rock crunch, Foghat came up with a great signature sound. NIGHT SHIFT features some excellent songs; "Drivin' Wheel" is a great uptempo rocker, "Don't Run Me Down" shows a nice tempo change from a midtempo verse to a fast and frantic chorus, and is another great song. "Burnin' The Midnight Oil" is a great straight-ahead Hard-Edged Rock And Roll song, while "Night Shift" is a fantastic Hard Boogie song with a great sense of groove.

 "Hot Shot Love" is a good Rock song with some nice dynamics, and their cover of "Take Me To The River" is actually a bit reminiscent of their version of "I Just Wanna Make Love To You." The album closes out with a solid Blues Rock song in "I'll Be Standing By." There's not even one bad song on the album. If you don't own any Foghat relaese, this is a good one to start with, along with Fool For The City.

YOur links don't seem to work... couldn't get Kooper/Bloomfield or Tim Hardin.
I used xara password but got this:
Encrypted file: CRC failed in Akop Mblo Ls Conc mpt/Al Kooper, Mike Bloomfield - The Lost Concert Tapes, Filmore East 1968/Artwork/Thumbs.db (password incorrect ?)

Check your caps-lock button (must be off),
or language (must be in English),
or maybe you haven't complete the d/l.
Since no other mentioned any problems i can't think anything else, I'll check it as soon as possible.
Thank you.
