Fool for the City was the fifth album released by Englishrock band Foghat, released in 1975. This was their first platinum album and features, along with the title track, their most famous song "Slow Ride".
The album cover shows drummer Roger Earl sitting alone on a soap box fishing down a manhole in the middle of East 11th Street (between 2nd and 3rd Avenue) in New York City, near the address of Foghat's American office. The back cover features skeptical bystanders observing Earl's unusual activity and the other members of the band either asking him what he is doing or trying to dissuade him from it.
When "Slow Ride" appears on compilation albums, it is typically featured as a four-minute radio edit version. Some compilations also use an edited version of the title track, trimming much of the middle section.
