AllMusic [1]

Rock and Roll Outlaws is the fourth album by Foghat, released in October 1974. [1] The album cover shows a picture of the band near a Learjet in the Mojave Desert. Though the airplane displayed the band's logo, it did not belong to them; instead, the band simply borrowed it and stuck on the logo. [2]
