Biography

Blackfoot were contemporaries of Lynyrd Skynyrd, and tried for years to make it as a Southern rock band, although they finally succeeded as a hard rock outfit, in the manner of AC/DC and the Scorpions. They racked up a hit album (Strikes) and a pair of successful singles ("Train, Train," "Highway Song") in the late 1970s and early 1980s, before they became lost in the ...

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Dr. A. Large on 1 Nov. 2005
Format: Audio CD
Blackfoot were one of the few Southern Rock bands to break into the UK at the time of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, and that is no surprise as they truly rocked and were prepared to put in the tour and festival work to promote themselves. After the early eighties, things went wrong or the band and they eventually split. Rick Medlocke tried to keep the Blackfoot name going, but eventually rejoined Lynyrd Skynyrd. The other three members eventually reformed, although sadly Jackson Spires, the drummer, recently passed away.
This live recording was made in 1983 in Hollywood for broadcast on FM radio for the King Biscuit Flower Hour. But beware – almost every Blackfoot Live album currently available (except the legendary Highway Song) is this same recording, with varying sound quality and running orders.
At the time Blackfoot had just released SIOGO, a new studio album featuring Ken Hensley (of Uriah Heep fame) on keyboards. And Ken Hensley’s keyboards feature on this live album, too. A manic but excellent version of Easy Livin’ pays homage to Hensley’s Heep days. The cover of Wishing Well is similarly treated, but this is less successful. Blackfoot classics like Rattlesnake Rock 'n' Roller, On The Run, Highway Song, Fly Away are given the usual live treatment and the only song from Siogo, Teenage Idol, is given an up-tempo airing.
One mystery is the inclusion of a studio track, Livin' In The City. Good song, but what is it doing on the end of a live album? Most probably a left over from the Siogo or Vertical Smiles sessions, as it is co-written by Hensley and appeared as the B-side of the Mornin’ Dew single in 1984.
Rick Medlocke really goes for it singing live and this really rocks up the songs.

Being a King Biscuit session, the recording quality is guaranteed to be excellent.

This is a high energy, hard rocking performance which sees Medlocke and Co rip through a greatest hits-style set. It's a fabulous album and a great listen from start to finish.

This version also includes an interview. Tracks are as follows:

Rattlesnake Rock 'N' Roller
Wishing Well
Teenage Idol
Train, Train
Easy Livin'
Highway Song
On the Run
Fly Away
Livin' in the City
Interview.

Blackfoot seemed to explode in the UK, had a good few years,then fall out
with each other and split! It was that quick!
They released their live album Highway Song,which does capture their
energy perfectly,albeit with a terrible sound mix.I was hoping that the
king biscuit cd would correct this,and it does to some extent.However,what
maybe lets it down is that the performance is a bit well...I suspect that
the cracks were starting to appear.
For Blackfoot fans,newcomers would be wise to try Highway Song Live first.
