A bit controversial I guess but I rate this album higher than anything produced by LS, MH et al. I first bought this on vinyl some 21 years ago and am glad to say it is as good and timeless as ever. Every track is good but real highlights are the soulfull Left Turn on a Red Light, the rocky and more commercial Baby Blue, the awesome cover of Free`s Wishing Well and the sublime Highway Song, which surpasses Freebird by some way. If like me this type of music turned you on in your formative years buy this and watch your hair grow as you listen to it.

Since growing up in a lively little town in Florida ,known for its superior southern rock bands,Blacfoot shares the spotlight with numerous bands from this city. But Blackfoot is all by themselves with the release of Strikes.Left turn on a red light is one of those that cannot be compared , shared or even matched by any other group . Let it be known that this band with all the comparisons to others stands alone . Greg drives himself ,soul and heart into each lyric as well as the others . I would rate this album as one of the top five ALL time .I know what Iam talking about.Hope this band continues to create fine music as they have shown that they can do

I bought the vinyl only in 1981 but apart from that I can't add much to what's been written already. At the time I was just looking for something a little different and for me as well, the cover did the selling. But boy, it wasn't even half as good as the article inside. Great album from a great band.

This has to be one of those few albums I purchase, it comes and then I simply can't stop listening to it! Obviously it has three quite famous and excellent tracks on (Highway Song, Train Train & the Free cover Wishing Well), but the album has a real southern rock feel to it and that's just why I bought the album. Great vocals however my only annoyance was most songs seem to start with "Wheyyyyyl...". Great Album!

But the first thing that strikes you is that it is a damn good HARD ROCK album.
If Free had come from Florida you could have got Blackfoot. That's about it. Good driving music. Not a patch on Marauder though, that was and indeed still is CLASS.

BUY! - With reservations if you want SUVVERN.

Strikes was the third studio album by the Southern Rock band Blackfoot, it was released on the Atco label in 1979 and was something of a breakthrough release for the band.

Blackfoot were named after the Native American Blackfoot Confederacy due to several of the band member's Native American heritage. The band was based in Florida and featured Lynyrd Skynyrd's Rick Medlocke on Lead Vocals and Guitar.

Strikes was the first of an unbeatable three-album streak of classic gems, followed in 1980 by Tomcattin' and then 1981's Marauder. The three albums, along with the incendiary live album Highway Song Live are all considered by fans to be utterly essential. If you are interested in the band for any reason, any of these three records, including Strikes, should really please you.

While Marauder is a bit more commercial and Tomcattin' is a bit heavier, Strikes is the album that most truly follows the specific Southern Rock formula laid down by Lynyrd Skynyrd and followed by the likes of Molly Hatchet and Outlaws. If you enjoy any of those bands then Strikes is definitely worth checking out. That being said however, the album isn't exactly dripping in Southern Rock conventions; it is more of a solid Hard Rock album with a Southern tinge.

One thing that separates Strikes from the rest of the band's catalogue is that it contains three cover songs by Spirit, Blues Image and Free respectively.

Strikes also distinguishes itself by featuring the anthemic `Train, Train' and `Highway Song' which are two of the bands most popular and recognizable tracks, and the avenue through which many fans discover Blackfoot.

Overall; if you like the band it would really be advisable to get a copy of Strikes, Tomcattin' and Marauder at a minimum. The other two records have the heaviness and heavy metal charm and they are perfectly complimented by Strikes, which has the hits and the variety.
