I bought this in vinyl second hand from One up in 1983 its been one of those classic albums that can be played when everything else isn't hitting the spot. I do generally prefer music less produced and rawer which is maybe why these songs sound so much better than the studio versions, they just come alive much more as they are being played in front of an audience.

I bought this in vinyl second hand from One up in 1983 its been one of those classic albums that can be played when everything else isn't hitting the spot. I do generally prefer music less produced and rawer which is maybe why these songs sound so much better than the studio versions, they just come alive much more as they are being played in front of an audience. REO became a factury of power ballads, for good or bad, but like ZZ Top their pre platinum album work is more authentic. They are a very positive band and great to see live, they still tour, with their latter day greatest hits, with the odd oldie thrown in but that is where the heart of REO lies I reckon.
Guitar and keyboard/organ based, melodic and heart-felt songs, for the most part, never quite thought that the Flying Turkey Trot sounded all that great outwith the live experience but that aside all the songs here are great, including a powerful anti-racist song. There must be more than a hint of folk in all this.
For me this album is a rock treasure that will sadly probably never be recognised as the classic it is imho - but that doesn't mean you don't.
