5.0 out of 5 stars Great Geatest hits! 16 Jun. 2014
By C. Abrams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Awesome album of all of REO's pre Hi Infidelity hits. Even the alternative live versions of classics 157 and Ridin the Storm out are wonderful additions. Really interesting liner notes as well. A must have for anyone that loves REO Speedwagon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best 13 July 2000
By Terry P - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Long before being credited with inventing the so-called "Power Ballad" REO was rocking with songs like "Riding the Storm Out" and "Keep Pushing". This collection captures the formative years of the band, and thus gives the listener a variety of sounds and styles. If you want can't-sit-still Rock and Roll this album is just what the doctor ordered.

4.0 out of 5 stars REO'S 70'S BEST 8 Mar. 2002
By Eric J. Weik - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Not many groups can lay claim to the success that REO has had, what group can go thru 3 lead singer changes, and end back up with their second singer, and be stronger about it. Not many. A DECADE OF ROCK AND ROLL 70-80, is a strong testament to REO. It contains a least one song from every cd of this time frame. Plus it contains some hidden gems.
Luckly the cd has only one song from each cd that Kevin is not doing lead vocals on, which was a smart move. The songs picked from thses cds, are okay, and thses songs are only on disk one. Disk two is pure REO.
Disk one's songs has a hidden surprise, with the orginal vocals by Kevin on So of a Poor Man, which were rerecorded for the release of RIDIN THE STORM OUT,(the third cd), right after Kevin left the group. So hearing how this song was really suppose to sound, is nice, and makes you wonder just how good could that third cd had been. Also the songs from REO, the cd which Kevin came back to the group, have been re-produced. Making them sound a lot better. The songs from REO, were good, but orginally the production killed the cd.
Disk two is were it really kicks ... It start off live, with songs from the live cd, You get.... then adds two new live versions of Ridin' the Storm Out, and 157 Riverside Ave. Both of which ROCK. These two, are two of the best live recordings ever done by the group. The cd ends with classic REO songs from the TUNA cd and NINE LIVES, which includes Roll With the Changes, Time For Me to Fly, and Back on the Road Again.
You can't go wrong with this cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars REO ROCKED THE 70'S 25 Oct. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Being from Southern Indiana I listened and saw probably the best party band ever, REO Speedwagon. Myself and all my high school friends in the 70's will never forget the great times we had going to numerous REO concerts in Evansville, Indiana at the Old Coliseum and Roberts Stadium. After listening to these samples on this site I had to get in my closet and bring out my album of the same and rocked well into the night. What memories I have of Kevin singing and Gary playing guitar.
If you don't have this album you don't have a complete collecion of the best bands of the 70's.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Recap Of REO's Best Years 6 Oct. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a great recap of REO Speedwagon's best musical period. You get "Son Of A Poor Man" with Kevin on vocals, which is how it should have been all along. You also have the excellent live version of "Ridin' The Storm Out", which is even better than the excellent studio version. The opening "Sophisticated Lady" is terrible, but "Lost In A Dream isn't half bad at all. There are are a few other not-so-great songs, but most of this set is high-energy rock, much better than the pap that later became REO's stock-in-trade. Get this one if you've never heard just how great REO Speedwagon were in their early years.
