Had heard this album years ago,and Blackfoot were first i ever saw live.So am a bit biased,but exactley what i remembered.Good ole southern rock but heavier than most like groups of the time.This is good but second album "Flyin' High" even better.Well worth a listen for fans of their later albums.

Blackfoot were a Southern Rock band from Jacksonville Florida formed by Greg T. Walker and Rick Medlocke (of Lynyrd Skynyrd) around 1970, named after several of the band member's Native American ancestry.

The band broke through big from around 1979-1981 with a trio of superb records that mixed Southern Rock attitude and stylings with a more heavy metal approach and production style. Before that however, the band released two albums that were more traditional, Flyin' High and their debut album No Reservations.

1975's No Reservations shows the potential that the band had even at this early stage in their career. Despite its basic production values and slightly derivative songwriting, there is still a lot of interesting material to be found.

In terms of positives, the album has variety on its side. Mixing some great rock moments like the album highlights `Born To Rock N Roll' and `Take A Train' with quieter moments like the `Simple Man' referencing ballad `Stars' and the excellent Bluegrass album closer `Railroad Man.'

The only problem with the album is that the level of energy is comparatively restrained for the majority of each song's duration, which can make the songs seem a lot less dynamic and interesting than they really are.

Every song does kick right into life when the guitar solos break out however, and suddenly all band members start playing the absolute hell out of their instruments. Had they delivered more of the album with this level of passion and intensity it would be a truly powerful and memorable record.

As it stands it is a nice addition to your Blackfoot collection, although not really something I would recommend to non-fans or first time buyers in the same way that I would recommend any of the four albums which followed. That being said; the more you listen to it, the more it grows on you and while it isn't just as world beating as some of their finest work, it is still way above average.

Great songs but the sound quality is so bad......I have been a massive blackfoot fan since hearing the maurader album many many years ago, and have gone on to buy everything they have done. This first album released in 1975 was the only one I have never managed to get hold of, so seeing it available on Amazon I jumped at the chance to own it. The CD arrived on time and in great condition from the seller, but on playing it, the first thing that struck me was how God Damn awful the sound quality is. Right from the start there are dropouts in sound and bad distortion, completely ruining what would be great songs. This being the remastered version with the 2 extra tracks (which sound even worse, and why they were put on in that condition I have no clue) I expected it to be at least listenable. It's such a shame because if the quality of the sound had been better this would have been a 4 star album at least. My advice would be avoid the remaster at all costs and try and find the vinyl in decent condition, because in this state it just isn't worth having.

4.0 out of 5 stars decent debut 14 Dec. 2013
By Edward J. mccarthy Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
this was a decent debut by blackfoot in 1975 but i thought flyin high in 1976 was where things really began for blackfoot, of coarse i dont think any blackfoot fan would disagree when i say blackfoots best years where from 1979 when strikes came out until 1983, 1979 to 1983 where the prime years for blackfoot when there best records came out, this album was like a beginners guide to blackfoot where im not even so sure rickie was sure what direction to take the band in, this was a good bluesy record for its time and the remastering on this cd is very good and the inlay gives a lot of great details, for me im not sure wich my favorite blackfoot record is it is either strikes or tomcattin, also the live album highway song from 1982 is a must own, i hope rickie puts this great band back together at some point, it was really great to hear this album again but its not my favorite sorry.............
5.0 out of 5 stars Blackfoot's First of a string of great albums...in CD format! 12 Nov. 2015

After reading all the reviews, there's really not much more to add except that Blackfoot blazed their own path in Southern rock history that was never duplicated and never will be. Being a die-hard Southern rocker, I was very pleased to find Blackfoot's first album in CD format, sound quality is as good or better than the original album's. If you've never heard Blackfoot's music except for their radio hits, you're in for a real treat in listening to this album ...Thanks Ricky

The first album by BF. Wore the grooves out on this from the time I got it. Not every song a hit, but very solid. New these guys were on to something when No Rez came out. Flyin' High was a decent sophomore offering, but when strikes came out they were on top.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Diamond in the Rough... 18 April 2008
By J. Woods - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I've been a Blackfoot fan since 1979 and for some reason this album kept slipping under the radar. I was a vinyl collector long before CD's came out and I don't recall ever seeing this one in the store or I would have bought it just because it was Blackfoot. So now after 23 years I finally bought the CD. What a pleasure it was to finally hear these songs written by the late great Jakson Spires. Not only was he an outstanding drummer he was also the chief songwriter for this amazing rock band. 'Railroad Man' is an instant classic written by Mr.Shorty Medlock, Rickey's grand-dad. Lots of good stuff here. Probably my personal favorite is a song called 'Stars'. It about another great band who 'makes it' and in the eyes of a struggling Blackfoot, seems to forget who their friends are. But Blackfoot 'Stands Alone' (another favorite from No Reservations)and will find their success to be just as rewarding as the subject of the song.

I would highly recommend this CD even at the import price.
