Bloody Tourist is the second post Godley & Creme 10cc album. This album demonstrated that Deceptive Bends wasn't a fluke and that Stewart and Gouldman could capably continue without the duo. This loose concept album uses the tourist theme of the title for a wide variety of great songs (including Reds in my Bed and Dreadlock Holiday).In addition to the terrific Dreadlock Holiday, there is the Beatlesque Chains of Love. Stewart's excellent slide playing (which reminds me a bit of George Harrison--albeit considerably more skillful)along with his strong lead vocal are highlights of this great track. There are a couple of clunkers as well--this album probably could have been pared down to 8 strong tracks line The Original Soundtrack with the remainder as b sides.
New member Rick Fenn co-writes one of the better tracks and, with later albums, would show as much skill as a songwriter as both Stewart & Gouldman. This is the last 10cc album that holds up well to the classic first four. I find You And I to be a nice song but filler. It hasn't aged as well as the single or the stronger album tracks. The sythesizer dates the song (the poor sounding remastering on this track doesn't help either). While the band would produce albums that were always memorable, the quality got a bit spotty after this album. I should mention that the out of print 10 out of 10 (which you can find occasionally at amazon auctions) and Window to the Jungle are both fairly solid albums. The former album is the better of the two and almost as good as this and Deceptive Bends.
As to the issue of the sound quality. It varies considerably from track to track. Roger Wake (who supervised the fine mastering job on both Original Soundtrack and How Dare You!) fails to do a good mastering job here.

First, allow me to say that I have loved this album since it first came out on vinyl back in 1978 - it's full of the inventive and humorous music that 10cc has been known for.
However, when Mercury-UK remastered "Bloody Tourists" for reissue in 1997 (release #534 973-2), they botched it dramatically. There are obvious tape speed fluctuations all over the place, most dramatically on "Last Night," "Old Mister Time," "From Rochdale To Ocho Rios," and "Everything You Wanted To Know About!!!" Strangely the newly appended bonus track "Nothing Can Move Me" is without flaws - perhaps the source tape used for the main album was bad, or the machine it was run on was improperly calibrated. However, Mercury/Polygram should not have allowed this product to be distributed in the poor condition that it is in. Avoid this version at all costs, and hope that perhaps the Japanese release is a different master.

10cc's "Bloody Tourists" was originally released in September of 1978--this was the follow up to 1977's "Deceptive Bends", and it was the second 10cc record without Godley & Creme who left the group in 1976 and continued to work together as duo.

Certainly Godley & Creme's departure had a big impact on 10cc--they contributed largely to the songwriting and overall sound of the group. However, the other 2 original 10cc members, Eric Stewart & Graham Gouldman, were brilliant musical minds in their own right, and they're basically running the show on here. The result is this brilliant album.

I realize that "Bloody Tourists" is typically considered a disappointment compared to "Deceptive Bends", but it appears to me to be very much the other way around. On "Deceptive Bends", it sounds like Stewart & Gouldman weren't quite prepared to step up and fill the void left by Godley & Creme, but were forcing themselves to do it anyway despite being short on ideas. With "Bloody Tourists", 10cc bounced back in a big way, sounding far more assured and invigorated, and 10cc's work would remain consistently strong/ brilliant until their initial breakup in 1983/ 1984, making "Bloody Tourists" something of a comeback from my perspective.

Rick Fenn, Stuart Tosh, Duncan Mackay, & Paul Burgess were additional band members at this point, but apart from "Dreadlock Holiday" (as well as its non-LP b-side "Nothing Can Move Me", included here as a bonus track) which is credited as having been produced by the whole group, the entire album was produced by Stewart & Gouldman, and between the two of them, they were also responsible for all of the songwriting apart from just a few co-writes from other members.

I am in the distinct minority among 10cc devotees-- and this is just my personal taste-- but I've always preferred Deceptive Bends, and particularly Bloody Tourists, as my favorite 10cc albums. Kevin Godley and Lol Creme with Eric Stewart and Graham Gouldman put out some awesome tracks on the earlier albums, among the best 10cc ever did, no doubt, but there were also tracks on those albums I just personally never got into. After The Split (Kevin and Lol left the band), on Deceptive Bends and Bloody Tourists, Eric and Graham demonstrated continued growth as musicians and consistently very high-quality writing, wit, hooks, energy and performance level that I really enjoy. If you don't agree, and most or at least many longtime 10cc fans don't, I understand, but I believe differences here come down to personal taste. I rate every track on this CD (including the bonus Nothing Can Move Me which was a B-side to the Dreadlock Holiday single) very highly and worth a trip out to my iPod.

At times, Bloody Tourists reminds me of Paul McCartney. Sir Paulie should wish he were making music this good in 1978. And I like McCartney and the Beatles very much. I like this better.

I can't endorse the Mercury digital remastering of this CD, though. Some of the treble or high end got lost in the transfer, a relatively easy problem to address with tone controls in playback or with audio software. The dynamic range on most CD tracks was compressed too much compared to the vinyl. But most annoying of all, this CD was remastered with a slight slowing of timing and pitch. Each track but the Dreadlock Holiday single sides runs slower on the CD than on vinyl, at a consistent slow speed within each track, but by varying amounts of slowness from one track to another.
