Customer Reviews

This is a great album for all REO fans.
Gitters
Had the sound quality been that of say Hotel California, it would have gotten much more airplay.
Bach the Rock
REO's least selling album and probably one of their best.

In 1976 Mike Murphy was booted out, and Kevin Cronin rejoined Reo Speedwagon. R.E.O. or C.O.W. as some like to call it, is one of Reo's most solid early efforts. The tape opens with one of Reo's best rockers Keep Pushin'and it pretty much keeps rockin through until the end. Buy the time this album had came out the members of Reo where becoming very good songwriters. This is a great album for all REO fans.

Released in 1976, and with the return of Kevin, you can hear the brilliance that was to follow. Every song is solid. It is a shame that the sound quality is so poor, and as others have said, even flatter then the vinyl version (I wish mine was in better condition). Had the sound quality been that of say Hotel California, it would have gotten much more airplay. For some reason Gary's instrumental Flying Turkey Trot seems to have better sound then the rest. So who stepped into the engineering room when that was done? So then it looses a star just because of the sound quality.

The production is terrible and the songs sound flat. My favorite is "Keep Pushin'" and it just doesn't sound the way I was used to hearing it-so if you have your old vinyl-or the Decade of Rock N Roll LP-you're better off sticking to those versions.
Trust me, the songs-not including the sappy "Any Kind of Love" and "(Only A) Summer Love"-are great, but the sound is awful, at least, I was expecting it to sound better than it did.

As on REO fan for something like 25 years, I would rate this album with their best. "Hi InFidelity" broke them to the masses, but this one marked Kevin Cronin's return to the fold and (in my mind) established them as one of the best west coast influenced jam bands of the 70's. Mighty big words, but listen to "Lightning" and "Our Time is Gonna Come". The only thing (in my mind) that kept them from going on and on was the restrictive time constraints of the LP format. Gary Richrath really goes to town on all of those major scale solos at the end of each of these songs, and the deceptively simple song structures ("Breakaway" and "Keep Pushin'") ring as true as anything the Eagles were doing. I just picked up the live Big Head Todd and the Monsters cd without ever hearing anything other than their radio hits and was struck by the similarity of much of their material to this mid-period REO stuff. The influences are definately there: the big guitar solos, the (seemingly) simple song structures, the emotional punch of the melody.... REO Speedwagon obviously did influence many bands playing today and "REO" is probably the best example of what made that band so great and, uh, meaningful.

Kevin markes his return to the group,after a three album gap in singing on their recordings, his first one out of the group, his vocals were recorded over, but the songs he wrote were still included. REO is not a great cd. It has some good songs, but the production on this outing is horrible, killing most of the songs. Keep Pushin, and (I Believe) Our Time is Gonna Come, are to very good songs. Any Kind of Love, and Summer Love deserve mention, showing that they are heading toward the "big ballad" days to come. Rest of this disk is weak, and does not show the promise of the Speedwagon ahead.

All songs on this album are very good, but the album is mediocrely produced. Hearing that this album was their poorest seller doesn't surprise me, based on my own experience with REO at the time. I had bought REO Two which was a great album. I bought the next 3 albums which got progressively worse, to almost bad. Kronin and the band parted ways and Mike Murphy couldn't sing and the songs were not very good. So when this album came out, even seeing that Kevin was back, I did not buy it. I only first heard these songs when 4 of them were included on the "You Get What You Play For" live album. I then bought this album and thought the other songs were very good too. Some songs have a little bit of county rock sound to them such as "Any Kind Of Love", "Summer Love", "Breakaway" and "Tonight". On this album REO introduced a new ingredient that they needed to make future big hits: nice harmony vocals. There were none on REO Two and now they were here in full force. Richrath sings lead on "Only a Summer Love" which is a romantic song for any one who had ever had a summer love. What I really liked about REO versus some harder rock bands of the time, was what their songs were about: romance and "change, striving for success or happiness". This is what interested me as 20 year old, a lot more than getting drugged out and dying. The love songs include: Any Kind Of Love, Summer Love, Lightning. Songs about striving to make it include "Keep Pushing", "Our Time is Gonna Come", Breakaway. My personal favorite on the album is the mysterious "Lightning" a perfect collaboration between Kronin and Richrath.

Yes......1976. So many years back, but I remember them quite well. This was a popular album when it was released & I don't really know why it isn't out there for sale like their other ones are. We all had this album back then. Of couse REO went on to make many more great hits as the years went by, but this recording is the one that broke the ice & showed their true talents. In a way, it has a country twinge to a couple of songs even tho it is a rock album, but pretty much all the tunes are very ear worthy. Compared to today, those were good days back in 1976. It was the Bi-Centennial year and there were many great recordings made by a lot of bands back in those days & this is truly one of them in 1976 for sure. Very well worth listening to for sure.
