5.0 out of 5 stars 8-Tracks, Cheap beer and REO! July 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD
When I was in high school (class of 80!) my favorite classes were auto shop and electronics. One day in 1978 I worked on a guy's Jeep and took a peek inside his 8-track tape box. The guy had about 6 REO tapes and I thought "who are these guys?". I was a big Styx, Kansas, Kiss and Van Halen fan but never heard of them before. A few months later I helped a friend install a new Pioneer Supertuner 8-Track deck with Jensen tri-axel speakers, and we tested it out using his new tape - you guess it - their classic "Tuna" album! It sounded so great that I bought my own copy that night. It's been my favorite REO album ever since.

REO has always been a classic bar band "made good" at heart. At the time they were relentlessly touring across the mid-southwest while building up a following of die-hard fans. REO finally went platinum with thier 1977 Live album (sadly chopped up on CD - the Vinyl LP is still the definitive version), which set the stage for "Tuna", and 2 years later leading to a nationwide breakthrough with "Hi Infidelity".

The great things about this album - excellent songwriting from Cronin and Richrath, a wide variety of styles with tight musicianship, going from all-out rockers, sweet ballads, and midtempo pop-rock. After being unfocused for so many years, REO finally got it's act together on one album to become a great Album Rock band. REO was never ment to be a "Critic's Darling" - they were a band for teenagers and working class young adults who wanted to party and Rock!

Compared to the reverbed-to-death "Hi Infidelity" and "Good Trouble" LP's - the production of "Tuna" still sounds clean and well recorded. The new CD is a huge improvement in sound quality over the old CD that was released in the 80's.

4.0 out of 5 stars I can name that tuna in 5 notes... January 28, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Made in CAN in 2000, Serial# EK-61613, Playing Time: 34 min.
Originally released back in 1978, this album (#8) shows a trend towards rockier melodies than its predecessor. Now remastered and re-issued at the same time as "Hi Infidelity", this album shows a band performing much more straight-ahead rock than the latter, but not quite as effective as on their ninth album, "Nine Lives".
This CD contains a few classics, like "Roll With Changes", "Time For Me To Fly" and "Say You Love Me Or Say Goodnight".
Up here in the Great White North, Sony has applied a sticker that reads "Digitally Remastered! Bonus Tracks!" Unfortunately, there are no bonus tracks.
If you're into the rockier side of the band and enjoy tracks like "Don't Let Him Go" from the "Hi Infidelity" album, "You Can Tune A Piano..." and "Nine Lives" (not to be confused with Aerosmith's) belong in your CD collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their Best Studio Album! February 22, 2002
Format:Audio CD
REO Speedwagon.... To me, their studio albums were never as good as the live performance. However, when this album came out they finally figured out how to capture the intensity. This is truly a great recording.
Every REO fan should have this in the collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just pop -- but very good pop. January 14, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Ok, so this was just a slick pop album and probably the hard-rock and art-rock snobs hated it. Musically, there's nothing original here, and lyrically there's probably nothing original either (how many more song about getting over disappearing love does the world need?). But damnit, slick pop or not, this is good stuff! When I'm in a REALLY bad mood, I put on the headphones and play this at maximum volume. This is one of the most listened-to albums in my collection (I must be in a bad mood pretty often). It rocks. Gary Richrath's guitar work is intense, showing that you can have fiery playing in pop music. And when Neal Doughty's keyboards poke their way up past the guitars, they add a rollicking bouncy feel that nonetheless remains consistent with the intense sound of the guitars. (Think of Jerry Lee Lewis and how much power he could pull out of a piano.)
This is also a great album because there's no "filler" in it. Every song is good.
Do yourself a favor. If you're not already familiar with this album but you've brushed off the band because of their later mushy stuff, then ignore the critics and don't worry about their other albums -- just give this a listen a few times.
For comparison, this is very different from the mushy, awful album High Infidelity. It has a lot in common with their live album "You Get What You Play For", which I also highly recommend if you like this "hard pop" style.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album March 18, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Bought this album on LP from a second-hand record store on a whim. The only REO I knew beforehand was 'Roll With The Changes', 'Time For Me To Fly', and 'Ridin The Storm Out', and this album turned me into a huge REO fan. Other than the original Boston LP, there has been no other album on which I have loved every song as much as I have loved the songs on You Can Tune A Piano But You Can't Tuna Fish.

5.0 out of 5 stars great keyboards February 5, 2003
Format:Audio CD
this is one of my all time favorite albums. I've been a professional keyboard/piano player in rock bands for over 20 years. Let's face it, there just aren't as many "keyboard gods" out there as there are guitar players. Anyway, in 1979 this album (and specifically Neil Doughty's piano playing) inspired me, a 13 year old kid, to play piano in a rock band and I've been doing it ever since. I love this album!
