First saw REO when Lutrell was the lead singer shortly after REO I came out. Always liked his rock roots and his power as a vocalist definitely comes through - especially on my personal favorite "Dead at Last". For anyone who appreciates this cornerstone Midwest rock group and wants to know more about the sound that eventually got diluted into diced up folk ballads - buy it. If you want to feel the energy that was rock in the early 70s - buy it.
1. Gypsy Woman's Passion-album opens up like gangbusters with this strong blues inflected boogie. alan's drums are way up in the mix on this and terry luttrell's vocals are gritty as ever.
2. 157 Riverside Avenue-ditto here. this is an awesome track
3. Anti-Establishment Man-love this track. it's definitely a cool period piece, referencing how unneccessary vietnam was and how we need help with other stuff here in the u.s.
4. Lay Me Down- pretty good song
5. Sophisticated Lady- cool little duke ellington cover
6. Five Men Were Killed Today-reo sounds a lot like crosby stills and nash on this track
7. Prison Women -interesting track "That's the object of the story.Don't mess with the prison women"lol
8. Dead at Last -this is an extended jam showcasing neil doughty's keyboard dexterity
1. Let Me Ride
2. How the Story Goes
3. Little Queenie
4. Being Kind (Can Hurt Someone Sometimes) -foreshadows the kevin cronin balladry that would come later except this rocks out a lot more and i wouldn't categorize this with the aor cheese that would come later.
5. Music Man -decent cronin penned track
6. Like You Do
7. Flash Tan Queen
8. Golden Country
** I didn't comment on a few tracks on the second disc, however, i will update when i have given the second disc a couple more spins. but,tentatively speaking, the second disc is pretty good too, so i will stand behind my four star rating....
REO's first album is one of those classic first albums of a raw band with truckloads of talent finally being let loose in the studio. The best songs are when the band locks into that early 70's "boogie" groove and doesn't let up, like on "Sophisticated Woman" and the classic "157 Riverside Avenue".
Gary Richrath rips off some uninhibited killer solos all over here, it sounds like he's really savoring the moment of trying to make a mark in the Rock 'N' Roll world. And I dont think Neal Doughty's piano was recorded this well again, it always sounded tinny or pushed back in the mix on later albums. Terry Luttell's voice reminds me a lot of Tom Johnson of the Doobie Brothers, interestedly this LP was released before the Doobies first LP. It's just a shame Epic didn't do much to promote this LP or radio stations just weren't paying attention.
Things were different on R.E.O./T.W.O. when Kevin Cronin joined the band with his folk-rock and pop influences. The second album doesn't quite have the raw energy and excitement of the first due to the (slightly) slicker production. But the songs, better arrangements and the band's improved musicianship make up for it. Though Kevin's vocals are raw in places, his songs show he's the perfect foil for Gary's songwriting and guitar playing, something that would make REO hit platinum by the late 70's and something sorrily missing from the albums with Mike Murphy.
Again there's many songs here (the legendary "Golden Country") that would have sounded great on Album Rock stations at the time but nobody except album rock stations in the midwest, southwest and parts of the south gave this platter a serious spin. (the first REO song I heard was "Golden Country" on KMOD in Tulsa OK in 1975). And it's a shame Kevin fell out of the band a year later, I think they could have easily become superstars earlier in their career had he been a team player and stuck around.
This is a great 2-Fer, many thanks to BGO for a terrific job on the mastering and liner notes. PS: Can you do a full reissue of the "Live: You Get What You Play For" album?
