REO Speedwagon - 1977 You Get What You Play For (Live)
'You Get What You Play For' primarily consists of material from the first two albums, 'R.E.O.', better known as the 'cow' album, and more noticeably just two tracks from 'Ridin' The Storm Out'.

REO Speedwagon - 1978 You Can Tune A Piano But You Can't Tuna Fish
REO are a classic example of the 70's Midwestern work ethic and deserved every bit of success they received.

REO Speedwagon - 1979 Nine Lives
After the release of their Live album 'You Get What You Play For' in 1977, and their more recent studio album 'You Can Tune A Piano But You Can't Tuna Fish' (phew), the REO boys upped the ante big time for this classic of AOR 'Nine Lives'.

REO Speedwagon - 1980 Hi Infidelity
Released the week before Christmas in 1980, 'Hi Infidelity' would become the biggest selling album of 1981, and propelled this Illinois outfit into the big-time.

REO Speedwagon - 1982 Good Trouble
Because of the recent re-issue on Rock Candy, I'm playing my vinyl copy, and while my review probably won't be to the standard of the pending Rock Candy review in that monthly magazine it will be at least be a shade more critical when it needs to be. Of course this followed 'Hi Infidelity' and they found themselves in the same inevitable task as fellow countrymen Journey would have 6 months later in trying to match their most celebrated success with a follow up. Journey was doing the same with 'Frontiers', so likewise 'Good Trouble' was going to be on a hiding to nothing.

REO Speedwagon - 1984 Wheels Are Turnin'
'Wheels Are Turnin' returned REO to the very top echelons, not surprising given it's consistent quality AOR and never losing touch with their signature sound.

REO Speedwagon - 1990 The Earth, A Small Man, His Dog And A Chicken
It's a pretty weird album title huh? Not the easiest to recite. A new decade, a new lineup, possibly a new sound? Not quite with the latter, but I did enjoy this CD in comparison to the last few 80's albums from this lot.. so that says something.

REO Speedwagon - 1996 Building The Bridge
Though the album saw a reissue in 2003 by Universal, 'Building The Bridge' would remain REO's most low-key album among their back-catalog.

REO Speedwagon - 2007 Find Your Own Way Home
REO have followed a path that timeless Aussie rockers LRB have recently taken. Going it alone as a band without a label (thats not a bad thing.. believe me!), and plying a musical road that is earthy, midwest, and southern all in the same breath. The production is smooth, the melodies are flowing, and the tunes are all worthy of playing time in your music player of choice!
