The first R.E.O. album I heard. They had 6 albums out already, but I wasn't listening to radio and there was limited exposure to music...I only heard it because one of my sisters bought the album...and I loved it. In fact, I still prefer the live versions of the songs collected here to the studio versions. R.E.O. Speedwagon - Live/You Get What You Play For
Live version of Golden Country from You Get What You Play For album. Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar: Kevin Cronin Lead Guitar: Gary Richrath Drums: Alan Gratzer ...

Oh, man, for the days when you could hear this on FM rock instead of that smarmy REO song and nothing else. (For that matter, for the days when REO made great songs like this instead of that smarmy stuff!!!) BTW, saw your reply to someone about your medical issue, I'm praying for you.

Yeah, it's a fairly serious thing, if it wasn't for my personal code of ethics I would already be in the hospital. Thanks...right now I can use any help I can get.

Most 70s groups were always better live than studio. Like Foghat.

Yeah, but sometimes the live recordings made a great performance sound horrible...but being a sound man of all persuasions, I get really picky of how stuff is mixed and such...

I remember being addicted to R.E.O. Now I barely listen to them anymore.

I probably get this one out more than any of the others...I have 8 of their releases, but they don't get the heavy play they did back in the day

I hate limited exposure to music, damn Nazis that claim they are not Nazis. My comments will be worse the more I hear how the world wants a dictator. love your post but always remember trying to keep it free like a bird.
