Blackfoot - No Reservations (1975)


The debut album from this US band.

The band the was a quartet with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, guitars, dobro, keyboards and vocals.

Blackfoot was a southern rock band who operated in the shadows of Lynyrd Skynyrd and Allman Brothers Band. The leader, Rick Medlocke is now a member of Lynyrd Skynyrd.

I got a handful of their albums and will review them this summer as I find this an interesting genre and band.

The band debuts with some pretty melodic hard rock on this album. Lynyrd Skynyrd and Allman Brothers is good references here.

The guitars are really good and Rick Medlocke, one of the bigger personalities from the 1970s rock scene, is a good vocalist and guitarist. He is very much carrying this album.

There are a lot of good guitar solos here. 

The end result is a good US hard rock album which will interest everyone into this scene. For the rest of us, this is a decent album.
