Blackfoot - Flyin' High (1976)

The second album from this US band.

The band was a quartet on this album with a lineup of drums, percussion, bass, guitars, keyboards and vocals.

Two female backing vocalists added their vocals to  a couple of tracks.

This US band is widely labeled as a southern rock band.

The band is also very much associated with Lynyrd Skynyrd these days as Rick Medlocke, the vocalist on this album, now does the same job for Lynyrd Skynyrd.

This is their second album and it did not do that well on the charts.

The reason is the not so good songs here. This album gives is some pretty mediocre hard rocking southern rock with some OK vocals.

The saving grace on this album is the rather ballad'ish final track Mother which elevates this album up to a decent album status. Besides of that, this is not an album those interested in finding out what Blackfoot did should put their money into.
