Named after a flatbed truck, REO Speedwagon muscled their way to ever increasing popularity during the 1970s, releasing album after album until the tide of their persistence eventually turned into a gigantic tsunami wave. The 1980 album 'Hi-Fidelity' elevated the band to superstar status, with new fans convinced that they were an overnight success. Nothing however could have been further from the truth. The amusingly titled 'You Can Tune A Piano, But You Can't Tune A Fish', originally released in 1978, was the band's seventh studio album and was their first to boast a slightly more polished sound. The songs too were tighter and more precise, leaving little room for the bar room extemporisation that had been their mainstay previously. In fact, the album contained a number of tracks that would later go on to define REO's clean cut but aggressive style such as 'Roll With The Changes', 'Time For Me To Fly' and 'Say You Love Me Or Say Goodnight'.
Part of this new found blossoming of creativity was due to the innate combustibility of the relationship between vocalist Kevin Cronin and guitarist Gary Richrath, two men who would, at this time, define the band's sound. New bassist Bruce Hall, Cronin's unique vocal style and Richrath's raunchy guitar work was starting to make a unique combination. Truly one of their finest albums.
