    Had that on vinyl years ago. Actually forgot about them until now. Might have to go to my favorite ebay music seller, and see if they have a copy.

    My first gig ever was Blackfoot in april 1982. It was my baptism. I was 12 yrs old and shell shocked for weeks afterwards. Got to meet the band three years later minus Charlie when they returned to play in Ireland, Bobby Barth did a great job filling Charlie`s big boots and was a really nice guy to meet. Saw them again at Knebworth two days later. All thanks to my older brother. Incredible memories.

    Edit: This is from a couple of nights later on the same tour

    Been a fan since 1980 and the Tomcattin album. I lived in Atlanta during the early 80's and the Southern Rock Genre was huge there - Blackfoot, Lynyrd Skynyrd, 38 Special, Atlanta Rhythm Section, The Jonny Van Zant Band, Molly Hatchet were always playing on the radio.

    When I was in high school, this was my favorite album and this was my favorite song. Their cover rocked. The build up of the harp to the guitar was perfect. Loved it. Still do.

    Blackfoot kicked ass! Saw them a few times in the 80's.. I 'specially remember seeing them at the Reading festival in' 82, and the Monsters of Rock, Castle Donnington, in '81, when it rained practically all day.
    Rick Medlocke is a real larger than life rock an' roller.

    He’s actually a very intelligent man. You could talk with him for hours. Jackson Spires, the drummer was too. I believe he has passed away. Definitely was a Cool guy!
