"I've been a Blackfoot fan since 1979 and for some reason this album kept slipping under the radar. I was a vinyl collector long before CD's came out and I don't recall ever seeing this one in the store or I would have bought it just because it was Blackfoot. So now after 23 years I finally bought the CD. What a pleasure it was to finally hear these songs written by the late great Jakson Spires. Not only was he an outstanding drummer he was also the chief songwriter for this amazing rock band. 'Railroad Man' is an instant classic written by Mr.Shorty Medlock, Rickey's grand-dad. Lots of good stuff here. Probably my personal favorite is a song called 'Stars'. It about another great band who 'makes it' and in the eyes of a struggling Blackfoot, seems to forget who their friends are. But Blackfoot 'Stands Alone' (another favorite from No Reservations)and will find their success to be just as rewarding as the subject of the song.
I would highly recommend this CD even at the import price."

"Once in awhile, there is an album that just goes, like people say, totally under the radar."No Reservations" is a damn near PERFECT album, maybe with the exception of one song "Big Wheels" but maybe that's just me. From the start 'Railroad Man" kicks it in gear, and you're like "Hey, This is great stuff.'Then comes "Indian World" which you say to yourself "Okay, this is personal.." THEN you're literally BLOWN AWAY by 'STARS','NOT ANOTHER MAKER','BORN TO ROCK AND ROLL','TAKE A TRAIN' and 'I STAND ALONE'.I see people here selling this cd for a lot of money, and people. I gotta say this..It's WORTH IT'S WEIGHT IN GOLD.I have easily listened to this over a 1000 times in three months.An album like this you've wished Skynyrd would've made.It's that good.I believe that if more people would listen to this album, they probably would ask Rickey Medlocke to form BLACKFOOT again, and PLAY these songs-along with 'HIGHWAY SONG' from "THE STRIKES" album."
