CD Reviews

Rock Solid Arena Rock
John Carroll | Alpharetta, GA USA | 02/02/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"After non stop touring with everybody and their grandmother for the last 8 years(including The Who, Journey, and The Scorpions), this band had reached a rather disappointing place in 1983. Anybody who saw them live knew that they were one hell of a hard rock outfit. But, with the advent of new wave and techno bands in the early 80's, the no frills sound of Blackfoot was so 1978 and outta here. SIOGO(yeh, we all know what it stands for) was one hell of an arena rock platter with tight hard rock melodic songs fashioned by honest bad ass southern rockers. Interesting though how this album doesn't sound southern at all(save the rave up Drivin Fool). There's a definite british influence on songs like Send Me An Angel, Crossfire, Run For Cover, etc. Me thinks Mr. Medlocke had listened to some Thin Lizzy and UFO. Excellent cover of Nazareth's Heart's Grown Cold with their own stamp on it. The beginning of Sail Away sounds like a long lost Eddie Van Halen riff. Drivin' Fool is redneck headbangin bliss. Every song is anchored by the talented Jakson Spires- one of the best rock drummers ever. Pick it up."
Blackfoot's strongest release!

"Rick Medlocke was actually playing drums in Lynyrd Skynyrd way back in the early 1970's (and now he has rejoined the band on guitar - the circle is closed). Anyway, Medlocke (vocals, guitar) formed his own band, called it Blackfoot and went for a heavier southern rock approach than he's old companions in Lynyrd Skynyrd. The first release came in 1975 and was titled "No reservations". After another four albums, Blackfoot changed their musical direction a bit and went for a more radio friendly sound on 1983's "Siogo".In my opinion, "Siogo" is Blackfoot's strongest album ever, with a blend of the typical southern approach and melodic rock full of hooks! It seems like Medlocke and his boys really put a lot of effort in the song writing, shown immediately in the opening up tempo rocker "Send me an angel" with its strong hit potential. This release is packed with strong and attractive tunes like the catchy "Teenage idol", the hard "White man's land", and the speedy "Drivin' fool". Blackfoot are even doing a Nazareth cover ("Hearts grown cold"), and it's appealing that they dared to put a very personal touch by changing the song from a ballad into a rocker - nice work!I would claim that there's no weak spot anywhere on this very solid album. On the follow up "Vertical smiles", Blackfoot stayed in the land of melodic radio friendly rock but they were unable to recreate the magic shown on "Siogo"."
Siogo's History

"Charlie Hargrett (Blackfoot Guitarist from (1969-1984) is, in my humble opinion, a true innovator in Southern Rock sound evolution. He has a web site: www.siogo.com that details many of the behind the scenes of the making of the SIOGO album/CD. You might be interested in finding out what the Title stands for. All and all Charlie is a great guy and so is Rickey Medlocke, who my daddy painted houses with in Jacksonville when we were growing up. Now I live over here near Charlie and think about it being a real small world. I played guitar with him once and realized I was outclassed immedately. He plays some local clubs and peals the paint right off the walls, and sends the leseer players packing for the woodsheds, me included. Blackfoot brought an edge to Southern Rock that gave it a voice that made the world take notice to the new guys on the block. Hell they shattered the block and stood on top of the broken pieces and belted out, loud and proud. You can't go wrong with a Blackfoot song. Take it from someone who has met em and growed up around them. They are the real deal."
