A Trip Down 157 Riverside Avenue – Live REO Speedwagon on Today’s Vault
REO Speedwagon released their double live album ‘You Get What You Play For’ in 1977, shortly before they got really really big. I think it was their first serious step toward the superstar period they finally achieved in the early 80’s. It seemed like everyone had it in their collections, and, as I recall, every other phone call to the radio station was a request for something on it. ‘Riding The Storm Out’ or ‘Golden Country’ mostly, but a distant third was the bands party number, ‘157 Riverside Avenue.’ All these years later and people are still asking for it! Ye shall receive today. Out of town? Listen live on-line.
