Finally some 'Blackfoot' on the site. Have been meaning to post a few of their discs on here for a while. This one along with the 'Tomcattin' & 'Marauder'releases are 3 of the best Southern rock releases ever bar non. One classic after another, plus the bonus of a great cover of the Free classic 'Wishing Well'. The highlight has to be 'Highway Song' up there with the 'Freebirds' and 'Boogie No More's' of this world. YEEEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAAAAAH

Easily their strongest album. The perfect place for a new fan to start. Their other albums are mainly hit or miss, but STRIKES delivers track after track of solid Southern hard rock.

From: James Date: November 14, 2003 at 23:13
GREAT album. very hard southern rock. if you don't know what they sound like just think of Skynyrd or Molly Hatchet with a more hard rock sound. Blackfoot is aggressive and in your face and this is the album to start off with. All are top notch songs.

From: Christine Date: January 11, 2004 at 17:53
Now why did I not notice this band on the site?? Blackfoot is by far the heaviest southern rock band, and I think now that Rickey Medlocke is w/Skynyrd they have a much-needed harder edge. I remember my mom blasting "Train, Train" back in '79 and when she gave me all her old vinyl a few years ago, "Strikes" was included. Now I know where I got my taste in music! Check out the King Biscuit live disc, too.

This is my fave album with Blackfoot. Itīs boogie time when you put this one on! Great songs from a great band. I totally recommend this album - Strikes is one mighty fine album!

From: fasteddie Date: July 9, 2004 at 11:38
What can you say? This is the standard release from "those Indian dudes". Many still think this was their 1st album. They were one of my favorite bands and still a top choice when I want to blow off some steam! Medlocke and co. knew how to lay down heavy music - southern style.

From: fasteddie Date: July 9, 2004 at 11:40
Get the "Marauder" disc (not yet listed here) if you can find it. Their best next to Strikes! (Check out Diary of a Working Man). Man, what a song!!

blackfoot es puro rock n roll. mazzetti2001@yahoo.com wishing well pa' todos!!!

From: JSpillman Date: November 9, 2005 at 22:02
Excellent album! This one generated the radio airplay that introduced me to what became one of my favorite artists! Train, Train, Highway Song, Road Fever, Wishing Well and all of the others also are just incredible. The problem with Classic Rock radio is that they have burned out Train, Train and Highway Song and have ignored all the others. They all deserved to be radio hits!

From: 780'sRocked Date: March 21, 2008 at 8:54
Both Train, Train and Highway Song received so much FM radio airtime, (hell, they still do!) back in the late 70's that kind of overplayed these two tracks. But there are some more excellent songs on this disc, too. Road Fever and Left Turn have always been favorites of mine. Excellent cover of Spirit's "I've Got A Line" and 1 of the best cover versions of "Wishing Well" round out this classic, imho! Jakson (Thunderfoot) Spires (RIP) was awesome in concert, as was this tight band! 90/100

From: hair metal again Date: March 30, 2021 at 7:59
excellent release for BLACKFOOT and a classic of that era with songs like "train ,train " and "highway song" but the rest is also great stuff!southern rock with a strong hard edge will get the rock out of you for sure!essential

Man, Blackfoot was so good. I've always wished Skynyrd would play some Blackfoot, considering Ricky Medlocke has been with them so long. That dude is so talented.
