Not a fan at all of REO Tricycle but- one thing I do admire is how they stuck with it- it wasn’t until their 9th album in 1980- a decade into their recording career that they really hit it big. This was their second and final #1- “Keep On Loving You’ was the first back in 1980.

  1. I knew some people who really liked them before that album…I guess I can’t blame them for going commercial after touring all through the seventies.

  2. My girlfriend in high school was really into them so I got exposed to them – more the early 80s stuff. I actually liked some of their earlier stuff – from “you can tune a piano but you can’t tuna fish”
