More Info:

Lackfoot's name reflected it's members' Native American heritage, and the group's Southern rock reflected it's beginnings in Jacksonville, Florida. After paying their dues with albums for Island and Epic, the quartet signed to Atco and struck it rich with STRIKES. The 1979 collection was recorded in Ann Arbor, Michigan with Brownsville Station's manager and drummer producing, giving the music additional hard rock heft (there's a great version of Free's "Wishing Well" here). The 10 tracks include Top 40 hits "Highway Song" and "Train, Train," which was written by frontman Rickey Medlocke's grandfather - and is probably the only song ever covered by both Dolly Parton and Warrant. Forty years after it's release, the platinum-certified STRIKES has lost none of it's bite.
