It is Hump Day!  Hope you had a good one.  I am still rolling through the letter “R” in my Deep Cuts series and tonight I am featuring the band that will be co-headlining Ribfest this summer for us with Styx…REO Speedwagon!

They were recently voted Illinois’ favorite touring band.  They have been playing for us for so long, and still have a sound that is pleasant to the ears.  Great ballads, rocking tunes, and their album Hi-Infidelity is one of the biggest selling records of the 1980’s.  Their place in rock history is secure.

So in looking through their musical library, could I find 4 Deep Cuts to count as my favorites? You bet!

I Do’ Wanna Know- Wheels Are Turnin’

Tough Guys- Hi-Infidelity

I Don’t Wanna Lose You- The Hits

Flying Turkey Trot- REO

Give them a listen below and let me know what you think and if you agree with my choices.  Thank you for listening!
