good

Do It For Love is awful (Bruce Springsteen anthem, anyone?) but the rest of the songs are good to great. Several of the bonus track versions are superior to the official album versions, so you can mix-and-match to make the album even better.

There are two albums called "The Seventy Sevens"

The review by "Thom Granger, All Music Guide" is for a later album on Word records. This record is their lone release on Island Records. Full of hook-laden songs, the opener, "Do It For Love", should have put the band in the national spotlight. This album runs the gamut, from jangly guitar hits to the sad ballad "Frames Without Phoptographs"; From the free-form rocker "Pearls Before Swine", to fan favorite "The Lust, The Flesh, The Eyes And The Pride Of Life", to the depressing Roe solo acoustic rant "I Could Laugh" which finishes the album. These are 9 unique songs that showed a glimmer of what this band could do at it's best. This is among my top 5 albums of all time.

thom is wrong...

75nathans

he is writing about a later record by the 77's. while that album is good & has great moments, i would say this entry, originally from island records, is the band's pinnacle. one of mike roe's best A sides ever.

Give it a try and your life will be better for it. Download "Do It For Love" and "The Lust, the Flesh, the Eyes and the Pride of Life" for a taste, and you'll want the whole thing.

They Say All Music Guide

Originally titled “Pray Naked,” the record company went with a self-titled approach instead for this mostly pop collection, with the exception of the Zeppelin-like “Woody,” and the unlisted “title” cut, an eight-minute Middle Eastern rave-up. – Thom Granger
