Yeah, it's funny how my tastes in music have evolved over the years. I went through stages where I would only listen to one genre at a time and then I would re-listen to some of the tapes I had of some of the other other genres and eventually add the next type to my collection. I buy older, newer and brand new music now of all different genres. As long as it sounds good to me, I'll buy it. Right now, it's First Aid Kit from Sweden.

I like how you mentioned Good Trouble, but the only song I liked on that album is "The Key". Personally, I preferred the Mike Murphy lead vocal sound on the albums Ridin' the Storm Out, and This Time We Mean It. For Cronin fans, I would recommend R.E.O. (aka C.O.W. because of the cover art) and Nine Lives, which is to me, their last great album just before they really hit it big with the super commercially successful Hi Infidelity.

Although I have almost all of their albums on tape (still) up until The Earth, A Small Man, His Dog and A Chicken (which unfortunately killed my interest in REO), I've never upgraded anything to CD after Nine Lives. In my opinion, losing Gary Richrath sealed REO's fate with me. The double album, A Decade Of Rock And Roll 1970 to 1980 perfectly paints the picture of my favorite era of REO and also has the song "Sophisticated Lady" with vocalist Terry Luttrell. (Yep, there were two OTHER lead vocalists in REO Speedwagon besides Cronin.)
