The 77s

Described by Larry Norman as being "too Christian for the radio, and too radio for the Church," the 77's were formed in Sacramento in the early '80s by Mike Roe (vocals, guitar) Mark Tootle (keyboards, guitar, vocals), Jan Eric Volz (bass, guitar, vocals) and drummer Mark Proctor. Known at first as the Savage Young Scratch Band, the Christian band changed their name and released Ping Pong over the Abyss in 1982, and then replaced Proctor with Aaron Smith for All Fall Down two years later. Mark Tootle left after the 77's live album 88, but the group split up after 1990's Sticks and Stones. Roe then re-formed the band with Smith and two-thirds of the Strawmen: Mark Harmon (bass, vocals) and David Leonhardt (rhythm guitar, vocals). Seventy Sevens (originally titled "Pray Naked") was released in 1992. Drowning with Land in Sight appeared in 1994, and was followed by tom tom Blues. Roe has also recorded as a solo artist and with the Lost Dogs. In the late '90s, the group formed their own Fools of the World label and reissued many of their older albums, as well as releasing 1999's EP and 2001's A Golden Field of Radioactive Crows among other new titles. ~ John Bush

Excellent cover !!!!!!!!

This is by far the best cover I've ever heard anyone do Bravo!!!!!

Pray Naked was pulled from Christian Bookstores in Savannah Ga because of the title and the cover on the CD. I know because I was there. I'm a Christian but the Christian Music Industry is controlled by big business and some of them are Christians. But they also have an image that they want to preserve. Not so much integrity or aesthetics - but sweetness. The Christian church in America is Ozzie and Harriet Nelson. Who were they, that's your homework.

I thought I WAS listening to Robert Plant until I came back over and checked the screen. Darn good job 77! Loving that harmonica. (ok the whole band but the harp rules!).

Saw them in Chicago just a few days ago - they've still got it! Though I'm surprised Pandora only has three of their albums, and I definitely disappointed in the absence of Pray Naked / The Seventy Sevens

I saw them in Nashville during their Pray Naked Tour, and it was awesome to see Phil Keaggy come out at the end of their concert and jam out with Mike Roe!

Ping Pong Over the Abyss would be a great addition to the selected discography. That's still my favorite 77's album.

Just saw Mike Roe and David Leonhart in concert. Played acoustic and electric; no drums (well mostly) or bass. Even stripped down they sounded great!

one of the best live bands ever. if you can find their live album called "Eighty-eigh t " , it's excellent.

I saw them in St. Louis in the 90s in the basement of a church. Mike Roe and Co. blew the doors off!

first time hearin' this ~ & I must say, I like it! Actually, it's pretty faithful to Zep's version, agreed? But that's a good thing, uh-huh!

Blues roots, with easy transitions into funk, rap, easy listening on a solid rock platform. Roe's a treasure.

the 77's / Michael Roe is the best rock - rockblues what great music

Pandora..... T h e i r 2008 release , "holy ghost building", is a pure masterpiece. Mid 90"s release "Tom Tom Blues" debuted the current band line-up. These two albums as well as "sticks and stones", "88", and "Pray Naked" need to be added to this bands discography. . . . . r i g h t away!
What about Michael Roe????

Very underrated! Clean sound! Thanks!

Glad to have 77s here but also disappointed in the selection. I just requested Sticks and Stones, 88, and Pray Naked. You can too:

When you try to add a song or artist to one of your stations, or try to create a station from a song or artist, and Pandora doesn't recognize it, please let us know! Send your music suggestions to: suggest-musi c @ p a n d o r a . c o m .
