Live and Let Live Bloody Tourists Look Hear?

Bloody Tourists is 10cc's sixth studio album .

Dreadlock Holiday (No. 1 in Great Britain in August 1978), Reds in My Bed and For You and I (with the B-side I'm Not in Love ) were released as singles . For You and I was released as a 12 "promo in the US. The cover was again designed by the Hipgnosis team. Bloody Tourists reached number three on the UK album charts and number 69 on the Billboard 200 in the United States.


Donald A. Guarisco of Allmusic wrote that although the album contained a few hits, it was "a less consistent and catchy affair than its predecessor." Die-hard fans could be happy that the casual listener should better buy a greatest hits album. He awarded two out of five stars.
