Joe Walsh's blues-edged guitar riffs helped define the 'take no prisoners' approach to the rowdy rock & roll party of the seventies. His vocals and guitar work were a call to arms to cut loose and get down. Prior to his well-received service with the Eagles, ,Walsh headed the James Gang, writing and singing their hits, "Walk Away," "The Bomber" and the Beatles-influenced "Midnight Man." All of these and more are contained in this best-of compilation. Along with a healthy portion of his work with the James Gang, this disc also features selections from his solo releases of the '80s, including the sardonic "Life's Been Good" and the rocking "All Night Long."
This is the definitive Joe Walsh-collection. The double-disc "Look At What I Did" is simply too much for anyone but the very serious fan (and the very serious fan probably has Joe's studio albums and doesn't need a compilation album).
But this one gets it right. Fifteen songs culled from Walsh's solo career, as well as his James Gang-days (although a real James Gang-lover should probably go get their Greatest Hits in addition to this album).
And all the best and best-known songs are here: "Walk Away", "Turn To Stone", "Help Me Trough The Night", "All Night Long", "Life's Been Good" and ten more. No filler at all, and even though some fans could probably point to one or two tracks that definately should have been here, this will satisfy almost everyone who doesn't want to invest in the original albums.
