By J. Kerr
Format:Audio CD
Jimmy's debut solo album appeared in 1988 when he found himself between collaborations (The Firm and Coverdale-Page). "Wasting My Time" sets off with a suitably upbeat riff, John Miles on vocals sharing the punctuation with Jimmy's clean chords during verses, bottleneck guitar at the end of the line. Inevitably, comparisons with certain Led Zeppelin recordings will be made (particularly so when one lineup contains Robert Plant, and Bonzo's son Jason Bonham, in "The Only One", a Page/Plant composition - turn up that guitar echo, one notch past Eddie Cochrane). In this case, the tempo and the production can be traced squarely to the closing track of Physical Graffiti, but the song stands out on its own.
"Wanna Make Love" - with that title, you'd probably expect just the rockalong boogie that Jimmy starts off playing. His heavy rhythm work is loud and prominent, expertly framing John Miles' strutting sexual lyric. But wait for the chorus, and this axeman's gotta hooge surprise in for yer! He can hardly race to the end-of-the-bar riff quickly enough, prior to _s_t_r_e_t_c_h_i_n_g_ out the tension before the next crashing windmill stroke. And that tension, in these multiply-pregnant pauses, seems to heighten and lengthen with each repetition. This is the same dramatic combination of timed interruptions and whammy bar work that he used to such great effect on "For Your Life" (on Zeppelin's "Presence" album), but here it's taken to its absolute limit. Three such breaks in particular, taken near the end of the song, sounds so deliriously dazed and climactic - well it works for me. This track has genius at work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Real good stuff, but don't expect Zep 7 Jan 2009
Format:Audio CD
Approach this as the work of a great blues rock guitarist and song writer and not as the a Led Zep record and you'll be delighted with the maturity and skill of songwriting and musicianship.
It's more a 4.5 than a 4, only stopping short of a 5 as there isn't a song of the magick of a Stairway, Kashmere, Dazed etc.

This is an excellent effort from Jimmy. John Miles does an excellent Plant impression on the Zep like tracks Wasting my time and Wanna make love with Chris Farlowe producing amazing vocals on the 3 blues tracks, the Only One with Plant is pretty average by their standards but the standout tracks for me are the 3 instrumental tracks which just goes to show the variety of Jimmy's playing, shame there was never a follow up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outrider 18 May 2013

This is a fantastic album, often over-looked by non-Zeppelin fans, my record was in excellent condition and plays beautifully. More people should have this in their collection! Jimmy collaborates to make some wonderful pieces.

Jimmy Page for me and many rock fans is inspirational guitar player and musical visionary. The sheer excitement he could create on a guitar, the variety of styles tackled and the ability to conjure up memorable riffs and compositions mark him apart from most of the competition.Sad to say, 'Outrider' doesn't do the great man full justice. The instrumentals, particularly 'Emerald Eyes' and 'Liquid Mercury' are outstanding and would be good enough to fit on to any Zep album. But facts are facts, most of the rest is fairly mundane.The album opener 'Wasting My Time' features the sort of riff and crunching chord sequence that could wake the dead. Lyrically and vocally though matters are not quite of the same hue- not so much bad as a little routine. While most bands would be proud to be associated with an album of this type,we unfairly or not, expect more from Jimmy Page.

The problem with the album as I see it is that it is a little to monochrome and disjointed. Having three vocalists does not give a sense of continuity. The blues tunes are rather too limp and uninspired to hold the attention.'Prison Blues' is far too formulaic to be anything but a 12 bar grind,even though Jimmy does come up with the sort of electrifying solo that we would associate from some of the blues -rock items on the Zep's first album. Elsewhere ,guitar playing wise Jimmy produces some rather tasty solos,witness his sinuous efforts on 'hummingbird' and his lovely bends on 'Emerald Eyes', but great playing is no substitute for composition or sophisticated arrangements.

I rather like 'Outrider' but even in my most uncritical moments, I know this is a flawed effort.Jimmy remains a great guitar player. He needs to get to work with people who share his vision, rather then ad-hoc journeymen, however talented.
