Format: Audio CD
A classic cd containing some of the finest guitar work from a musician who also played alongside one of the greatest rock vocalists, David Coverdale. This slightly rockier album in comparison to 'Teaser' contains some mind blowing tracks, such as Post Toastie, Shake the Devil and not forgetting the wonderfully laid back track in Sweet Burgundy. Previously deleted for some time this reissued classic is a must for those of you who remember listening to it on vinyl.Sadly no longer with us, Tommy's musical talents live on. G. Davies Oct 2003

There are great albums,classic albums,legendary albums,then there is this album,an album which is so good yet so unknown that it makes you weep.

Tommy Bolin's 2nd solo album (after '75's Teaser)is a sublime mix of rock,funk,soul,mixing heavy with mellow,light and shade,rockers and ballads and is one of my favourite discs.

Highlights include the stunning opener 'Bustin Out For Rosy' a fantastic piece of typical 70's rock/funk(if Santana had produced this we would never stop hearing about it),the majestic ballad 'Sweet Burgundy',a song so beautiful,it lights up your mood and you smile instantly,while 'Post Toastie' with its fuzz drenched riff rattles your speakers and makes you wonder why he couldnt hack it with Purple.
That was side 1 in the old vinyl days,side 2 opened with the super funky 'Shake The Devil' before the laid back sounds of 'Gypsy Soul','Someday...' and 'Hello Again' soothe your mind before the bluesy 'You Told Me That You Loved Me' rounds off the experience.Simply a superb disc which requires the lights down low ,a glass of wine in hand with your lady snuggled up close and allow all your worries to slip away for a while as this disc transports you to music heaven,a genuine classic.

and Sweet Burgundy one the greatest songs.

Shame the CD cover has replaced the Gold with Yellow. Just looks wrong.

and not sure the production is quite right. I prefer my vinyl copy.

Here we have Tommy`s second solo album and why did it quietly slip by? maybe the groups he played with never really made much of an impact here in the UK.I had followed Tommy from his days in James gang to Deep Purple and have always thought that his Visions on the J G album Bang were fantastic lifting the band up by their grubby collars and projecting them to a six star rock band, meanwhile playing live gigs with his old band as backing muso`s The Tommy Bolin Band crept around the US circuit,( these recordings seeing the light of day after his death) Over watched by his big bruv, so Tommy then takes the batton and steps in to Ritchie Blackmore`s guitar shoes and remoulds Deep purple , should he with hindsight have joined the Purps I would say NO. It would of been much better to tour and record under his own name slowly winning friends and admirers, Back to the Private eyes CD If you need convincing just Listen to the 1st four tracks. This guy ROCKS and will take all listeners on a wonderful journey.!SIX star album. Teaser should be looked over as well!!

Not Bolin's best album by a long chalk, the drugs were taking a heavy toll by this time and it shows in the mish mash of styles and production that were not apparent on Teaser which is a 5 star album (as are James Gang Bang, Spectrum & Come Taste the Band - all the aforementioned now remastered to great effect)

Having said that it does have its moments and it certainly wasn't helped by the 1990 original CD pressing which is flat & boring. The japan blu ray remaster of 2013 is a vast improvement in sound quality, albeit it cruelly exposes the edits & post production that was added to provide a gloss to some of the lesser songs.

Certainly all the above mentioned Bolin albums should be purchased first (James Gang Bang is perhaps the best US studio rock album of the early 70s and is now in a 2 for 1 remaster with the 4 star follow up Miami) but if you want Private Eyes this is the version to get on CD
