By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
The CD reviewed above is superb music-wise, but sound-wise, it's an ok-only mid 90's non-remastered bog standard US issue with a crap slip inlay. And for an audiophile's dream of an album (beautifully produced by Walsh himself) is a huge let down. That is until now.

In Oct 2004 in Japan, they re-issued "Barnstorm" (1972, his debut solo LP), "The Smoker You Drink, The Player You Get" (1973, his 2nd album) and "So What" (1974, his 3rd and last studio album for ABC) on CD in 24-bit remastered form (says so on the booklets). And better still, they are full US REPRO MINI LP SLEEVES - complete with So What's embossed outer and inner sleeves - and both Smoker & Barnstorm in their hard card gatefolds - very tastefully done. I finally got all three and fans should know that the sound on all is fabulous - especially Smoker & So What. If you're a lover of these 70's classics, you must own them!

"So What" has guest appearances from Randy Meisner, Don Henley and Glenn Frey of The Eagles with J.D. Souther and Dan Fogelberg contributing too (so sad to hear of his recent loss). "Turn To Stone", "Time Out". "Help Me Through The Night" and the gorgeous melodic rock of "County Fair" are just some of the highlights.

As Japanese imports, "So What" and the other 2 titles are not cheap for sure and you'll have to root them out to buy them (eBay/Amazon USA), but they're worth every penny. Joe Walsh and Eagles fans have been waiting for these for years.

Come on Geffen! Re-issue the great man's catalogue in the UK! And do it properly! Why do we have to look abroad for decent issues??

4.0 out of 5 stars Joe rocks 6 Dec 2006
By D. J. H. Thorn TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Much of Joe Walsh's solo output is quite laid back, but his follow up to the formidable 'The Smoker You Drink...' recalls his time with The James Gang. Critically overshadowed by its predecessor, 'So What' deserves rather more attention. The outstanding rocker, 'Turn To Stone' is a regular feature in Walsh compilations, but 'Time Out' is almost as good, reminiscent in feel to gems such as 'Walk Away'. Opening track, 'Welcome To The Club', is in similar vein and is characteristically droll.

There are a couple of short novelty items, Ravel's straitlaced classical piece, 'Pavanne', as performed on moog, and the comedy track, 'All Night Laundry Mat Blues'. The other tracks are in a more familiar, gentle style, bolstered by lush harmonies. Special mention, however, should be made of 'County Fair', a swirling, smouldering, slowburner that combines eerie effects and mesmeric guitar playing across its six minutes.

Walsh's old mates, Passarelli and Vitale, add their usual expertise, together with a loose aggregation of top quality musicians, including future colleagues from The Eagles. 'So What' is a solid, satisfying album with some outstanding moments.

5.0 out of 5 stars 1974 11 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Most of us know that Joe walsh joined the Eagles and rocked em up. Did you also know that most of the eagles are on this album in a backing kinda way. So return the favour and Hotel california is born . anyway this'So what' album is a J W classic. I still love Welcome to the club, Turn to stone a special song that Joe keeps recording altering and this is still the Best version.!and the beautiful haunting interplay of drums and guitar on country fair. Shame there are no outakes to add as a bonus, never mind.The ideas this man has in his head will keep him going for decades!

*** THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE APRIL 2009 JAPAN-ONLY 'SHM-CD' (and February 2011 reissue) OF "SO WHAT by JOE WALSH ****

There are now 3 Japanese variants of this album on CD and I'd like to clear up what's what...

1st - on the 21st of October 2004, Joe Walsh's first three solo LPs were finally reissued in remastered CD form, but only in Japan. "Barnstorm" (his 1972 debut) on Universal UICY-9477, "The Smoker You Drink, The Player You Get" (1973) on UICY-9478 and "So What" on UICY-9479. In detailed mini-LP repro sleeves (complete with hard-card gatefolds for the first two and "So What's embossed inner sleeve) they were 24-bit remastered by HITOSHI TAKIGUCHI in Universal's Mastering Studios. Not surprisingly, they sold out almost immediately and across the next few years (with no equivalent domestic releases), they quickly became very expensive collector's items.

2nd - on 22 April 2009 all 3 of the above were reissued on the SUPER HIGH MATERIALS format (SHM-CD) - "Barnstorm" on Universal UICY-94062, "The Smoker You Get, The Player You Get." on UICY-94063 and "So What" on UICY-94064. There is also an additional title not in the original list - his 4th album - the 1976 live set "You Can't Always Argue With A Sick Mind" which is on UICY-94065 (with 2009 Remastering and Card Outer/Inner Sleeves). The repro artwork (including lyric booklets) for each of the original three is exactly the same as the 2004 issues - as is the mastering - the ONLY difference is that the CD itself is a higher spec SHM-CD.

3rd issue is the first 3 of the above 2009 SHM-CDs reissued on 23 February 2011 (again in Japan only - same artwork - ltd editions) with a different catalogue number (Universal UICY-75007 for "So What"). I've bought one and it's exactly the same as the 2009 issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joe in a sober tone, apart from laundry mat!
Great album before Joe went downhill, the next great album is Analogue Man. Those that I've heard recorded in between probably reflect his well known dark period. Read more

One of Joe's master-pieces. A great album, big songs, highly recommended. Good quality CD and sound - the warm valve type from the 70's.
