5.0 out of 5 stars Joe in a sober tone, apart from laundry mat!, 31 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: So What (Audio CD)
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. Hear him on the latest Eagles CDs and Blu-ray videos, better then ever!

Joe had the guts to publicly admit his problems, and is a shining example of coming back to his self after re-hab.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vintage '74 : Welcome to Joe's Club, 2 Dec. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: So What (Audio CD)
A lot of characteristic bits in here, which only became that way in time for Joe to lose them and become completely uncharacteristic in a new script.
Opening track "Welcome to the Club" spells satisfaction in heavy mood chords. Caustic and cutting in its jaunty, jolly devil, welcoming us to the Hell Club. No it isn't easy.
More acoustically satisfying, he becomes Uncle Joe for "Falling Down". Same club more comfort. I know, I know.
The instrumental "Pavane" is attached to the last guitar chord, bringing in orchestral strings and medieval sounds which King Arthur may not have recognised. Guinevere would have been a pushover though.
Jing Jing and it could be the Beatles, in "Time Out", though not any more, but Joe knew their aethos. Some druggy references in the lyrics, symptomatic of the time. Any old time.
Now, for a short break with "All night laundrymat Blues". A bunch of laid back cuties in jeans smelling funny and being just like Doctor Hook.
Another classic coming up. "Turn to Stone". Mr. Henley and Mr. Frey, make their early appearance. This track is almost perfect, not surprising given the presence of these guiding Eagles.
A gracious interlude continues with the feathery duo behind our man again for "Help Me Thru The Night". It sounds good, it washes all your cares away and by golly it does you good. Country apples for Northerners.
Joe(W) and Joe (V)itale, give it some stick in a slow rocker "County Fair". Comfortable, and inventive. Some very good measured interactions between the two and some spaced out backing. Excellent end passage, if you don't mind me saying so. If I had to say it, this would be the best track for me, but since I don't, I won't.
A gentle mood finish, complete with strings again, for "Song for Emma". This is the schmaltz, but nobody minds anymore. He's paid his dues and it is good.

5.0 out of 5 stars A favourite from the 70's, 12 May 2014

Hearing these tracks round again simply confirms it for me. Terrific guitar rifs, Clever lyrics, fun feel. For me it's Joe Walsh's best work. Turn the bass up for some very skillful drumming.

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.
