Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: But Seriously Folks... (Audio CD)
I love rock music. the standard four piece group Led Zep for instance. when I expanded my musical horizons I bought a few records by Joe Walsh after seeing a song on the beebs Old grey whistle test. and over the years I have almost all his output.I still keep coming back to 'But seriously folks.' Joe writes songs about every day problems and pours his heart out in a way a hell of a lotta writers cant. for example Tomorrow track five, We all have a times found there is so much to do that you just cant organize your self to fit it all in!as Joe puts it sit yourself down and make a list of all the things to do, then worry about it tomorrow! third song Indian summer, clever lyrics again.( we never needed bait where we use to go, just a safety pin hook on a bamboo pole, take the big ones home let the little ones go). What I mean is there are no songs about what he's gunner do to his woman when he gets her home or how much he misses his (baby) type stuff just intelligent well written songs and really great music. imagine when recording the basic tracks with guitar bass drums and keyboards, then adding little sections of flute, vocal harmonies and layered guitar parts it is an incredible album and I hope I have explained why!
