There arent too many legends like guitar hero Joe Walsh. From his midwest beginnings with The James Gang, he racked up enough significant sales and airplay to warrant his very own massive solo career, then performing later with Barnstorm and then three decades plus with The Eagles. Again, there arent too many like Joe Walsh.
As if a whirlwind tour and unbelievable album success with The Eagles Hotel California werent enough for this spirited guitarist, Joe Walsh went back into the studio in 1978 and created his own top chart platter But Seriously, Folks.
Filled with eight unprecedented Joe Walsh rockers, But Seriously, Folks was truly one of his most enduring classics thanks to the eight minute burner Lifes Been Good. This song will forever be associated with the seventies rock superstar lifestyle binge as it was also a featured song in the rock movie soundtrack extravaganza FM.
Even more time tested tracks like the blues rocker At The Station, AOR classics Over And Over and Tomorrow plus the brilliant and melodic Indian Summer made this the album of choice for many rock radio programmers for over a year upon its initial release.
As a first installment in Friday Music's Joe Walsh 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series, they present his career masterwork But Seriously, Folks... in a first time ever high quality vinyl release.
