Joe Walsh So What on Numbered Limited Edition Hybrid SACD from Audio Fidelity
Best known for his powerful guitar licks, Joe Walsh has entertained the masses and captivated his peers for more than four decades with such classics as “Funk #49,” “Walk Away,” “Life’s Been Good” and “Ordinary Average Guy.” In 1969 Walsh found success with The James Gang, followed by a stint with the trio Barnstorm. In 1973 Joe released his first solo album, which proved him a legitimate solo act with a limitless career on the horizon. By 1975 he joined The Eagles, bringing a harder rock sound to the group with the acclaimed Hotel California, The Long Run and Eagles Live.
1974's So What is classic Joe Walsh and it came at a peak time in his career. His second official solo studio effort contains the usual high-caliber musicianship, great production and muscular guitar work he's become known and loved for, however, his greatest skill here may be his affinity for knowing exactly when to let loose and when to lay back.
A handful of definitive Walsh tracks are featured including a refined version of the Barnstrom cut "Turn To Stone," plus "Welcome To the Club," "Help Me Through the Night" and "Song For Emma" while pals Don Henley, Glenn Frey, JD Souther and Randy Meisner of his future group the Eagles even contribute backing vocals on a few numbers.
Joe Walsh recorded a succession of consistently high quality solo albums in the first half of the '70s...any or all of these records should be on the shelves of the discerning collector. With So What, Walsh has never done better. This numbered limited edition Hybrid SACD from Audio Fidelity is compatible with all SACD and CD players!
