200g Vinyl LP Pressing Mastered from the Original Analog Master Tapes by Kevin Gray
Everybody knows the greatness that is "Smoky Mountain Way" and it's almost impossible not to get swept up in its charm. It's just one of the many reasons that 1973's The Smoker You Drink, The Player You Get proved to be Joe Walsh's solo breakthrough. Released in-between stints with the James Gang and Eagles, this isn't just your average '70s classic rock album, rather it's a rock 'n' roll smorgasbord that traverses many different moods and styles from the the dark "Wolf" to the bouncy "Happy Ways" to the soaring "Meadows" to the breezy "Days Gone By." There's a reason Joe Walsh has been the secret weapon in every band he's played in and the multi-faceted The Smoker You Drink, The Player You Get is as good an indicator as any as to why!
