    A personal classic that knocked me out as a teenager when it was released in ’73 and that opened my ears to musical diversity with its range of rock, blues, jazz and folk all mixed in superbly written classic and dynamic songs that include Rocky Mountain Way, Dreams, Book Ends, Wolf, Midnight Moodies, Meadows and Days Gone By. The overall vibe and chemistry of the whole band on this iconic album is undeniable. Simply said, a classic.

    Love this album. It came out in 1973, by then Joe Walsh was a household name. ( in my house anyway). It’s not really a Joe Walsh LP but a really nice collaboration from the whole band. I have most of Joe’s LPs and the 2 Barnstorm albums and James Gang Rides Again are still on heavy rotation at home. Joe if you ever stumble across this, I still want my picture with you that should have happened at the Willie Nelson Picnic 1987. The band I was with opened before you at the WNP. This was before bottled water was invented. 100+ outside only beer and whiskey Getting back to the Smoker you drink. GREAT ALBUM !!!
