Let's get this out of the way first. The Walsh vs. Bolin arguments are "apples and oranges" all the way! Think of Jim Fox and Dale Peters (James Gang drummer and bassist) as the "Sly and Robbie" of 70's American rock. These were two solid musicians who were fortunate enough to hook up with two of the era's most gifted guitarist/songwriters; Joe Walsh and Tommy Bolin each brought thier own unique artistic sensibilities to the table. It is therefore unfair, and uninformed, to stack each "version" of the Gang against the other. That said, classic rock enthusiasts will find a feast of tasty music on this 1974 Tommy Bolin-led release.You won't find a weak cut on here, from the anthemic "Standing In The Rain", with its goosebump-inducing opening salvo of joyous "Baba O' Reilly" style chords, to the haunting closer "Mystery", this one holds you in thrall. Only complaint: the 1991 CD mastering is hissy and thin; hopefully we'll see an improved version soon!
