5.0 out of 5 stars JOIN IN ON THE GANG BANG March 4 2000
Format:Audio CD
The James Gang got a lucky break when they hired Tommy Bolin to fill the guitar spot, not only did he come in with all of the albums songs already written but it gave The Gang an opportunity to work with one of the most gifted and talented guitarists ever. The James Gang Bang album is essentially a Tommy Bolin project album in all but name. Tommy brought the songs in from his prior band Energy, who were unable to get a recording contract, so this gave Tommy the chance to get those songs heard, albeit, through the James Gang. None of the other members of the Gang wrote for this album except singer Roy Kenner's accapella Rather Be Alone With You. All the rest are 100% Bolin and Energy songs. Kicking off this album is Standing In The Rain, a rocker suitable for James Gang. More great guitar songs follow like Must Be Love, Got No Time For Trouble and The Devil Is Singing Our Song. All beautiful mini masterpieces. Tommy does get a lead vocal shot on Alexis, an acoustic song which not only showcases Tommy's great guitar but his beautiful voice. All in all this is a must own for everyone rock and a far departure from the Joe Walsh era James Gang.

The James Gang did some regrouping after the loss of Joe Walsh to a solo career. They recruited Roy Kenner (Vocals) and Domenic Troiano (Guitar) to replace Walsh...and it became quicky apparent that while Kenner was a dynamic vocalist, Troiano's style didn't fit the Gang's sound. They apparently agreed, and picked up young Guitar phenom Tommy Bolin. I rushed home from the record store when this was released in '73, and was not disappointed. It's not only my favorite Gang album, it's one of my favorite Rock albums of all time. Great, well-crafted songs, great playing, very satisfying album. I couldn't recommend it higher...and judging by the fact that it is becoming recognized now as a Classic, I'm not alone in my sentiments. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lost Classic Rides Again June 21 2001
Format:Audio CD
After seeing Joe Walsh in concert recently I started thinking about which James Gang and Joe Walsh albums I had in my collection. Thinking back to when I attended graduate school I remember anticipating the Bang album as a second iteration of the original Gang. I was impressed then and even more impressed now. This is no "one hit wonder" album. All of the music is enjoyable. In the vein of "The Ashes, The Rain and I", "Mystery" carries on the Gang tradition of combining rock and classical. "Alexis" is fresh enough to have been done currently by Metallica. Bang is currently my morning commute album, a great way to start the day.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites. April 1 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is fantastic.I had other james gang album with joe walsh,that is pretty good,the direction of the music is almost the same,but tommy bolin is a genius,a visionary,he had his place in the guitar panteon,togheter with hendrix and page.The energy and the feeling of the album is so intense,is very emotional,very honest.The singer roy kenner is awesome,your voice is a mix of plant with jagger,but with your own style.Every song is a tribute to pure hapiness.This album is obrigatory to all the people that like good music.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE GANG'S BEST, THANKS TO TOMMY July 2 1999
Format:Audio CD
This album is absolutely killin'. Rock and roll like it isn't made anymore. Tommy Bolin took them so far beynd anything Joe Walsh could even imagine, that they were lucky to get him. Tommy's brother told me one time that he wrote 8 songs for them in about a week, most of which appeared on this record. "Miami" is also quite worthwhile, but I think the Gang's "Bang" was their finest moment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their Best song Dec 12 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Devil Is Singing Our Song is the Gang's best song ever - Bolin's guitar tracks are monstrous, and bone chilling, and Kenner sounds like a man possessed. This whole album is major, major league, and anything with Tommy Bolin automatically rates as rock history .Any comparisons to Walsh or others is pointless; Tommy Bolin was EASILY the most progressive guitarist of the era (just ask Jeff Beck).

5.0 out of 5 stars Bang Album has classical Aug. 11 2001
Format:Audio CD
The song Mystery is the most innovative song I have ever heard. It has the most wonderful classical piece. I love Rock music, but when it is so cleverly put together with acoustical and classical....it's fantastic. Be sure to listen to it on the album. It's truly a classic. The whole album is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars TOMMY NEVER SHOULD HAVE LEFT,THIS BAND! April 15 2000
Format:Audio CD
After Joe left,they put out a couple stupid lps. In Feb.74' James Gang opened for SLADE. Tommy came out and just grabed everybody and pulled us in.(SLADE stunk) The next day they sold tons of BANG! I will always have a copy of this somewhere. To bad they have no live cd from this tour.

Easily the best of the post Joe Walsh albums but the cover? If the art department really cared about JG Mark III, they would have spent some money on the cover as the boys are not... Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars And that's not very good at all
Well maybe when it came out many years ago it was a classic album but I doubt it. I wouldn't waste a minute listening to it.

Let's get this out of the way first. The Walsh vs. Bolin arguments are "apples and oranges" all the way! Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars I'm sorry
Not to be a spoiled sport, but I can't possibly agree that Bang is in the same league as Yer Album or Rides Again. While it has its moments, it wears thin very quickly. Read more
