Editors’ Notes

Having found himself back with The Eagles, guitarist Joe Walsh hasn't had as much time to pursue the louder end of his musical spectrum. Produced by Jeff Lynne, Analog Man features the dense harmonies and tight arrangements you'd expect from an encounter with the man who gave Electric Light Orchestra, Tom Petty's Full Moon Fever, and The Traveling Wilburys their sound. Yet the guitars are also plenty loud, and even on a tightly compressed and quick track like "Wrecking Ball," Walsh finds the space to crank out a few riffs. "Lucky That Way," cowritten by Tommy Lee James, sounds like the follow-up to Walsh's classic 1978 hit "Life's Been Good." "Funk 50" is an update of Walsh's James Gang's "Funk 49." It's tidied up like it's 1993, and Walsh's last solo album, Songs for a Dying Planet, has a timely follow-up. "Band Played On" adds a sitar. "Spanish Guitar" works through country, flamenco, and pop. "Family" brings in David Crosby and Graham Nash for harmony. "India" lets Walsh try out some very digital-sounding equipment. Could this merry prankster be kidding us with all this talk of being an Analog Man?

Analog Man-Joe Walsh

I never buy music for the lyrics including this cd because I feel lyrics are the least important part of the song, but when it coms to Joe's songs they usually are so simple and so common sense that one has no choice but follow the story, riffs and melodies are also simple enough that everyone can catch and enjoy, I don,t mean that everything here is too simple, oh no there is challenging and beautiful material here, great production and well crafted songs! songs that still give you a feeling of music which is hard to find in new music these days, with all this technology mite as well stay ANALOG. This is a very nice CD

From his early hits with the James Gang through to his tenure with the Eagles -- as well as a successful solo career -- Joe Walsh remained one of the most colorful characters in rock & roll, lending his distinctively reedy vocals, off-the-wall lyrics, and expansive guitar leads to a series of AOR staples including "Funk #49," "Rocky Mountain Way," and "Life's Been Good." Born November 20, 1947 in Wichita, Kansas, Walsh initially studied the oboe and clarinet, later playing bass in local bands the...
