Reseña de álbum

After the breakup of Deep Purple in 1976, guitarist Tommy Bolin wasted little time beginning work on his second solo album, Private Eyes. While it was more of a conventional rock album than its predecessor, Teaser (which served primarily as a showcase for his guitar skills and contained several jazz/rock instrumentals), it was not as potent. The performances aren't as inspired as those on Teaser or even those on Bolin's lone album with Deep Purple, Come Taste the Band, although there a few highlights could be found. The nine-minute rocker "Post Toastee" merges a long jam section with lyrics concerning the dangers of drug addiction, while "Shake the Devil" is similar stylistically. But Bolin wasn't simply a hard-rocker; he was extremely talented with other kinds of music: the quiet, acoustic-based compositions "Hello, Again" and "Gypsy Soul," and the heartbroken ballad "Sweet Burgundy." With his solo career starting to take shape (after the album's release, he opened for some of rock's biggest names: Peter Frampton, Jeff Beck, Rush, ZZ Top, etc.), Bolin's life was tragically cut short at the end of the year due to a drug overdose in Miami, FL.

Underrated lost classic

I had a copy of this in High School on 8-Track. I loved it but the tape went bad, as 8-tracks are prone to do. I've been searching for 25 years for a replacement. It's that good. This is probably the best album you've never heard of.

Private Eyes

This is one of the best albums ever cut. Truly under appreciated. This is in my line up of "if I was stuck on an island and only had 10 albums..."

Bustin' Out For Perfection

The person who reviewed this album is clueless plus must have listened to it on mono speakers. Private Eyes was Bolin's best by a mile. Teaser was great too but the sound on this one is tighter. Post Toastee goes down as his show stopping closer and a classic. Weakest entry is "Hello, Again" but everything else is first class. There's just something special about this album which makes it rise above thousands of others. One of my all-time favorites.

It's hard to listen to the music of Tommy Bolin and not wonder what could've been if the exceptionally talented (and versatile) guitarist hadn't succumbed to a senseless drug overdose at the age of 25 — just as his career appeared to be taking off. In a recording career that lasted only several years, Bolin not only touched upon several styles (blues-rock, ballads, fusion, funk, reggae, and heavy metal), but showed that he could master each one — as evidenced by his two solo albums and...
