iTunes Editors’ Notes

Call it prophecy when Eddie Money sang “I tell you right now/I’m gonna play Madison Square Garden” on the four-chord strutter “Wanna Be a Rock ’n’ Roll Star,” because, well, this 1977 debut album made him a rock ’n’ roll star, and he did wind up playing Madison Square Garden. And good on it, because this is hearty rock ’n’ roll, full of riffy ’70s-style bravado (“Gamblin’ Man,” “Jealousies”), balladizing (“Save a Little Room in Your Heart”), melodic semi-rocking hit singles (“Two Tickets to Paradise,” “Baby Hold On”), and some blue-eyed R&B (“So Good to Be in Love Again”). Money had some soulfulness in his voice (which is why it works well on a version of Smokey Robinson’s “You Really Got a Hold on Me”) and some earnestness behind the delivery. The songwriting and execution here transcend his band’s bar-playing roots, and the songs have surprising staying power, which pretty much makes this album a ’70s rock classic. That, and it was produced by music-biz legend Bruce Botnick (Love, The Doors).

8 Track Days

Great album! Remember Eddie rockin for the troops in Misawa, Japan! This was one of my first 8 track tapes purchased!!

The Man with No Control and his stellar debut

Having seen Eddie on his first major tour in 1977 (he opened for Sammy Hagar) it can be said without hesitation that his band along with the strong material on this debut played with gusto and passion. Some artists are a bit embarassed by their first releases but the Money Man has nothing to hang his head about here as this debut shows the promise of an emerging artist whose songs would become a staple of AOR for years to come.

Eddie Money arrived in the late '70s at the height of album rock's popularity. While Money didn't have a remarkable voice, he had a knack for catchy, blue-collar rock & roll, which he delivered with a surprising amount of polished, radio-friendly finesse. He was able to survive in the early MTV era by filming a series of funny narrative videos, something his AOR peers were reluctant to do. However, he wasn't able to resist the temptations of a rock & roll lifestyle, and his popularity dipped...
