Remastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio

Old style gatefold tip-on jacket from Stoughton Printing

Plated and pressed on 200-gram audiophile vinyl at Quality Record Pressings!

In between his stints with the James Gang and the Eagles, Joe Walsh tackled his second solo studio album The Smoker You Drink The Player You Get which became his most successful solo outing. The 1973 LP continued the heavy and light rock mix of tracks found on his previous release, Barnstorm.

Analogue Productions has done reissue justice to the album that AllMusic decries "features some of the most remembered Joe Walsh tracks, but it's not just these that make the album a success. Each of the nine tracks is a song to be proud of. This is a superb album by anyone's standards."

To obtain the best sound possible we turned to Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio to remaster this superb album from the original analog tapes. Next we plated the lacquers and pressed LPs on 200-gram audiophile vinyl at the world's best LP maker, Quality Record Pressings. Top it all off with a deluxe Stoughton Printing gatefold tip-on jacket and you've got the makings for audiophile joy.

This amazingly eclectic rock gem has Joe's smash "Rocky Mountain Way," his hit "Meadows," plus "Bookends," "Wolf; Dreams" and more! Walsh's abililty to swing wildly from one end of the rock scale to the other is unparalleled and makes for an album to suit many tastes.

Joe's Masterpiece

This album was one of my favourites from the 1970's when I was 19 and this album has never sounded so good. The cover has been reproduced to a high quality as it was when it was released. I highly recommend it to all Joe fans.

Better Than 1973

Kevin and Chad have done it again ! This favorite from '73, when I was 15, and my buddies and I couldn't get enough of Joe's masterpiece, now sounds better than ever. Turning it up LOUD, the drums kick, the bass simmers, and Joe's slide is crystal clear. HIGHLY recommended.

Just the way it's supposed to be!

Having been derpived of my only copy of this album I'm glad to have this one as the replacement. The sound is first rate. This one is a keeper. In fact, I was going to suggest to Chad he use this album for his first UHQR. Wouldn't that be something?
