Edward Joseph Mahoney, a Brooklyn-born second-generation cop who eventually ditched his badge and gun to pursue his rock star dreams as Eddie Money — struck gold right off the bat with his 1977 self-titled debut album.

The record's leadoff single, "Baby Hold On," was actually its biggest hit, but the follow-up single "Two Tickets to Paradise," was a sort of spiritual cousin to Bruce Springsteen‘s "Rosalita (Come Out Tonight)." It's written from the perspective of a young guy who's desperately trying to convince his girlfriend to ignore her disapproving parents and come away with him "on a trip so far away from here." With its smooth production, urgent uptempo chorus, and insistent melodic hook, "Tickets" was a natural for late '70s FM radio — where it found an immediate home, eventually working its way all the way up to No. 22 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Although Money might have written "Two Tickets to Paradise" to convince a specific girl to leave town with him, its title became shorthand for that end-of-the-work-week feeling you get when you've fulfilled all of your responsibilities to the Man and you're free to relax without obligations for a little while — like, say, at at an Eddie Money concert, where "Tickets" has remained a constant fixture of the set list for more than 30 years.

We've done this Analogue Productions issue up right with top-of-the-line remastering direct from the original analog tape by Ryan Smith at Sterling Sound — for phenomenal sonic quality — and a richly detailed, silent-background Quality Record Pressings 180 gram LP. None better.

This album was a staple for me in my late teens and followed me through some troubled times. My original was beat to **** so when I found out Chad had given it the A.P. treatment it was a no brainer. This copy will stay pristine as I am a little older and wiser with a few more bucks in my pocket. You gained a loyal customer with this release. Thank You!

AP delivers another jewel.

I have a dozen or so Analogue Productions LPs. Every one of them is excellent and this one is no exception. This is a fun record too. Don't hesitate, get it.
