2016 ANALOUGE PRODUCTIONS reissue on 200g LP -Featuring "Rocky Mountain Way," "Book Ends" and more Remastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio 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 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.
