I give it a 5 because Joe Walsh is so great anything he does is always really amazing. And also because I've met Joe Vitale and he is one of the coolest people ever, you couldn't find a nicer, or more kick a-- drummer.

Recorded at much the same time as when Walsh was recording the final Eagles' album, 'The Long Run', 'But Seriously Folks' sounds surprisingly upbeat and energetic compared to its sullen Eagles' companion. Clear from the album's cover, Walsh humour is no less diminished as he's pictured submerged in the swimming pool enjoying a spot of lunch.

Walsh was obviously bristling with inspiration of new and inventive techniques around the time of penning and recording this album and, as a consequence, 'But Seriously Folks' shows a new maturity in Walsh's playing and writing style (as hinted at with his comic title.)

Highlights are 'At the Station', 'Over and Over', 'Inner Tube/Theme From Boat Weirdos', and the wonderful and autobiographical, 'Life's been Good', perhaps just a little bit too revealing about this loveable rogue!

    Song List
  • Over and Over
  • Second Hand Store
  • Indian Summer
  • At the Station
  • Tomorrow
  • Inner Tube
  • Theme from Boat Weirdos

Highly recommended !!
