The best available Joe Walsh-compilation
Docendo Discimus | Vita scholae | 05/04/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is the definitive Joe Walsh-collection. The double-disc "Look At What I Did" is simply too much for anyone but the very serious fan (and the very serious fan probably has Joe's studio albums and doesn't need a compilation album).But this one gets it right. Fifteen songs culled from Walsh's solo career, as well as his James Gang-days (although a real James Gang-lover should probably go get their Greatest Hits in addition to this album). And all the best and best-known songs are here: "Walk Away", "Turn To Stone", "Help Me Trough The Night", "All Night Long", "Life's Been Good" and ten more. No filler at all, and even though some fans could probably point to one or two tracks that definately should have been here, this will satisfy almost everyone who doesn't want to invest in the original albums."
Not Perfect, But Pretty Close!

"As a longtime fan of Joe Walsh's work, this is clearly the best sampler for those looking to explore the guitarist's catalogue. Yet, completists will want to pick this up because of the inclusion of the complete version of "The Bomber" -- with the previously-editied Bolero in the middle. Also of note, it includes Joe's last great song, "The Confessor" (whereas the rest of that album, The Confessor, was rather mediocre) and the studio version of "All Night Long." In terms of compilation, this is far preferable to the disappointing Look What I Did (which suffers from questionable song selections, particularly from the 80s-period on).Personally, I would have chosen a couple of different tracks -- "County Fair" from So What, for example -- but all of Joe's 70s-period albums from Barnstorm up to But Seriously Folks are well worth picking up anyway."
Almost All of the Best from Joe Walsh

"This compact disc has almost all of the best tunes that Joe Walsh made during his period with the James Gang through his days with Barnstorm and his solo career, not including any of the music he made with the Eagles. I'm giving this compilation four stars instead of five due to one glaring omission: "In the City" from the Warriors soundtrack.
One reviewer claims falsely that "In the City" is an Eagles song. If you check out the soundtrack cd for the film "The Warriors" you can confirm that the song is credited to Joe Walsh, not the Eagles. The reviewer may be confused as the Eagles covered "In the City" on their "The Long Run" album (after Joe Walsh's solo version) - either that or he was smoking the same stuff as the Amazon editorial reviewer who claims that this compilation includes the song "Bolero" (see above).
