The Smoker you drink, the player you get - Joe Walsh
I. R. Wilkinson | UK | 10/01/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Joe Walsh goes back a long way - before he joined The Eagles and this album contains the Rocky Mountain Way track which is a classic. Fully recommend this album."

ol' nuff n' den sum | the Virginia coast, USA | 11/01/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Smoker You Drink, The Player You Get (1973), Joe Walsh's second solo album, includes two rock classics, Rocky Mountain Way and Meadows. Both include plenty of great guitar, Joe's wry wit, and fine vocal performances. Rocky Mountain Way made famous the "talk box", which would later be used by Peter Frampton on his blockbuster, Frampton Comes Alive. The tune is Joe's signature song, and his most popular recording. It's political/anti-political message begins with:

Spent the last year
Rocky Mountain Way
Couldn't get much higher
Out to pasture
Think it's safe to say
Time to open fire

Meadows has an autumnal theme, a great rhythm guitar riff, and Joe just being his unpretentious and charming self.

Can't help but feel uncertain
Knowing which way to turn
They want to raise the curtain
And you're holding the words to learn

Wolf is a somber minor-key reflection in the tradition of his James Gang composition Ashes, the Rain, and I. Midnite Moodies is a jazzy instrumental that features flute expressions from Joe Vitale. This is not a perfect album, but it's very good, and The Smoker You Drink, The Player You Get is essential for Joe Walsh fans. It's one of his best.
