Busting out of the box on their second album, the James Gang hit the dirt bucking and kicking with the muscular rocker Funk #49 which highlights the stellar guitar of Joe Walsh. Contemporaries like Clapton and Paige have nothing on this incarnation of The Bomber. Side two is a fibrous garden, laced with acoustic gems thoughtfully tended by Ashes the Rain and I.
James Gang Rides Again is some of Walsh’s finest work showcasing his writing, playing, and musical prowess. There is also some rock’in good “Cow Bell” here. Enjoy!
