Two big thumbs up for the first new solo release by Mr. Walsh in 20 years.  Analog Man has been spinning in the vehicle for two weeks now…it gets more contagious with each listen.  Fave tune of the cd is “Lucky That Way”!  Good stuff that  f’n classic radio should be playing daily.  Take a listen to the stream above, and you will agree with The Snob.  Ya gotta love this guy.  Here’s some more info…

Grammy Award winning rock and roll legend Joe Walsh returns with Analog Man, his first solo album in two decades to be released on June 5th, 2012 from Fantasy Records/Concord.  Analog Man is both modern and timelessly soulful, packed with Walsh’s beloved wit, charm and chops; it delivers an incredibly raw and intimate sound.

“It’s been 20 years and I have a lot to say,” said Walsh.  “These songs come from the heart.”  Walsh, best known for his powerful guitar licks, joined the Eagles in 1976 and is credited for bringing a harder rock sound to the band with the acclaimed Hotel California, The Long Run and Eagles Live.  A singer-songwriter and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Walsh has entertained for more than four decades, not only as a solo artist, but as part of admired bands like The James Gang and Barnstorm.

 As a self-proclaimed Analog Man, also the album name and title track, Walsh refers playfully to the new digital age; one in which he has adapted to, but notes in the song, “I am what I am – I’m an Analog Man.” Walsh developed the album over the last 10 years, drawing on personal experiences to breathe life into each track.  “I just really feel like it’s all come together and finally I feel like a complete person and a complete musician,” said Walsh.  “I think there is some confidence in there that I never had. That’s what I was hiding.”  Walsh credits his wife of four years, Marjorie, for encouraging him to be the man and artist he is today and fondly dedicates this album to her.  

 The 10-track album was produced by Jeff Lynne and Joe Walsh with Tommy Lee James co-writing some of the tracks.  “Lucky That Way,” one of Walsh’s favorites off the album, speaks to the extraordinary life he’s lived, even through the hurdles, and features Ringo Starr, his real life brother-in-law, on drums.  The song ironically serves as a mature sequel to Walsh’s famed “Life’s Been Good” and for Walsh, life is just that.

Ilicitronix Report:

Click here to go to Ilicitronix to check a big batch of “vocal only” tracks from some classic tunes.  The only problem is if the songs have long musical breaks between vocals it comes off as extended silence.  Always fascinating to hear what the vocal tracks sound like when you mix the instruments down completely.  Nice post!

The tunes…The Eagles “Hotel California”, Pat Benatar “Hit Me With Your Best Shot”, Paul McCartney & Wings “Band on The Run”, The Who “Won’t Get Fooled Again”, The Killers “Human”, Michael Jackson “Beat it”, Ozzy Osbourne “Mr. Crowley”, REM “The One I Love”, Coldplay “Shiver”, Blondie “One Way or Another”, The Clash “Should I Stay or Should I Go”, Tears For Fears “Shout”, The Beatles “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”, and A-Ha “Take On Me”
