Biography

Biography by Greg Prato

With the emergence of Cream and the Jimi Hendrix Experience during the late '60s, the path was cleared for other hard-rockin' "trios." Arguably, the finest to emerge from the subsequent American crop was the James Gang. Despite penning a few of classic rock radio's most enduring songs, the James Gang ultimately failed to deliver on their ... Read more in Amazon's James Gang Store

5.0 out of 5 stars JOIN IN ON THE GANG BANG March 4, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The James Gang got a lucky break when they hired Tommy Bolin to fill the guitar spot, not only did he come in with all of the albums songs already written but it gave The Gang an opportunity to work with one of the most gifted and talented guitarists ever. The James Gang Bang album is essentially a Tommy Bolin project album in all but name. Tommy brought the songs in from his prior band Energy, who were unable to get a recording contract, so this gave Tommy the chance to get those songs heard, albeit, through the James Gang. None of the other members of the Gang wrote for this album except singer Roy Kenner's accapella Rather Be Alone With You. All the rest are 100% Bolin and Energy songs. Kicking off this album is Standing In The Rain, a rocker suitable for James Gang. More great guitar songs follow like Must Be Love, Got No Time For Trouble and The Devil Is Singing Our Song. All beautiful mini masterpieces. Tommy does get a lead vocal shot on Alexis, an acoustic song which not only showcases Tommy's great guitar but his beautiful voice. All in all this is a must own for everyone rock and a far departure from the Joe Walsh era James Gang.

The James Gang did some regrouping after the loss of Joe Walsh to a solo career. They recruited Roy Kenner (Vocals) and Domenic Troiano (Guitar) to replace Walsh...and it became quicky apparent that while Kenner was a dynamic vocalist, Troiano's style didn't fit the Gang's sound. They apparently agreed, and picked up young Guitar phenom Tommy Bolin. I rushed home from the record store when this was released in '73, and was not disappointed. It's not only my favorite Gang album, it's one of my favorite Rock albums of all time. Great, well-crafted songs, great playing, very satisfying album. I couldn't recommend it higher...and judging by the fact that it is becoming recognized now as a Classic, I'm not alone in my sentiments. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tommy Bolin Reignites The James Gang April 11, 2008
Format:Audio CD
After guitarist-singer-songwriter Joe Walsh quit the James Gang in 1971, many people gave the band up for dead when replacement Domenic Troiano failed to create any real musical momentum within. Then along came guitarist-singer-songwriter Tommy Bolin, and the band was revitalized. This CD is easily the band's best since the Walsh years, with lots of great singing, playing, and songs. Those who only appreciate the James Gang's Walsh-era material would do well to check this CD out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bang Album has classical August 11, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The song Mystery is the most innovative song I have ever heard. It has the most wonderful classical piece. I love Rock music, but when it is so cleverly put together with acoustical and classical....it's fantastic. Be sure to listen to it on the album. It's truly a classic. The whole album is great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lost Classic Rides Again June 21, 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
After seeing Joe Walsh in concert recently I started thinking about which James Gang and Joe Walsh albums I had in my collection. Thinking back to when I attended graduate school I remember anticipating the Bang album as a second iteration of the original Gang. I was impressed then and even more impressed now. This is no "one hit wonder" album. All of the music is enjoyable. In the vein of "The Ashes, The Rain and I", "Mystery" carries on the Gang tradition of combining rock and classical. "Alexis" is fresh enough to have been done currently by Metallica. Bang is currently my morning commute album, a great way to start the day.

Note: Since writing this review I attended a James Gang reunion concert with the original band. We paid for VIP tickets and I won the raffle to play with the band during sound check. Fortunately my instrument was the cowbell and the song was Funk 49. Although initially terrified, I stood front and center next to Joe and had a life experience that I will never forget.

5.0 out of 5 stars Post-Walsh James Gang Rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! April 3, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
All I have to say is that the track "Standing in the Rain" is one of the most mind-blowin' songs of the era. Play it -- LOUDLY -- and your life will be changed. Mine was, and still is. R.I.P. Tommy Bolin (we miss you).
