Sometime in 1976 a friend of mine had the opportunity to attend a special live taping of "Eddie Money" for KQED television in a small area at San Francisco's Cow Palace. He asked me if I'd like to go see the taping with him.

"Eddie Who? Money What?" I asked.

Nope, we never went to that show! I think we decided that going to see a movie at the drive-in, which was practically next-door to the Cow Palace, with a couple of girls from school was a much better way of spending the evening.

Okay, I'm an idiot on both counts. We didn't get lucky at the drive-in with those girls...and we missed seeing Eddie Money perform before anyone knew who he was.

I remember hearing this debut album from Eddie Money for the first time. I was really blown away and remember liking it the very first time I listened all the way through. I was into much heavier stuff, but I also had/still have a soft spot for pop music disguising itself as "Heavy" rock. Money's albums aren't really "Heavy", but they do have a very hard edge and lot's of guitar work that could classify him, to some, as a "Heavy Rocker".

From his New York accented, sort-of-raspy, Cindy Brady-esque mouth movement style of singing, comes an unforgettable voice that till this day is a one of a kind. With the exception of maybe "Don't Worry", I feel that any of the tracks from this album could have been singles. If you like his 80's stuff, this may be a bit too...umm....RAW....for you. If you just want to hear a great rock record, then it'll be MONEY well spent.

This combined with his second effort, "Life for the Taking" is really all of the eddie Money I need. Anything after seemed to have been the record companies taking over and pushing the AOR bit for Eddie.

HAVING BOUGHT THE REMASTER (ROCK CANDY) OF THIS TITLE AND HAVING BEEN LET DOWN BY THE

SOUND QUALITY(MODERN LOUD REMASTERING)I DECIDED TO TRACK DOWN THE ORIGINAL US CD PRESSING.

AS WITH MOST FIRST OR EARLY CD PRESSINGS,IT SOUNDS MUCH MORE NATURAL WITH BETTER DYNAMICS

THAN THE REMASTER.THE SOUND OF EDDIE'S VOICE,THE BASS,THE DRUMS AND GUITAR JUST SOUND RIGHT.

I THINK THIS WAS EDDIE'S FIRST RELEASE AND ALONG WITH PLAYING FOR KEEPS(ORIGINAL COLUMBIA IST

US PRESSING CD)IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.AVOID THE REMASTER.

Eddie Money's self-titled debut album is a great piece of straight rock. Such songs as "Baby Hold On" and "Wanna Be A Rock And Roll Star" are among the songs that dominated AM radio in 1977. There are a couple of filler cuts here, but get this one, LIFE FOR THE TAKING, and NO CONTROL, and you have all the Eddie Money you really need.

Eddie Money's first and probably his best. Every song is good here. I wish he had been more consistent with later recordings. Although later individual songs were great, this would have to be his best record. It is classic rock from beginning to end. I don't get tired of listening to it.

Rock Candy did a great job re-mastering from the 24 track recordings. What I noticed was that I heard a lot of sounds that weren't there while I was wearing out my LP records.

The Left-Middle-Right channels are much more defined providing more depth and width to the audio (I still only have a top notch two channel setup). I cannot imagine how good it would sound with the newer 5.1 surround systems.

I purchased Life for the Taking and Playing for Keeps at the same time. No Control is not far behind. A casual fan might not want to pay the difference between the originally released recordings and Import but Eddie fans will.

After this outstanding debut, Eddie Money never made a recording that was as good or as consistent track to track. This album has really held up well over three decades and still holds a solid spot in the rotation. "Rock and roll the place" indeed!

Nice debut album, with some cuts that have held up well... The cover of Smokey's You've Really Got A Hold On Me is the real gem on this release for me!

28 year old Eddie Money produced a fine debut album. Eddie wanted to be a cop in NYC, but he ended up being a rock star instead. On this debut, #37 in 1977, Eddie took "Two Tickets To Paradise" to #22, it is still a classic rock staple, the piano rocker "You've Really Got A Hold On Me", a great album classic "Wanna Be A Rock N' Roll Star", some nice guitar on "So Good To Be In Love Again", the FM, AM hit "Baby Hold On", #11, the jammin' "Got to Get Another Girl" and a college favorite "Gamblin' Man". A very strong debut **** 1/2 overall. His second album "Life For The Taking" would appear less than a year later.
