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 Outstanding Collection July 29, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I've been a James Gang fan since the early 70s, and I still think Joe Walsh's work in that group rivals anything he's ever done on his own or with the Eagles. "Walk Away," "Funk #49," "Midnight Man," and "The Bomber" are all classics to me. Walsh, of course, has always been the consummate rock guitarist, and Jim Fox, with all his jazz technique, was one of the best rock drummers ever.
"The Bomber," a medley consisting of "Closet Queen" (the lyrics of which describe a nightmarish situation for a teenage boy) and "Cast Your Fate to the Wind," used to have an intervening quotation from "Bolero," which explains the "Bolero" beat behind "Cast Your Fate to the Wind." I bring it up because "Bolero" ended with some great guitar chords that made an extremely effective lead-in to "Cast Your Fate to the Wind." Why "Bolero" was removed from the me! dley in later pressings of "The Bomber" is something I can't understand, but anyone familiar with the tune will know what I'm talking about.
However, my favorite James Gang song will always be "Tend My Garden," with its lovely organ part, bouncy guitar rhythms (which later heavily influenced Boston in "More Than a Feeling"), and emotional guitar solo. For years it was my favorite song, and it's still greatly appealing to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great James Gang Collection December 9, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
15 GREATEST HITS (my copy says 16 GREATEST HITS) is a great anthology of the best moments by one of the premier American hard rock acts of the 70s. It opens with the one-two punch of "Walk Away" and "Funk #49", and then moves on to the epic rock suite "The Bomber", before moving through a series of diverse rockers and ballads that you never quite get to the bottom of. If you get this and THE JAMES GANG RIDES AGAIN, you have the essential James Gang library.

4.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THOSE "SEMINAL ENTRIES" July 2, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Advance apologia for the "seedy" summary; James Gang had however been hailed by critics as a forerunner of what rock would become in the decade to follow. Pre-cogniscent man! The Eagles became mega stars, and these early jams persevere as evidence to the greatness that lay ahead (more misogyny?). "Walk Away" remains a touchstone work of classic rock.
