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 Forget The Eagles For A Minute...This is 1969-1971 October 12, 2005
By JG
Format:Audio CD
The James Gang were midwest rockers and this collection is a great play and way to them featuring their famous singles and solid selection of material from their early albums with wonderful historical track and song notes from their producer (who also played a large hand with that great other USA band,J.Geils Band. Funny how Geils were blues and funky while the James Gang were rockers and more folkie,anyway..)

This is THE Joe Walsh period Collection.

Spent a few hours with this CD yesterday and it does not dissapoint and plays very well straight through basically gathering great songs from the Yer Album,James Gang Rides Again`Thirds,and their Live Album..there are also a couple of tracks from the soundtrack they scored.

Their clever lyrics,hard rocking guitar sound,experimental studio soundscapes of the time, were still always a form of melodic rock with that raspy voiced Walsh certainly unmistakable in their uniqueness.They should be taken seriously like the groups The Band,Love,Steppenwolf as musicians that stood out from the crowd.

Their 1960's posturing always came off sincere because they were a bunch of great players for their brief stay in their original lineup..You may find yourself checking out all their earlier faithfully restored re-releases mentioned above with great sound and notes as well.All this coming in just a couple of short years..

5.0 out of 5 stars James Gang Greatest Hits - Cleveland Rocks! May 29, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Who was the best American power trio of the 1960's? After listening to this CD, you'd have to rank The James Gang at the top of the list and perhaps even rename them The Jimmy Fox Experience! Undoubtedly one of the great American percussionists and a musical protege of the jazz saxaphonist Weasel Parker, Fox began professionally in his teens with The Outsiders ("Time Won't Let Me") and then decided to form his own band. Over the years the band went through many personnel changes, but Fox remained the constant and the group was powered by a series of ace lead guitarists. The first was Glenn Schwartz, a tremendous player rooted in the blues who went on to Pacific Gas & Electric. The original bassist was Tom Kriss, who went on to a series of meaningless jobs at very low wages. Taking Schwartz's place was the inimitable Joe Walsh and it is this version of The James Gang with Dale Peters on bass that roared out of Cleveland to national and international acclaim. All of the cuts on this CD are from the Fox-Walsh-Peters years. Their two biggest hits -"Funk #49" and "Walk Away" - are here along with a couple studio rarities and some powerful live cuts and the great news is that every tune here still holds up after 30 plus years. Talk about your grand funk - The James Gang blew the roof completely off the Midwest! Spend your money on this one!

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Effective as an Album January 26, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I don't really like greatest hits packages, but this one does a nice job summarizes the first few albums that had Joe Walsh onboard. Putting aside the radio hits, this is a surprisingly effective and cohesive look at a creative rock trio in the late 60s and early 70s. I especially like the slower songs, such as "Take a Look Around," which features plaintive singing, organ work, and sounds a lot like very early Todd Rundgren. "Ashes the Rain and I" is another quieter song that really works.

But the highlight is clearly "Bomber," which hits you over the head with multiphased songs, changes, and sequences, an epic tune that leaves you blissfully satisfied and ready for that final toke before you go to bed.....

3.0 out of 5 stars If you say so, part three January 18, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Look, it's like this: the Zachariah movie soundtrack cuts are for completists only. The live cuts jar the ambience and really don't give it up. "Lost Woman" and "Bluebird" are not included and truly do belong. I know it is rare that a "Greatest Hits" will satisfy all listeners, but these changes would have fulfilled expectations (although I must agree that post Walsh James Gang should be on another disc). Whatever happened to Tom Kriss? I don't know of anyone but Jack Bruce that could play it with such energy in the power trio format. And I've got to argue with the reviewer that holds Jim Fox in such low esteem ... Fox was (is?) more than just a drummer: he added quite a bit of color into the mix and was precise and tight. Do yourself a favor: skip this, and spend the money for "Yer Album" and then "Thirds"; if that doesn't hold ya, go ahead and round it out with "Rides Again". You'll be glad you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars The American Cream? February 19, 2001
Format:Audio CD
For all of his success as a solo artist and with the Eagles, In my opinion Joe Walsh never regained the creativity (or the powerhouse rhythm section)he had with here the James Gang. If they'd had more support from their record label (ABC Records-you should've stuck with tv guys!) they easily could've picked up where Cream left off in the Jammin'Power Trio sweepstakes, and even made Led Zeppelin look over their shoulders. This album collected everything I remembered ("Walk Away"-still kicks!)and some new Gems that I'd never heard before ("Funk #48, "Laguna Salada", the COMPLETE "The Bomber" medley). If you love dirty, distorted guitar that sounds better the louder you play it, this is "Yer Album"! Crank it up!
