Editorial Reviews

The band that introduced the world to Joe Walsh scored their biggest strike with this 1970 hard-rock classic. Includes Funk #49 .

4.0 out of 5 stars Walsh Rides On December 6, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Joe Walsh is one of the most underappreciated musicians in rock music. Whether it be his work with The James Gang, The Eagles or solo work, he consistently makes quality and inspiring rock music. He may have been at his best with this Ohio-based band and Rides On is their finest effort. The album kicks off with a rock classic, the manic "Funk #49" which has a great riff. "The Bomber" shows off Mr. Walsh's guitar prowess with some wicked slide work. The first five tracks are classic arena rock, but the band shows there diversity with the second five tracks that form a song suite of sorts. They are more in the country-rock vein and show a softer side as opposed to the heaviness of the first five tracks. The James Gang never achieved the commercial success they deserved, but Rides Again is a great place to start to get an idea of the quality of this group.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Rock and Roll July 29, 2002
Format:Audio CD
The Joe Walsh led James Gang may be the most unknown group in rock and roll... I say that because most people think 'Funk #49' and 'Walk Away' are JOE WALSH songs. Their loss...
This album is definately one of the best rock and roll albums ever from first note to last. 'Funk #49' leads into the playful 'Ashtonpark' to the bombast of 'Woman' and 'The Bomber'(oh, that last chord that just rings out for 15 seconds!). Then the "light"/ more acoustic side featuring 'Tend My Garden/ Garden Gate', 'There I Go gain', the working man's themed 'Thanks' ["Yes to the man above ya/ Hope you passed the test/ Nope to the man below ya/ Leave him with the rest"] and closing with the sadly beautiful 'Ashes, the Rain and I'.
My only gripe is the inclusion of the extended mix of 'The Bomber' INSTEAD of the original mix. Why not add the extended mix as a bonus track?
Other than that, the new remaster sounds fantastic and if you turn up you can feel Joe's guitar and Dale Peters' bass in all their sonic glory and enjoy Jim Fox's under appreciated drum work (especially on the quieter songs). Get one for the car AND one for the house.

5.0 out of 5 stars Guaranteed to ride again and again on your CD player! August 22, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This album represents the Joe Walsh incarnation of the James Gang at its artistic zenith. The band sails effortlessly through a breathtaking set that ranges from lovely, sparse acoustic folk and lush orchestration to no-holes barred crunching riff-rock. The newly remastered version also restores about a minute or so of the original extended Walsh guitar showcase that makes "The Bomber" such a memorable workout. For guitar afficiandos, this one song features just about every possibile demonstration of tonal and melodic expression a gifted player can communicate with minimal frills (just an Echoplex and a slide!).The set of connected songs on side 2 (if you've never had a vinyl copy, that's "Tend My Garden" through "Ashes The Rain & I") is comparable to the Beatles' groundbreaking "Abbey Road" suite. An excellent START on remastering the James Gang catalog...now, how about the Tommy Bolin era-- nudge nudge hint hint?

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bomber IS original and as intended October 26, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The reviewer from Euless Texas regrets that "The Bomber is the extended version instead of the original version", but in fact this IS the original version and I like it better with both Bolero and Cast Your Fate To The Wind quotes in place; the Bomber was shortened by removing the Bolero section after the first LP release because of a copyright dispute with the estate of Maurice Ravel, composer of Bolero. Thankfully, they were somehow apparently able to settle and restore the album to its originally intended state.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great example of metal and melody in early 70's rock December 29, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Unfortunately, when people think of the James Gang, they usually only think of Joe Walsh. In many ways, the James Gang was like America's version of The Yardbirds: an institution only known for launching the careers of great guitarists like Walsh and Tommy Bolin, but little of anything else about the group is remembered, such as the grounbreaking music that was produced and the musicianship within the band. And just as The Yardbirds were one of Britain's most underrated supergroups, The James Gang became one of America's most underrated supergroups, especially as each band's 'star' guitarist soared to higher highths.
Musically, together they were equal parts Led Zeppelin and Grand Funk Railroad (the transition from metal to funk like Grand Funk, and the transition from metal to folk like Zeppelin.) This particular album, "The James Gang Rides Again", of all their albums, best incorporates all those styles. And just as their first album was a statement of where they came from, this second album was a statement of where they wanted to go. Of course, this record contains some of their best known songs like "Funk 49" and "Woman", but for my money, the best track on here is "The Bomber.

The GANGS best as far as I am concerned
A friend of mine had the original album. As I recall, when the vinyl album got to the end of Side A, it would begin to skip repeating the phrase "turn me over." When it got to the end of side B, it would begin to skip again repeating the phrase "turn me over." I have... Read More

Say what?
I agree,the Eagles were a very "POP"ular band as they were headed nowhere fast until the arrival of Joe Walsh.As I have collected over a 1000 CD's I have yet bought an EAGLES CD with or without Walsh on it.Joe Walsh was a big part of American rock and roll and the RIDES AGAIN was a big... Read More
