As an old "redhead" fan, it gives me much pleasure to give this CD 5 stars. Though I LOVE Hagar's efforts with Chickenfoot (great stuff), his last two solo efforts have left me a tad flat. Livin' It Up is a neat "concept" CD about this lifestyle he's embraced, but lacks any real "teeth" or "punch". The power you've come to expect from the Red Rocker. And CUF was a travesty. A shame too, because there are at least three tracks on there that are great, but the rest of the CD was very disappointing...juvenile even.

Sammy Hagar & Friends is the best collection he's put together, solo-wise, in some time. Probably have to go tack to Ten 13 (though I also really enjoyed the very underated Not 4 Sale). This collection is smart, slick and intelligent. The songs are the most expansive and varied he's done in regards to stretching his musical talents and definately draw upon all 4+ decades of experience the Red Rocker has to offer.

01. Winding Down (with Taj Mahal) - Is incredible and soulful. Rocks without even really "rocking". One of the best on the CD. 5 stars
02. Not Going Down (with Bill Church & Denny Carmassi) - Great, powerful, rock and roll with solid lyrics and awesome vocals. 5 stars
03. Personal Jesus (with Neal Schon, Michael Anthony & Chad Smith) - Wonderful rework and the addition of the gosple inspired backup vocals singing "Jesus" give the song a wonderfully spiritual and souful feel. 4 stars
04. Father Sun (with Denny Carmassi & Aaron Hagar) - Man, not even sure where to start on this one. Very cool sounding song, musically, with wonderfully fun and clever lyrics and a powerful chorus. And he's singing about the sun...the sun!? It's awesome! 4 stars.

Sammy Hagar has been a presence on the rock scene for more than three decades, and his distinct vocals epitomize the whiskey-tinged blues rock sound that have made classics out of his early hits both solo (i.e. “I Can’t Drive 55”) and during his tumultuous, yet successful tenure with Van Halen in the 80's and 90's.

Since breaking ties with Van Halen, Hagar has reestablished himself as a high energy solo artist, while taking the occasional foray into forming other groups, most notably the band Chickenfoot, which featured the blazing talent of guitarist Joe Satriani, along with former Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony and Red Hot Chili Pepper drummer Chad Smith. All three musicians join Hagar on his latest project along with a slew of his friends on his first collaborations album, the new titled, “Sammy Hagar & Friends.”

The 10-song set is a combination of covers and original songs, but all are given Hagar’s signature style. New arrangements of Depeche Mode’s “Personal Jesus” (featuring Journey’s Neal Schon on Guitar, along with Anthony and Smith), Bob Seger’s “Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man,” and Jimmy Buffett’s “Margaritaville” (with country superstar Toby Keith joining Hagar on vocals) are mixed in with fresh new rockers, “Bad on Fords and Chevrolets” (written with and featuring Ronnie Dunn), “Knockdown Dragout” (with Kid Rock), and the blues tune, “Winding Down” (with Taj Mahal). A studio take of the Freddie King classic, “Goin’ Down,” concludes the mainstream release, with the Deluxe Edition containing a live performance of the Montrose tune, “Space Station #5,” from the Ronnie Montrose Tribute Concert taped last year in San Francisco.

At only 36 minutes, the album is over before you know it, but what is here is a fun visit from the life of the party, and we hope he comes around again soon.

I downloaded the MP3 version and listened to it twice today. This is a fun album. I am a pretty big Sammy fan and what I like about him is he seems like he could jam with just about anyone. So the Sammy Hagar and Friends name is fitting. I pretty much like all the songs. Most of them are covers with guest musicians and that is what makes it fun. Sammy still has lead vocals on just about all the songs so it has his signature vocal touch.

About my only complaint was it seems a bit short even with the two live tracks thrown in on the last 2 songs. I think running time is about 40 minutes. For that reason I give it 4 and not 5 stars. I would have liked a few more studio tracks, although the live tracks are killer!

Update: After a few more listens this CD kicks it so I am bumping it to 5 stars. The Space Station #5 live track features a killer solo by Satriani. Absolutely love it.

Great effort with Sammy Hagar & Friends. I have been waiting for this to release for quite some time. I ordered it from the website Redrocker.com and did the Pre-order to get the bonus tracks. I have been a consistent fan of Sammy's work from Montrose to present time. This release defines his whole journey and goes hand in hand with his new tour the Four Decades of Rock, which I went to. He strays away from his island party fun (which I loved by the way) and picks up on more duties of playing guitar during the tour and shows that he is more than just a great vocalist.
On this release he does it all.
Not Going Down is a great track done with the boys of Montrose, which I would love to hear a lot more of. Which I kind of get with the bonus tracks for the Pre-order. There are two live tracks from the Ronnie Montrose tribute show where Joe Satriani sits in for Ronnie. The tracks are Bad Motor Scooter and Space Station # 5. Would love to hear these guys do more studio stuff.
Other tracks that I enjoy are Rambling Gambling Man. Mona does a great job of holding down that bass groove.
Margaritaville, with the help of Toby Keith. They put a great and daring spin on this.
All We Need is an Island which is done with Nancy Wilson. Takes you to that island.
Going Down is a great cover done in one take in the studio and captures all the magic with Neal Schon.
The one track that throws me off is Personal Jesus, but is still a good listen. Just does not seem like it belongs. Would have rather heard this replaced by another song with the boys of Montrose. Besides that, this is a solid effort and well worth the wait.. So far I just have the digital download. Can't wait to get the package in the mail with the shirt, cd and DVD.
