Editorial Reviews

The 20th Century Masters series is the best-selling single-artist line in music history and is being re-released by Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) in its ground-breaking, environmentally-friendly packaging format. A first for the music industry, the standard package (both sleeve and tray) will be completely paper-recyclable, continuing the company's long-standing commitment to being "green."

To further reduce the amount of paper in the Eco-Pack, the CD booklet will no longer be offered. Official liner notes are easily accessible on the Internet at http://www.ilovethatsong.com/green.

UMe is the first North American music company to replace the traditional jewel case with recycled paperboard sleeves and the plastic tray with trays made from PaperFoam®, a new packaging technology from Shorewood Packaging, a business of International Paper, that is paper-recyclable and biodegradable. Shorewood Packaging is the first North American packaging supplier to produce disc trays from PaperFoam®.

Okay, here's the scenario: The board of directors at MCA are huddled in some smoke-filled room. The question is how can we use the company's existing music catalog and make some money off the new millennium. One executive suggests taking the artists' existing greatest hits releases and add extra songs to included album tracks, minor chart hits, and singles since the album's original release so the new CD will have 75 minutes of music. Another executive says why not take the existing greatest hits releases and remove four or five songs and call it the Millennium Collection? (Guess which executive got the promotion.)
This nearly fifty-minute snapshot of Joe Walsh's career beginning with his days with The James Gang is more generous than most. And while it's hard to argue with the addition of "Here We Go" from 1972's Barnstorm and "County Fair" from 1974's So What, this release is no match for 1997's Greatest Hits, which not only inlcudes Walsh's two hits of the Eighties ("All Night Long" and "A Life Of Illusion"), it includes his signature song "Life's Been Good." And at fifteen tracks, the choice becomes a no-brainer.

This is really just a slightly beefed up re-issue of the 1978 "Best of Joe Walsh". As such it does a very good job of summarizing Walsh's early carrier. It's marketed as a budget priced CD and I guess you do save... off the definitive 1997 release of "Greatest Hits: Little Did He Know". Unfortunately, what you give up is a lot! Classics like "All Night Long", "Life of Illusion", "Average Ordinary Guy" and the unforgivable exclusion "Life's been good".
If this is going to be the only Joe Walsh CD you own, my advice is simple: Spend the extra... and get "Greatest Hits: Little Did He Know". You get 15 songs vs. 10 and you can take comfort in the fact that you will have the only Joe Walsh CD most people ever need to own.

I just love getting a CD with great music that costs less than the postage to send it! While I would like to own 'Life of Illusion' in addition to some of the thoroughly wonderful tracks laid down here, a copy of Walsh's other compilation, 'Little Did He Know', would have cost me three times as much, and frankly I'm not that absorbed in a lot of Joe's lesser accomplishments to justify the expense.
That being said, I've always been a sucker for Walsh's guitar playing. There is nothing in Walsh's vocal delivery to set him apart, except to say that it seems well suited to the mood and lyrical content of his music (indeed, it is difficult to imagine other artists covering much of his music, for whatever reason, though Stephen Stills pounded out a convincing 'Rocky Mountain Way' on a live release). He has, however, composed and recorded some of the finest guitar riffs imaginable, easily on a par with anything done by Eric Clapton, The Beatles, even, dare I say it... Jimi Hendrix. Though few in number, those recordings possess massive appeal and staying power.
Walsh's best work was produced in the very late 1960's and early 1970's, heading up the James Gang and Barnstorm, and this era serves as the focus for this 10 track mini resource library. The disc opens with THE 3 essential (tha-tha-tha-tha- that's all folks) James Gang recordings, 'Walk Away', 'Funk #49', and 'Midnight Man'. While 'Midnight Man' is the closest the Gang ever got to a serenade, and a fine serenade at that, 'Walk Away' and 'Funk #49" are studies in hard rock artistry. The songs are reminiscent of the sonic explosion exemplified in two compositons by Walsh's contemporaries Ray Davies and The Kinks, 'All Day and All of the Night' and 'You Really Got Me'.

Very nice career retrospective of Rock n' Roll artist Joe Walsh.

All the usual suspects are here, including many of his hits with the James Gang. This is a great buy for anyone just getting into Joe Walsh or the casual listener. My only gripe with this collection and for that matter ANY collection that currently exists for Joe, and there are many is that "I Can Play That Rock & Roll" from the "You Bought it, You Name It" album is not on any of them.

It was a modest hit when it came out in the 80's and I'm hard pressed to figure out why with all the numerous Joe Walsh greatest hits cds, that this particular song and hit is not on any of them. Strange ain't it. Oh well, this is the music buisness I suppose. Peace everyone.

Great collection for Joe's earlier work with prime examples of Walsh at his best. If the title of the album was more like the heading to this review, it would rate five stars... as it is titled, however (Millennium - Best of -), it loses a star for misleading listeners who may not be as familiar with his history. Many people are going to expect "Life's Been Good" and hits from his Eagle's and post-Eagles era. But - for $2.99 as a download - there's little room for complaint for the rocking good tunes this collection does present.

How can you call this The Best of Joe Walsh and not include Life's Been Good? According to Wikipedia, that song made it to number 12 in the Billboard hot 100 in the US and number 14 in the charts in the UK. There are some good songs on the album but a few I don't recognize and one of my favorites missing.
