The James Gang's third and most sumptuous album. Yes, its true - if you want guitar histrionics you're better off with "Yer Album". If you want psychedelia, check out sophomore effort "James Gang Rides Again". But if you want simple, classic '70s West Coast rock - this is the place to come. As well as rock staple "Walk Away" you also get funky instrumental "Yadig?", Joe Walsh's beautiful "It's All The Same", and the Eagles-esque "Midnight Man". But the band save the best for last. The final two songs on this album, "White Man / Black Man" and "Live My Life Again" are epic flights of fancy: very much of their time, yet somehow timeless. This is an album every fan of Seventies rock really should own.

The James Gang really hit it off with this album. I first had James Gang Thirds on a cassette that I played in my red Javelin while serving in the U.S.Army. I lost it somewhere as time passed on. It really brought back great memories of rock groups that put everything in their music. Most people would appreciate the stile of the James Gang. Yes, they are a little different than most rockers but I believe they never got their stardom that they really deserved.

I was absolutely shocked to see someone give this album a two-star review. Shocked and scandalized! Because this is my absolute favorite of all my James Gang and Joe Walsh albums! I think this reviewer was just confused due to the difference between the single (Walk Away) and the rest of the material, which is of a more "ballady" nature. This is not a hard-rocking album. It's just an album that you will want to listen to over and over again. Yadig? is an extremely groovy instrumental jazz piece. Things I Could Be's guitar riff will pull you in from the start. Dreamin' In The Country is a charming, easygoing, very catchy melody. You won't be able to get Midnight Man's guitar hook out of your mind. Some have criticized White Man/Black Man for being too preachy, but this is something that needs to be said as often as possible by as many people as possible, and I think Dale Peters said it well. Every song on here is great, but I think It's All The Same, with its majestic guitars and irresistable horn section, is my favorite. Five stars!

A lot of memories lie with the notes of this cd. Since I had it on an 8-track in the early '70s, I was very excited when I found it was still being published. I have listened to it several times and the quality is exceptional. Joe Walsh's guitar licks are nothing less that great. I am especially crazy about "White Man/Black Man". Walsh's riffs and mileage up and down the neck of that guitar crank me up and send me back to some of the best memories I have had as a young man during this era. If anyone doesn't like this album, he isn't a rocker or classic rock lover. Two stars??? That guy must not be taking his meds. I feel this album's songs are some of the best offered in this genre of music. There is a wide variety of song stylizations in it because most all of the songs are different, from blues rock to jazz to country and others in between. This is an album to be enjoyed and left to someone in your Last Will and Testament.

If you love Joe Walsh, and I do, then you'll want this record, his final studio album with James Gang. The band were never the same again, despite the injection of great guitarists such as Tommy Bolin and Domenic Troiano. Walsh, of course, has made a handful of great solo records as well as three Eagles records. He clearly came out the winner in the split with The Gang. Get "Thirds" if you want a taste of what might have been.

This is definitely the best JAMES GANG album of all the 4 albums with JOE WALSH remastered on cd because JIM FOX and DALE PETERS who are also multi-instrumentalists like JOE also sing 1 or 2 songs on this album. Even though WALK AWAY and MIDNIGHT MAN are memorable radio classics, my favorite song is definitely JIM FOX'S "THINGS I COULD BE" with his soulful vocals and organ riffs, JOE's guitar riffs, and DALE'S bass guitar riffs that give this song that excellent psychodelic/blues/rock feeling. When I first heard this song, I remembered how my oldest brother used to have this record from the early 1970s. Plus, I also love DALE PETERS' "DREAMING IN THE COUNTRY," featuring his calm vocals, JOE acoustic, electric FENDER TELECASTER, and pedal steel guitar playing, and JIM'S track piano, and DALE'S "WHITE MAN/BLACK MAN featuring JOE'S piano and guitar riffs and the females gospel singers. DALE had the best singing voice in the band besides a whole lot better sounding bass guitar than TOM KRISS. I love JIM'S LIVE MY LIFE AGAIN with with his track piano playing and excellent vocals and guitar by JOE. Plus, JOE'S "IT'S ALL THE SAME" and "AGAIN" with the orchestra and horn section that accompanied JOE'S singing, piano, and 12 string acoustic guitar playing reminds me of AMERICA'S commercial sounding songs from the mid 1970s, and YADIG is an excellent instrumental by the band with JIM'S drumming and vibe playing, DALE'S string bass playing, and JOE'S FENDER RHODES piano and guitar playing. I wish there would have been more JAMES GANG albums that followed the style of this one with JIM and DALE singing 1 or 2 songs from the album I was so greatful that I ordered these from CDNOW when I saw that MCA RECORDS remastered these albums, that were originally release on ABC RECORDS. Additionally the full liner notes, photos, and interviews with the band members are a bonus too.
