The Best Of The James Gang (Pre-Order)
The 10 Best Songs From The Acclaimed Joe Walsh-Led Trio
Mastered By Kevin Gray At Cohearent Audio From The Original Analog Tape
Plating And 200-Gram Pressing By Quality Record Pressings!
Gatefold Tip-On Jacket By Stoughton Printing
The 10 best songs from 1969's Yer' Album, 1970's Rides Again and 1971's Thirds. The James Gang, formed in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1966, may be best known as the band that was first to feature guitarist/vocalist Joe Walsh before his rise to stardom as a solo musician and a member of the Eagles.
The James Gang performed with a stylistic versatility, hard-rocking edge and ultra-sharp musicianship. Their power-trio template has never sounded fiercer than on this Analogue Productions 200-gram reissue. Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio, pressed at Quality Record Pressings - makers of the world's finest-sounding LPs - and packaged in a tip-on heavyweight jacket from Stoughton Printing, this sterling reissue looks as great as it sounds.
You'll hear James Gang favorites including the FM radio staple Funk #49, - kick-started by the outspoken declaration I sleep all day, out all night/I know where you're goin' - the sexual thrust of the head-bobbing Woman, and proto-metal slash of the multi-part The Bomber. The rest of the track list is just as steeped in psychedelic-and-blues-leaning discourse. Midnight Man, Stop, Yadig? Take A Look Around, Funk #48, Walk Away and the Jack Nitzsche-orchestrated Ashes the Rain and I are rounded out by Walsh's Echoplex-equipped slide guitar, and his trio-mates, band founder Jim Fox on drums, piano and vocals, and bassist Tom Kriss, later replaced by Dale Peters.
The James Gang burning on stage with the audience getting higher and higher. Listen - this is American music - strong, inventive and clean.

Analog ManGrammy Award winning rock and roll legend Joe Walsh returns with the Fantasy Records/Concord release Analog Man, his first solo album in two decades! Analog Man is both modern and timelessly soulful, packed with Walsh's beloved wit, charm and chops, all encompassed by an incredibly raw and intimate sound.
Features Walsh's amusing take on the 21st century in the title track and Lucky That Way which boasts a guest appearance by Ringo Starr. The 10-track album was co-produced by Jeff Lynne with Tommy Lee James co-writing some of the songs. It's been 20 years and I have a lot to say, said Walsh. These songs come from the heart.
Walsh, best known for his powerful guitar lick, joined the Eagles in 1976 and is credited for bringing a harder rock sound to the band with the acclaimed Hotel California, The Long Run and Eagles Live. A singer/songwriter and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Walsh has entertained for more than four decades, not only as a solo artist, but as a part of admired acts like The James Gang and Barnstorm. Fitting to a true Analog Man, the release is pressed on audiophile quality 180g vinyl with a download card.1. Analog Man

Where I've Been"I think this is the best work we've ever done," explains JD & The Straight Shot founder and frontman Jim Dolan of the band's latest release, Where I've Been. "I'm so proud of the music that my band and I have put together. I believe in this album."
Produced by Joe Walsh, Where I've Been features several breakthrough singles including "Governor's Song," which challenges some of today's most well-known political figures; "Under That Hood," a transformative single that tells the tragic story of Trayvon Martin; and "Hard to Find," which will be featured in the highly-anticipated film, St. Vincent, starring Bill Murray and Melissa McCarthy.
Dolan's day gig is Cablevision Systems CEO and Executive Chairman of Madison Square Garden, where he also oversees New York sports teams such as the Knicks and the Rangers. Music is his passion.
"I needed something in my life where I felt like I was actually creating," says Dolan. "Most of what I do as an executive is orchestrate. I don't actually set up cable and I don't really shoot hoops," he says, laughing. "Music is something I've played since I was a kid. It's me purely expressing myself."
JD & The Straight Shot's creative nucleus is Dolan and guitarist Marc Copely (B.B. King), who pen all the band's music and lyrics. Instrumentally indispensable is guitarist Aidan Dolan; keyboardist Brian Mitchell (Bob Dylan, Levon Helm); and drummer Joe Magistro (The Black Crowes). Also part of the band are some of pop music's finest session players, bassist Zev Katz (Aretha Franklin, Elton John), and violinist Erin Slaver (Rod Stewart, Trace Adkins, Martina McBride).
Dolan started JD & The Straight Shot in 2000. The band has recorded four previous albums: Midnight Run (2012), Can't Make Tears (2011), Right On Time (2008), and Nothing To Hide (2005) - as well as an EP, Daily News Blues (2010).
The band's style is steeped in the quiet fire of Americana, with distinctive elements of the blues and mystical, rustic, New Orleans-flavored roots music - topped off with a dash of the classic rock of Dolan's youth.
"I grew up on bands like the Allman Brothers," says Dolan. "We played those records until the grooves wore right off of them."
JD & The Straight Shot has been covered by The New York Times, Billboard, and New York Magazine, among other publications, and performed on "Good Day New York." Their song "Can't Make Tears" is the theme song for AMC's TV show Hell on Wheels, and their music has been featured in many films, including the critically acclaimed August: Osage County.
The group has opened for the Eagles on several tours, including the current "History of the Eagles" tour, the "Summer 2010" tour, and the band's stadium tour with the Dixie Chicks and Keith Urban. JD & The Straight Shot has also opened up for both Joe Walsh and Don Henley's solo tours, the James Gang reunion tour, and performed at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Austin City Limits.1.
