HAPPY 35th ANNIVERSARY SO WHAT!!!

I had run some errands this evening so I had a chance to listen to the CD in my car to celebrate. I also think this is one of my favorite of Joe's solo albums. My favorites are County Fair, Welcome To the Club, Help Me Thru the Night, and Turn To Stone (this is one of my very favorite Joe solo songs).

Thought I'd go ahead and post the front cover of the album just for grins.

Such a contemplative Joe shown there. This is another album/8-track/casette/cd evolution that I've always had in my collection. This was in the midst of one of the most creative times for Joe from James Gang Live, Barnstorm, Smoker, So What and Sick Mind during such a difficult time in his personal life. Reachin' deep and diggin in to survive, the suffering artist phenomenon I guess. I'd challenge any group or artist to be compared to this level of creativity and quality of output over 5 albums in a row. I love every song on here, Turn to Stone in any of its variations is one of my favorites, especially live.

No disrespect to Joe, but that album cover always made me think Joe was trying to stifle a burp.

I'm gonna pop this in the car CD player to celebrate when I go out this afternoon. This is among my favorites of Joe's albums. I'll rank the songs later. I think I already know the order, but I'll refresh my memory to make sure.

This is a couple days late, but I wanted to say Happy Anniversary to "So What"! This one is definitely in my top three favorite Walsh albums. And I know some people may disagree, but I just love this album cover. I've got it hanging up in my room

Well - I am finally remembering to post my favs list for this album. First of all, I think this is a very good, underrated album. I really like all of the songs and lyrically, they are very introspective compared to some of Joe's other work (well - except for All Night Laundry Mat Blues ). I went ahead and combined Falling Down and Pavanne like the rest of you, although to me these are two indivdual songs. My CD also has them listed separately. Anyway, unlike the rest of you, Help Me Thru the Night is not my favorite or even second favorite song on the album. That honor goes to the rockin' Time Out - love that song! So, here goes ...

1. Turn to Stone
2. Time Out
3. Help Me Thru the Night
4. Welcome to the Club
5. Falling Down/Pavanne
6. County Fair
7. Song for Emma
8. All Night Laundry Mat Blues
