Happy Birthday "So What"!

My fav on here is definitely TTS. And I love All Night Laundry Mat Blues, as cheesy as it is.

Sorry I'm a day late, but ...

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY SO WHAT!!!

I'm gonna put this one in the CD player this week. In many cases, these anniversary dates for these albums are the only times I get a chance to listen to them. I think, at this point, this is tied with Analog Man as my favorite Joe solo album. I go back and forth between the two.

When did the album come out. I saw 1974 and I also saw 1975.

I could have sworn it was 1974 but JWO has it as 1975 (I thought Smoker was 1975 but JWO has it as 1973).

All Music Guide has it as 1975, but when I got up and looked at the CD, it said 1974. I'll change it.

FP, Smoker is definitely 1973, as I checked that while I was at it.

Wikipedia had 1974 and I know they are not right sometimes. When was that special when Glenn and the two Dons join Joe on HMTTN? Joe join in '75 and that special was before he join the band right?

So What is very dear to me. The first album I bought. It's all I listened to for several months.

I worked out that if I left the arm open on my record player, I could get the last track, Song For Emma, to play over and over again.

At first, I really didn't like the Eagles backing vocals on it but I loved the Walsh/Henley co-write Falling Down.

Those early Walsh albums had fabulous Joe versions of all types of music like folk, Jazz, Blues, Classical, Gospel etc. and especially Rock. He's been a lot less adventurous since he joined the Eagles a year after this album was released

Produced by John Stronach rather than Bill Szymczyk (except Song For Emma. He needed someone very close for the song about his daughter dying). It's about my 4th or 5th favourite Walsh album.

How come Time Out turns up on the following You Can't Argue With A Sick Mind live album but isn't on the video that the album comes from?

The million dollar question. I suspect it was because of the drug references in the song. An Australian mega fan claims he has a copy of it on video but to be perfectly honest, unless I see it, it doesn't exist.

So What? is indeed '74.

It's funny to hear So What? called an early album because I think of the James Gang as his early work!

Also to shun above: Joe filmed his DKRC at the end of Nov. '75 & it aired Jan. '76. I've been told that Joe (& the others) already knew he was an Eagle at the time of filming.
