Joe Walsh :: Barnstorm (1972)

Though the intention of Dunhill Records was to establish Walsh as a bonafide solo artist, Barnstorm operated as a highly collaborative entity, with Walsh, Vitale and Passarelli contributing tunes, swapping instruments and sharing vocals. The resulting record is a loosely thematic set that never struggles to hold itself together – a rare 70s rock LP that embodies all of the characteristics that make it of its time while transcending them all.
