The first album is Riding With The King, the 2000 album that united B.B. King and Eric Clapton, which lead it to the top of Billboard’s Blues Album chart and sold over 2,000,000 copies. The album also features contributions from Jimmie Vaughan, Joe Sample, Steve Gadd, Nathan East, and Andy Fairweather Low, along with guitarist Doyle Bramhall II, who also brings in his wife Susannah Melvoin and her sister, Wendy Melvoin.
Joe Walsh’s So What was his third solo album released in 1974, recorded after leaving James Gang and a year or so before he joined The Eagles. Perhaps with guests appearances from Don Henley, Glenn Frey, and Randy Meisner, the album could be considered his audition tape of sorts. It’s the album that features “Welcome To The Club” and “Turn To Stone”.
Audio Fidelity are ready to release another remaster so get ready for new hybrid SACD’s when they’re released on July 24th.
