Thirds by James Gang
Released: Apr 1971
Label: Geffen
No, it's not called "Seems to Me," it's called "Walk Away," and it's a supremely sweet example of early-'70s whiteboy boogie blues. The rubbery, hummable, oft-misnamed lead song off Thirds was James Gang's second radio hit ("Funk #49, from their previous album, was the first) and one of several highlights on this bell-bottomed, bleary-eyed classic. Joe Walsh's twangy vocals and slide guitar are loose and languid througout; the horns on "It's All the Same" set a new standard in orchestral cracker rock.
