    On a huge Joe Walsh kick lately. Been listening and enjoying his list of 4-star albums released 1969-1981:

    Yer Blues
    James Gang Rides Again
    The Smoker You Drink, The Player You Get
    So What
    But Seriously
    There Goes The Neighborhood

    This is my favorite track. What's yours?

    "Tend My Garden".
    I wonder if this was written about a certain individual.

    Perhaps you can list the 24 most likely songs,
    #25 is “Other Song - please explain”

    That’s how some other polls are set up here.
    A poll easily assesses a “favorite”.

    Unless your preference here leans more towards general discussion.

    (However, a poll wouldn’t exclude that, either.)

    So many great ones....but for solo Joe Walsh I always think of this one:

    Probably County Fair if I had to pick one song.

    My favourite solo of his is on White Man, Black Man.

    Back in 1972 I worked at Shakeys. We would all get off work after 2:00 a.m. and go to the local XXX Rootbeer place and play that from the jukebox every time.

    My fave as well. That song should be an AOR staple (maybe it used to be?) but I had never heard it until I got a Joe Walsh compilation in the 2000s. That riff is just unstoppable!!! Edit: also this song reminds me a lot of "Good Times, Bad Times"
