I think OMR did the best they could, and I'd say this is the best version I've heard, but a high-resolution system will quickly expose its weaknesses.
But hey, that's not what this record is all about - it's the music! So grab a cold one or spark a dubie if you're into that sort of thing and ride LP) or is that, ride again with the James Gang! Side one of this album is one of the greatest in rock and roll history and is right up there with side one of Zep IV, etc. A masterpiece with Joe's finest axe work when he played with fire and aggression.
Side two is softer but still great sorta like Zep III was, LP). Essential for any rock collection and the Gangs best record.
It rocks, is inventive, and Joe Walsh is the guitar player! What more could you want? The James Gang is another one of those bands that should have been in the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame years ago, long before any 80's bands should have even been considered! Lordy did I LP) and now realize just how great the James Gang was.
As the liner notes state: made loud to be played loud. I had forgotten how good this album is. Walsh's creative guitar work on The Bomber, which contains Bolero not found on the vinyl version, is haunting.
Tend My garden, all the way to the final cut - Ashes the Rain and I - is delightful becoming almost symphonic. My daughter says the music is becoming popular again because of a TV series. I suspect "Rides Again" is best appreciated along with the earlier "Yer Album". I have liked this album since I first heard it in the first years of the 70's. Good hard driving Rock music of that era.
If you ever see or hear Joe interviewed you may not pick him as the guy behind this kind of Rock, but in his day he was just about the best rocker out there and kind of crazy out of control. He now reflects back on that lifestyle as a part of his life that defines his demeanor of today. Way slowed down, mentally as well. Thanks for giving yourself up for us Joe, I have really enjoyed you there in my life with me.
I give it 5 stars because there just isn't any thing better for its time or maybe anytime. I call this just great "raw" rock and roll. It is a must have in a remaster Bomber is great Great stuff, I think I might need to get more James Gang.
This album is just awesome. Mofi albums sound better. I will buy mofi when available. Rega never sounded so good. See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews. Ashes, The Rain And I Dull as dishwater cover art or not - I've loved this frigging album for over 40 years now - and this gorgeous Japanese reissue has only brought that passion to a boil yet again.
I wouldn't mind if it was anything new it isn't. And I love them all to bits. I've always thought The James Gang were a bit special and I wouldn't be alone in this. Funk No. Asshtonpark 3. Woman 4. Tend My Garden [Side 2] 6. Garden Gate 7. There I Go Again 8. Thanks 9. Both countries sported a gatefold sleeve - this 5" repro artwork facsimiles the first pressing of the American vinyl LP with the colour painting of the band on the inner gatefold and the "Bolero" credit in "The Bomber".
There's a page booklet that has lyrics, some text in Japanese and little else. This is pretty much par for the course for these Japanese releases. The SHM-CD format Super High Materials does not require a specific machine to play them on - they're simply a better form of disc created by JVC in to improve on the original CD format unchanged since it was first put out 30 years ago. The general idea is that the sound on the SHM-CD is more defined and to my ears they do seem to extract more nuances from the transfer.
Speaking of "The Bomber" - fans will know that after initial pressings of the album the 3-part song was reduced James Gang - James Gang Rides Again (Vinyl to 2-parts on subsequent pressings - losing the centre "Bolero" piece. So "The Bomber" went from minutes to roughly minutes. As this disc apes the American remaster - what you get is pressing No. Side 2 is perfect to me - the near six-minute "Tend My Garden" segues into the two-minute bluesy acoustic ditty that is "Garden Gate" - gorgeous playing and it sounds wonderful on this CD.
OK - you could argue that it's simpler to buy the CD for less than a fiver and be done with it - and if you want the cheaper option still with great sound - then that's the way to go.
But as a fan - if I think I can get a few more nanoseconds of sonic greatness out of this sucker - then I'm gonna be the financial sucker and buy that dinky Japanese repro with its new-fangled format thingy.
I have both versions - but I must confess that I play the SHM every time because of that extra detail and warmth. But this - "Yer Album" and "Thirds" all with Walsh have always tickled my funny bone. Fantastic stuff and worth the few extra quid Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. Not an album that hit me between the eyes when I first heard it, 'Rides Again' nevertheless has an intriguing quality that made me want to listen again.
There is so much going on here that you'd think the band would have needed a lot more than 35 minutes to do it in. This is an unusual but successful instrumental.
The 'Bolero' in the middle is an odd choice but the last part is superb. Although they're a rock trio, this is not like Cream. There's a lot more subtlety.
A rewarding album. Real music made for listening, not just modern background noice. Gets better every time. One person found this helpful. Brilliant cd of this amazing LP,loved the sound and packaging. Another good James Gang album but not quite as good as the first one. Load more international reviews. Great album. An album and a band unjustly forgotten. Crunching, funky rock n roll. Most listeners will recognise Funk 49; but there is a pleasant surprise in Ashes, the Rain and I.
I bought this as a vinyl album when it fiorst came out having listening to "the bomber" about 50 times on a flight from UK to Australia. One of the best rock and roll albumes ever made.
Joe Walsh is totally brilliant. Where's my free MP3 version? Led by future Eagle Joe Walsh, the James Gang establishes a power-trio template for all times on its sophomore album. Home to the top-down favorite "Funk 49," Rides Again sparks with a stylistic versatility, hard-rocking edge, and balladic vulnerability united by tight-knit LP).
The quartet's penchant for crunch-laden boogies and focused jamming pours out on the first half of the record before the band pulls its trick bag out on the second half and injects keyboards into the stylistically varied mix.
From start to finish, Rides Again is a 70s rock classic — and, now, one that at last features first-rate sonics to match the music. Recorded at the then-brand-new Record Plant, the songs sound more authoritative and fun than ever before on our restored analog pressing.
Mastered from the original analog tapes, pressed at RTI, and strictly limited to numbered copies, this g LP teems with involving textures, details, and depth hidden from view on prior pressings. The dimensional body and weight of the guitars, probing low-end of Dale Peters' bass lines, reedy timbre of Walsh's singing, and pacing of the crisp percussive cues are all enhanced. Increased separation between the instruments and airier, more open soundstaging add to the record's toe-tapping fun and seemingly unlimited groove quotient.
Walsh, without question, remains the biggest draw on Rides Again. Yet it, as well as the sexual thrust of the head-bobbing "Woman" and proto-metal slash of the multi-part "The Bomber," fully represents the pure chemistry and locomotive momentum of the James Gang.
