    Went to Half Priced Book Store today and bought 2 vinyl Glenn Frey records. The Allnighter and No Fun Allowed. The first time I have found any of Glenn's there. They used to have a bunch of Eagles vinyls but now can't find a one.

    Hope you enjoy these Shirley. As I've said in my reviews in both this thread and the No Fun Aloud thread, I like The Allnighter album, although I think it is uneven, and it is my least favorite of Glenn's solo work. On the other hand, I absolutely love No Fun Aloud. Happy listening!

    June is sure a busy month for album anniversaries. 27 years ago today, The Allnighter was released. Happy birthday to The Allnighter!

    I see I never did a thorough review of this album. I'll have to write one up tomorrow!

    For me it ranks 3 out of 4. It's interesting that a couple of people think it's a better album than Strange Weather.

    (My ranking of the albums is Strange Weather, No Fun Aloud, The Allnighter, Soul Searchin').

    First of all ...

    HAPPY 27TH ANNIVERSARY TO THE ALLNIGHTER!

    My ranking of the albums are Strange Weather, No Fun Aloud, Soul Searchin', and then The Allnighter. However, even though it's my least favorite of Glenn's solo albums, I still like it a lot. I also find it interesting that some folks rate it higher than Strange Weather, but as we always say - "different strokes". It amazes me how different songs resinate in different ways with different people.

    For me the Allnighter is the best because I'm not a big fan of the other 3 (sorry Frey fans!). I just don't click with most of those songs where as my favorite Glenn solo songs are The Heat Is On, Smuggler's Blues, Sexy Girl, etc. 2 out of 3 of my favorite Frey solo songs are on that Allnighter album.

    I actually prefer Glenn's guitar playing over his singing, and I like his singing a LOT! I find him to be a very underrated rhythm guitar player. He's the Keith Richards of the Eagles - he keeps the rhythm for the band and is a backbone to their sound. I find his guitar skills to be very underrated. He offers that foundation for Walsh and Felder (now Walsh and Smith) to do their stuff. He also can play some lead, but it's something he seems intimidated to do or uninterested in. I've seen him play lead on "Already Gone" for instance, and he's very good. But really Glenn is a rhythm guitarist, be it acoustic strumming or electric shuffle.
