    I would urge anyone who hasn't heard it to try & do so because believe me, Glenn's solo work is really worth hearing.

    Here's something cute - Glenn's little comments on each song, as found in the liner notes:

    I Found Somebody
    GLENN FREY / JACK TEMPCHIN
    Well, what d'ya know? A happy song! In 1971, on my first trip to Alabama, a guitar player named Eddie Hinton showed me the fingering for what I call the Bobby Womack Chinese soul licks. I am ever grateful.

    The One You Love
    GLENN FREY / JACK TEMPCHIN
    Jack and I were on a roll. We had 4 or 5 good songs written and 3 more started. Sometimes when you're going good there are unwritten songs out in the cosmos who get jealous of the songs you're writing and say, "Hey, why don't you write me too!" This song came knocking in just that way.
    Guitars, Electric Piano & Bass: G.F.

    I Volunteer

    Sea Cruise
    HUEY SMITH / JOHN VINCENT
    Woke up with a minor hangover in Muscle Shoals, needed to feel better. Took 3 Excedrin, opened a beer and said, "We're doing Sea Cruise today with live horns." Felt better right away.

    All Those Lies
    GLENN FREY
    Never cheat on your mate, especially when you're too high to cover your tracks. Lies beget lies. The nice thing about the truth is, it's the only story you have to remember.

    Don't Give Up

    Originally written as the theme for Monday Night Football, but somehow things didn't work out. I still practice my Howard Cosell impersonation during the intro.

    I was about 30 years late to the party on this album. I only just got my first copy a couple of months ago. I would not have liked it when it was released. I was 18 then and only liked things that sounded like other things I liked. This album was a departure and I was not inclined to experiment.

    Boy, am I glad I grew up. By the time I finally listened to it top to bottom this February, I thoroughly enjoyed it. You can hear that Glenn is really testing his solo wings here, because no two songs sound the same. I don't really have a favorite song yet, but as is typical for me, I gravitate toward the non-hits like "I Volunteer" and "All Those Lies". I'll play it again today in honor of the anniversary.
