    My 2nd favorite Joe solo album (right after But Seriously Folks).

    It's a classic!

    Happy Birthday, "Smoker"!

    HAPPY BELATED 39th BIRTHDAY "THE SMOKER YOU DRINK, THE PLAYER YOU GET"!!!

    I have to admit that it's been so long since I heard some of the songs on this album that I don't really remember some of them. Of course, I do remember the awesome Rocky Mountain Way and Meadows and they are, obviously, my two favorites on the album. I'm going to try to find some time to listen to this soon, but, I'm too involved with Analog Man at the moment. Even though we haven't been getting much participation lately, if enough of you post your list, I'll compile the results as I try to do for other albums.

    Happy 43rd Birthday to The Smoker You Drink, The Player You Get.

    The only songs I know from this song(thanks to Pandora playing them a lot) are of course Rocky Mountain Way, Meadows and Dreams.

    Here's what The College of Rock and Roll Knowledge said about this album.

    Happy 46th Birthday to the album that got the Eagles interested in hiring Bill Szymczyk as their record producer.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some." -Don Henley

    And, thank God they brought Bill Szymczyk as their record producer. If they had not, I don't they would have become as big as they did.
