"All Night Long" by Joe Walsh

Song#:  0177
Date:  05/17/1980
Debut:  74
Peak:  19
Weeks:  16
Genre:  Country Rock

Pop Bits:  Joe Walsh was already a success with the James Gang and Barnstorm before joining the Eagles in 1975. He had one solo disc out while he was with the Eagles which included the hit "Life's Been Good" (#12) and after the breakup of the band in 1980 he continued with his solo career. His first single release was this song that was on the "Urban Cowboy" soundtrack. It would take him another year to release is first post-Eagles album.

ReduxReview:  Walsh is frustrating to me. He has some terrific songs, but then some really un-terrific songs. This one kind of falls in the middle. Country rock is not my thang but this is a pretty good bar stomper. I just would not put it on my list of favorite Joe Walsh tunes.

ReduxRating:  5/10

Trivia:  Walsh has been involved with Amateur Radio (ham radio) for many years. He holds an Amateur Extra Class license and his station call sign is WB6ACU.
