Columbia/Legacy's 2001 release The Best of Eddie Money supplants the earlier 1989 collection Greatest Hits: The Sound of Money as the best overview of Money's career. Again, it's not sequenced chronologically, nor is it as tight as it should have been (Money is somebody who would really sound terrific on an eight- or ten-song collection), but it's very good all the same, containing all of his big hits, plus live versions of "Rock and Roll the Place" and "No Control" previously only available on a promo EP. So, even if it's not perfect, it will still satisfy the needs of most Money fans.
This strong debut benefits greatly from the expertise of veteran producer Bruce Botnick as well as the likes of former Steve Miller bassist Lonnie Turner and saxman Tom Scott. Guitarist Jimmy Lyon was to Money what Keith Scott was to Bryan Adams. Money, son of a New York City cop, had a rock & roll epiphany en route to following his dad's career path. The debut album, long on craft but not without inspiration, deservedly shot radio-ready tunes "Two Tickets to Paradise" and "Baby Hold On" up the charts, the latter helped by former Elvin Bishop songmate Jo Baker. The key tune is the spirited "Wanna Be a Rock 'n' Roll Star," which spells out the game plan.
The Blues Masters series, much to Rhino`s credit, adopts an expansive definition of blues, allowing the likes of Count Basie, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Muddy Waters and even Louis Prima admission. There is none of the purist`s quibbling over strict 12-bar form or the relative significance of prewar and postwar styles.
What Rhino delivers instead is the blues in all its myriad guises. This music is old and new, black and white, acoustic and electric, folksy and jazzy, performed by women and men, and yet it is all still blues at its core.
"Wanna Go Back" is Eddie Money's eleventh album, released in 2007. On it, Money sings cover versions of popular songs from the 1960s. His daughter, Jesse Money, performed on three tracks from the album. It will surely become a collector's item!
Eddie Money album Ready Eddie is a good music album, Ready Eddie release at May 18, 1999. Featuring a very tight band, and the guitar talents of Survivor's Frankie Sullivan, 1999's 'Ready Eddie' is one of Eddie Money's best albums ever, featuring a collection of hard-driving rock'n'roll songs that only dreams are made of. It's hard to name a favorite here since all the songs count!
"Shakin' with the Money Man" is a latter-day, live recording from Eddie Money that finds him running through his biggest hits - "Two Tickets to Paradise," "Shakin'," "Baby Hold On," "Wanna Go Back," "Take Me Home Tonight" - for an appreciative audience. In addition to the hits, he throws in a couple of lesser-known tunes, recent numbers, and a holiday song to keep the diehards happy.
"Love And Money" is the ninth studio album by rock artist Eddie Money. This 1995 release is like a valentine from Eddie. Lots of beautiful love songs. It was just pretty much invisible in the mid-nineties grunge era. It is just as good as any of Eddie's other CD's.
