James Gang Rides Again Again

From Billboard:

"After half a dozen reunion shows in Cleveland over the past five years, drummer Jim Fox tells the time was right for the James Gang's most potent lineup -- Fox, Joe Walsh (vocals/guitar) and Dale Peters (bass) -- to ride again....

"There's talk of recording a DVD towards the end of the month-long run but for now, nothing is certain. In addition, Fox says he'll discuss with his bandmates the possibility of releasing a recently discovered 1970 Netherlands concert, which was recorded a few months before the James Gang's 1971 Live in Concert album."

There is no more satisfying band to listen to than the James Gang when you're in the mood to do it. In fact, I was almost inspired to start a power trio the other day while listening to "Funk #49" but then I realized that would be slightly complicated for at least #50 reasons.
