SHM-CD format CDs are fully compatible with standard CD players.

Walsh's catalog by this point was two albums strong and of a consistently high quality. Despite a change of staff for So What -- a wide range of musicians are used, including the Eagles' Don Henley -- the sound is very similar to previous releases. A number of classic Joe Walsh tracks are featured including a more polished version of "Turn to Stone," originally featured on Walsh's debut album Barnstorm in a somewhat more riotous style. "Help Me Thru The Night," Joe Walsh's mellowest song to date, is helped along by some fine lead and backing vocals from the band. So What sees Joe Walsh in top gear as a guitarist. Most of the nine tracks feature solos of unquestionable quality in his usual rock style. The classic rock genre that the man so well defined with his earlier albums is present here throughout, and it is pulled off with the usual unparalleled Joe Walsh ability. ..B. Davies

Joe Walsh is perhaps best known for his affiliation with the Eagles, but he has had success as a solo artist and has served his time in other bands.

Though he didn’t join the Eagles until 1976, he had been playing music since before he left University. He first appeared on vinyl in 1969, as part of the James Gang. He appeared on four of their albums between 1969 and 1971 and the band enjoyed chart success with “Funk #49” and “Walk Away”. After leaving the band, Walsh formed Barnstorm and they released an eponymous album which sold moderately well. Then in 1973 he released his own solo debut The Smoker You Drink, the Player You Get and scored a hit with “Rocky Mountain Way”. After two more solo albums, Walsh took over for Bernie Leadon in the Eagles in time to make his debut on the hugely successful Hotel California album. Throughout his tenure with the Eagles he continued to make solo releases and enjoyed his biggest success with 1978’s But Seriously, Folks and its No.12 hit “Life’s Been Good”. The Eagles split in 1980 and Walsh continued with his solo releases, but the sales were dropping off. During this time he toured with Ringo Starr as part of the All Starr Band and recorded an unplugged album with Dr. John. When the Eagles reunited, Walsh was there with them and has continued to be so ever since, up to the present day.
