“WHEN THIS ALBUM was released, in 1982, Eddie Money was a hugely successful and famous artist with a string of hit singles and platinum albums to his name. Eddie’s raspy tones and his penchant for earthy blue collar rock had served him well, yet his lust for living life to the full had, before the release of his last album, taken a turn for the worse when ill-health nearly ruined his good fortune. Luckily, Eddie continued to recover from this health set back and commenced the recording his fifth album ‘Where’s The Party?’ an album largely produced, as was his previous platinum smash ‘No Control’, by veteran studio wizard, Tom Dowd (Derek & The Dominoes, Cream etc) in Los Angeles, surrounded by a number of top sessions players, including members of Mr Mister, The Steve Miller Band and Rod Stewart’s band. In keeping with previous recordings Eddie co-wrote a selection of radio friendly, tough-guy rock tracks that gave full reign to his mellifluous voice. Whilst it’s true to say that none of the tracks on this album achieved hit single status, the body of work is beyond reproach, serving up a choice selection, songs such as ‘The Big Crash’, ‘Club Michelle’ and ‘Backtrack’, that fit firmly into the Money trademark sound of solid riffs and big shout-it-loud hooks. Indeed, as one of the best male vocalists of the era, Eddie stands out like a sparkling diamond. Special Deluxe Collector’s Edition, fully remastered sound, 12 page full color booklet, new interviews, 3,000 word essay, enhanced artwork and rare photos.
