Fun Cards: 1972 Topps Joe Walsh (Barnstorm)

1972 Topps Joe Walsh Barnstorm

Joe Walsh recorded two albums with Barnstorm, 1972’s Barnstorm and 1973’s The Smoker You Drink, The Player You Get, the later containing the classic “Rocky Mountain Way.” Many fans have forgotten that these were Barnstorm albums and not Joe Walsh solo records, and that’s how the record company promoted them. Walsh said, “I wanted to be a band, not a solo artist. Vitale, especially, should’ve gotten more credit ’cause it wasn’t all me….It was in every aspect a collaborative effort.” The group also served as a backing band for Michael Stanley’s 1973 Friends & Legends record.
