EDDIE MONEY'S life was turned upside down by the runaway success of his 1977 debut ‘Eddie Money’. The fast-talkin’ New Yorker had spent the best part of fifteen years chasing his dreams of rock stardom, first in bands on his native east coast, then right across the other side of the country following a move to Berkeley, California back in ’68. Eventually, after being taken under the wing of legendary San Francisco-based promoter Bill Graham in 1976, he achieved the success he deserved. ‘Life For The Taking’ was his second album and recorded with a clever ‘if it’s not broken, don’t fix it’ approach. Sticking to what he knew best, Eddie reconvened the same team who worked on his debut album. The results were equally as magical, Eddie’s identifiably gritty voice sitting atop a fine collection of songs that mixed r ‘n’ b with rock very much in the same style as his debut album. Issued in early 1979, the album consolidated the success of his debut, lodging itself in the top 20 of the US album charts. It also contained material that would provide more introspective lyrical content such ‘You Can’t Keep A Good Man Down’ and the magnificent title track, a brooding epic inspired by his childhood experiences in Brooklyn. 24-bit remastering from original source tapes, 3,500 word essay about the making of the album, new interveiw with Eddie, enhanced artwork and previously unseen photos all spread out over a 12 page full colour booklet.
