EDDIE MONEY’s first two albums certainly set the scene: panoramic melodic hard rock filled with memorable hooks supporting an instantly identifiable rasp. It was a tailor made sound that perfectly fitted the American airwaves sitting comfortably besides music from the likes of Boston, Foreigner and Journey. A reliable style that served Eddie well and it was masterfully replicated on this, his third, album. Originally issued in 1980, ‘Playing For Keeps’ took the original Money format one stage further, upping the stakes by utilising producer in Ron Nevison. Nevison, of course, was the flavour of the time having learnt his craft engineering Led Zeppelin and the Who before embarking on a career guiding some of the worlds most successful AOR albums including records from Jefferson Starship, Survivor and Heart. Keeping the basics of his band in place (including super-guitarist Jimmy Lyons) the tracks were augmented by a number of high profile guests, including drummer Carmine Appice. Highlights include ‘Trinidad’, ‘Running Back’ and ‘Let’s Be Lovers Again’ all featuring Money’s soulful vocal and high energy delivery. That Eddie Money is one of the best performers of his generation is in no doubt, with ‘Playing For Keeps’ solidly reinforcing that assertion. 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.
