5.0 out of 5 stars SO GLAD THIS IS AVAILABLE
When I look up music from this era, I never find it on cd unless its a “Super Group’, believe it or not, I still have it on vinyl, bought when it first was released!!! And Eddie is the only guy to write a love song titled with my name. I hated it as a teen, but now it is a honor, although I would not want my oldest girlfriends to serenade me again. Its a great album. Definitely get it!
5.0 out of 5 stars
Title track kicks ***. Eddies vocals and Jimmy Lyons guitar solo make for one of the all-time best rock tracks. “Gimme Some Water”, “Can’t Keep A Good Man Down”, and, “Rock and Roll The Place”, are all solid tracks. The track “Maureen” will have you snappin’ your fingers and feeling good.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Second Great Eddie Money Album,
LIFE FOR THE TAKING is Eddie Moneys second great album in a row. It contains several great songs, but the standouts are “Can’t Keep A Good Man Down” and the outlaw anthem “Gimme Some Water.” A few songs are obvious filler, but there are enough good ones to make this a 5-star album.
