Before Entwistle came along as a member of the Who, bassists seldom stood out for their playing and few casual listeners knew or cared what purpose the four-stringed instrument served - after he came along, everyone knew.
Mad Dog - After three solo releases in a span of three years, Who bassist John Entwistle decided to form his own 'band' for his fourth non-Who release, Mad Dog. Credited to John Enwistle's Ox, the band greatly expanded to include horns, keyboards, and strings to the usual rock band set-up (bass, vocals, guitar, drums). Originally released on Decca in 1975, the album was recorded during the filming of The Who's Tommy film and the recording of its soundtrack. This was the last album to be produced by the legendary John Alcock
Too Late The Hero - Who bassist's 1981 solo album featuring drummer Joe Vitale & the signature guitar work of Joe Walsh all over the album. The album's nine tracks focus on themes of love, disco and passion. Includes, 'Dancing Master', 'Fallen Angel', 'Talk Dirty' & 'Too Late The Hero'.
The Rock - Billed as the 'lost' Entwistle album, although recorded in 1986 it saw US release in 1996 but was never released domestically in the UK. Featuring Zak Starkey on drums, this is a must have purchase for all fans.
