Sad news today, but in honor of the Money Man, let's rank his studio albums. Here's my ranking from fav to least:

1. Can't Hold Back (1986) - his best and also his most AOR album. A master class in how it's done.

2. No Control (1982) - My introduction to Eddie Money. What a line up of musicians and songs.

3. Right Here (1991) - Soft spot for this one. Love it to this day. Latter-day Money was still relevant.

4. Eddie Money (1977) - 2 of his most memorable tunes and even the Smokey cover is classic.

5. Ready Eddie (1999) - Fantastic comeback album harking back to his No Control-era style.

6. Nothing to Lose (1988) - Still reaching for the charts, but some of the songs are undeniable. Magic and Boardwalk Baby are great.

7. Love and Money (1995) - More laid back, but I still dig some of this album. Nothing new, but solid.

8. Life for the Taking (1978) - For Gimme Some Water alone.

9. Playing for Keeps (1980) - Not memorable, but some decent songs.

10. Where's the Party? (1983) - follow up to No Control let me down at the time. The title track was a fun live staple.

11. Wanna Go Back (2007) - The obligatory covers album.


I'd also rank Unplug It In pretty highly as a great little live EP. The acoustic versions of Gimme Some Water and Save A Little Room are worth tracking down.

He will be missed. RIP
