Joe Walsh formed Barnstorm after he left the James Gang.
The original members of the group were Joe Walsh (guitars, keyboards), Joe Vitale (drums, flute, keyboards) and Kenny Passarelli (bass); all of the members contributed vocals and songs, although Joe Walsh was the principal singer and songwriter.
Later, the group added keyboardist Rocke Grace, to permit it to play the complex arrangements live that it was creating through multi tracking in the studio or with the help of session musicians Paul Harris (piano) and Joe Lala (percussion).

Comments: This is a really fine recording that came my way a couple of weeks ago and really opened up some memories. Barnstorm would record only three albums over its three-year life (two as principals, Barnstorm and The Smoker You Drink, the Player You Get, plus serving as the backing band on Michael Stanley's Friends and Legends) before disbanding, although Walsh and Vitale have continued to work together ever since. Passarelli, meanwhile, joined Elton John's backing band in 1975, and he later rejoined Vitale in Crosby, Stills and Nash's backing band.
