Catalog#  85603

No Control, released in 1982, is the fourth album from American rock musician Eddie Money. It is Platinum-certified, and contains the hits “Think I’m In Love” and “Shakin’.”

1981 was a troubled year at first for Eddie, in late ’81 Eddie O.D. after sniffing laundry deterergent he mistook for cocaine. Eddie recovered and tried putting his party life behind him. Mid ’82 brought us his 4th album the CLASSIC “No Control”, this album rocked from the get go and the band was in fine form here after the lackluster “Playing For Keeps”. The rockers included, “Shakin'”, The title track “No Contrtol”, “Take A Little Bit”, “Keep My Motor Running”, the pulsive “Drivin’ Me Crazy”, and the real charmer was the big hit “Think I’m In Love”, still a classic 29 years on. The reflective tunes are “Hard Life”, “My Friends, My Friends” and his tune he wrote for his good friend John Belushi “”Passing By The Graveyard”. Jimmy Lyons plays great guitar on this album. This would be Eddie’s best album (MHO) he has ever released.
