  • Playing for Keeps is Eddie Money's third album, released in 1980. It continues the expansion to include pop oriented tracks that began with the previous album. Jimmy Lyon's guitar work is a key to standouts "Trinidad" and "Million Dollar Girl" the first and last tracks. The inclusion of the reggae-influenced "Running Back" as well as the syrupy duet "Let's Be Lovers Again" with Valerie Carter are indicative of the attempt to maintain rocker status and successfully migrate into the pop charts at the same time. The album was panned by critics who wanted it one way or the other although in fact, it contains some of Money's strongest early recordings. Several of the tracks were written in conjunction with band member Randy Nichols who toured and recorded with Money at the time. "Get A Move On"- also featured on the soundtrack from Americathon- received AOR airplay as did "Trinidad", but the singles chosen for release didn't stir much excitement with reviewers or radio. The album was briefly released on the CD format, but quickly withdrawn. It had not been reissued on CD until recently, remaining available only in scarce numbers by resellers until 2012 when the four first albums were remastered and re-released by a European label named Rock Candy. Following the end of the tour supporting this album, Money experienced a collapse and subsequent hospitalization. A notable break allowing for recuperation followed. (en)
  • Playing for Keeps é o terceiro álbum de Eddie Money, lançado em 1980. Deu continuidade à grande fase de Eddie Money, desde que o mesmo lançou o primeiro álbum (Eddie Money) em 1977. Jimmy Lyon guitarra produziu das músicas "Trinidad" e "Million Dollar Girls", primeira e última faixas, respectivamente. O esforço para fazer com que esse álbum atingisse airplays em rádios foi enorme, e desapontou muitos fãs. Mesmo assim, o álbum foi um grande sucesso e não desapontou nenhum fã em termo de música. Outras notáveis músicas do álbum são "Let's Be Lovers Again", um dueto (com Valerie Carter), e "Get a Move On". (pt)
