Randy Meisner is the third solo studio album (and the second self-titled) by Randy Meisner. It was released in mid 1982, on Epic in the United States, and in the United Kingdom. It is to-date Meisner's final solo album of original material. The album features a duet with Heart's lead vocalist, Ann Wilson.

Critical reception[edit]

Reviewing for AllMusic, critic Bruce Eder wrote that the album "is a gorgeous country-rock production with a hard electric edge in all the right places and soaring melodies throughout" and he added that, "There are pleasing guitar hooks throughout, and the album's mix of raw power and subtle lyricism has endured very well over the decades."[2]
