But Seriously, Folks...

You Can't Argue with a Sick Mind (subtitled Recorded Live) is a live solo album by the American singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Joe Walsh. The album was released in early 1976, on the label ABC Records. It was recorded live just before Walsh joined the Eagles, who also play on "Help Me Through the Night". This was Walsh's first and final album to be released by ABC Records. It was re-issued three years later by MCA Records in 1979.
