Eagles

The band formed in 1971 when Linda Ronstadt's then-manager, John Boylan, extracted Frey, Leadon, and Meisner from their affiliations. They were short a drummer until Frey phoned Henley, whom he had met at the Troubadour in Los Angeles. The band backed up Ronstadt on a two-month tour, then decided to form their own band, The Eagles. Their first album, The Eagles, was filled with pure, sometimes innocent country rock; their second, Desperado, was themed on Old West outlaws and introduced the group's penchant for conceptual songwriting. To record their third album, On the Border, the group selected producer Glyn Johns, who previously worked with Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, and The Who

Peter Case: Peter Case

Read "Peter Case: Peter Case" reviewed by Doug Collette

The music on Peter Case's debut solo album is as pure and straightforward as the title of this eponymous work. And that's even taking into account the layered approach T Bone Burnett applied in one of his earliest production jobs.

Jack Tempchin: One More Song

Read "Jack Tempchin: One More Song" reviewed by Doug Collette

Jack Tempchin's name may not elicit immediate recognition, but chances are his songs will. He contributed to the composition of “Peaceful Easy Feeling" on the Eagles' eponymous debut album in 1972 and also helped write “Already Gone" from On the Border (Elektra, 1974).
