Eagles

Active since:

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

Christian Parker: Sweethearts: A Tribute To The Byrds 'Sweetheart of the Rodeo'

Read "Sweethearts: A Tribute To The Byrds 'Sweetheart of the Rodeo'" reviewed by Doug Collette


In the half-century plus since it came out, the Byrds' Sweetheart of the Rodeo (Columbia Records, 1968) arguably has not received the accolades it deserves for its marriage of country music with rock and roll. But that misperception may be grounded in the reality that the album as it was released is not exactly how it ...

Cimarron 615 and Poco: This Country Rocks!

Read "Cimarron 615 and Poco: This Country Rocks!" reviewed by Doug Collette


When Poco formalized the marriage of country music with rock and roll via Pickin' Up The Pieces (Epic, 1969)--after the first convergence of the genres on the Byrds' Sweetheart of the Rodeo (Columbia, 1968), the quintet emphasized improvisation in a way that's been lost during the evolution of contemporary country (although it's now the foundation of ...

Read "Let It Be - Super Deluxe Special Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette


It's perfectly reasonable to state that the Beatles' Let It Be Super Deluxe Special Edition is the iconic group's third attempt to release music from their (three weeks of) January 1969 recordings. Originally set to be released as an album titled Get Back Don't Let Me Down and 12 Other Songs (as emblazoned on a contemporary ...

Eagles: Legacy

Read "Legacy" reviewed by Doug Collette


Sometimes a gift box is just a gift box and that's certainly true of Eagles' Legacy. Not to disparage its ample resources, this is not quite the definitive history of these commercial kingpins of the Seventies. But then, there's never been one, at least in any format similar to this: Selected Works (Elektra, 2000) comes close, ...

Eagles: Hotel California: 40th Anniversary Expanded Edition

Read "Hotel California: 40th Anniversary Expanded Edition" reviewed by Doug Collette


Anyone inclined to cast aspersion on the integrity of the Eagles might well avail themselves of the 40th Anniversary Expanded Edition of Hotel California and go straight to the concert content on the second of the two CD's. Roughly forty-five minutes in duration, the ten tracks recorded live at the Los Angeles Forum in ...
