I like the idea that my vinyl collection holds most game changing albums. This 1972 Eagles debut album certainly belongs there. Because it made so that anyone can immediately identify any Eagles tune!
My feeling about the Eagles debut album
A unique mix of country-rock, ballads, rock-and-roll and amazing singing harmonies, it was an instant hit. It features the legendary ´Take It Easy’ and ´Witchy Woman’. These are obviously hit singles, hence damn good. But, for shivers, you may want to play the rockier ´Chug All Night’ and ´Take The Devil’ loud. They will blow your mind.
This album is a masterpiece in recording (producer Glyn Johns) and introduces the unique, laid-back, California Rock, Eagles sound that laid down the foundation for the band’s brilliant career. By uniquely combining Leadon’s banjo, Frey’s electric guitar, a very present Meisner’s bass and CSN-like vocal harmonies led by Henley and Frey.
´Eagles’ is ranked #368 in Rolling Stone’s list of 500 greatest albums.
