Default Re: Happy anniversary One of These Nights!

Before I posted I quickly re-read the topic and it seemed to me that I was the only person who was less than totally enthusiastic about ATTIG of the people who have posted. If anyone else on this board feels the way I feel about it they haven't said so.

I should love it because I love Glenn and Don singing together but this is my least favourite of their duets. It isn't that I don't like it - I do like it but I will never be passionate about it in any way.

Don't feel bad Fp. We can't LOVE every song.

ATTIG has always been one of my favorites and their voices 'get me' every time I hear it. I just love some of the lines. Very meaningful to me.

While I've been posting on the board today, I listened to the One of These Nights albums again. Even though I agree the albums biggest problems is its 'uneveness', it is still a very good album. To me, OOTN, LE, TITTL, and ATTIG are so great that they overshadow the other songs. I also agree with what Freypower said earlier in this thread about the Hollywood Waltz lyrics foreshadowing Hotel California. Actually, I think this is probably true about the lyrics of the other songs as well, with the exception of I Wish You Peace. To me, it's not that IWYP is a bad song, it's just that it seems out of place on the album. I think bluegrass flavored JOTS is also out of place. As much love and respect as I have for Bernie, I think his contributions on this albums exacerbate the problems he was having fitting in with the rest of the band at this point. It is very evident to me that the band and Bernie were moving in very different musical directions by the time this album was recorded.

Happy Anniversary One Of These Nights!

I really like this album. The guitar solo on the title track by Don Felder is one of my favorites and the title track itself is one of my favorite Eagles songs. I love that song! Also I really like "Take It To The Limit" and "Lyin' Eyes" also.

Oooh loving the new look board and your new signature image Nancy. V-e-r-y nice pic of the guys.

I don't have this album ..........yet. Well not on CD, but I do have it on vinyl. Not that I can play it. It's on my list to get on CD when the girls don't need something, dog or other animals not at the vets for jabs or something else comes up.

Well, a timely arrival. I got a lovely OOTN bookmark on eBay earlier this week and it arrived yesterday! I'll get a pic up tomorrow.

It looks better than the pic gives justice. The lyrics are in white against a blue background on the reverse.
