Happy Birthday "Eagles" LP. And I just bought it today!

I'd be interested to see the sales figures (for all of their albums) over the years. How many albums are still selling 39 years after their release?

Me too, Brooke. I don't remember exacly when, but I bought this album in the summer of '72 very soon after I heard Take It Easy for the first time. I'm still trying to think back and figure out why I bought the album. At that time, I usually bought only singles of songs I loved and only bought albums occasionally for my favorite bands like The Beatles. Oh well - for some reason, I bought this album and everything else this band released after that. They replaced The Beatles as my favorite band the day I bought it, and no one ever replaced them in my heart since.

HAPPY 39TH ANNIVERSARY 'EAGLES'!!!

If this album didn't exist, I wouldn't be an Eagles fan

I can't say it's my favorite. Because I got the first three together, I ended up focusing on Desperado. I like that's there is a good amount of Randy on Eagles. I liked Randy. I still miss him sometimes. I always think fondly of him when Glenn starts singing Take It To the Limit. Sorry Glenn, you've got a beautiful voice, but no one can touch Randy on that song, although, I would like to hear Timothy do it just once.

Tim has actually said that he doesn't want to sing TITTL. He didn't feel comfortable singing a song so closely identified with Randy. Glenn doesn't have to worry about that since he co-wrote it, but I can understand Tim's hesitance. Tim has always shown the greatest respect for Randy.

One more thing to love about Timothy!

HAPPY 40th ANNIVERSARY EAGLES!!!!!!

Well - the official 40th anniversary date for the band is here. Their very first album was released on June 17, 1972. Most folks don't consider this their best album, but it was a pretty impressive debut album for this young southern California country rock band. Of course, the members weren't from southern California at all and, not only that, but they actually recorded the album in London. Oh well - details, details.
