Happy 40th from me too!! Just a few days late as I have been out of pocket.

Did I read somewhere that Randy's version of TITTL here is what he envisioned it sounding like? Of course, I could be most definitely wrong...

I was able to find only a couple of things about the album release with a newspapers.com search. From a June 10, 1978 article from The Atlanta Constitution is this quote; Randy Meisner, formerly of The Eagles, has released his first solo single, "I Really Want You Here Tonight". An album, titled "Randy Meisner," will be forthcoming...


From the same paper, dated June 24, 1978, this quote; Former Eagles bassist Randy Meisner is coming out with his first solo album this week. Included are "Bad Man" from the "FM" soundtrack and a reworking of The Eagles' hit "Take It To The Limit," which Meisner co-authored.

Thanks for looking into it, My My. What you found appears to support an early July release date.

I found this in a July issue of Billboard. It doesn’t directly state the release date but it seems that it would have occurred in July rather June as well.

”New LP/Tape Releases” Billboard, July 22, 1978

Hi ETG, I don’t remember reading that before. I thought I read that Randy originally was going for a more rock vibe with TITTL. What he and producer Alan Brackett came up with is just gorgeous, though.

Hmm, thanks Delilah, who knows.

I agree, it is a beautiful take on it.
