    I've always thought "Living in Darkness" was about pressure to resume the Eagles. It's very interesting in that respect, as he deals with that topic very little in his lyrics.

    I don't really like it musically, nor do it like the way Glenn approaches it vocally. I've said this elsewhere, but I far prefer his voice when he's singing more naturally throughout.

    My problem with "Living in Darkness" is that it sounds like someone got a synthesizer for Christmas and couldn't wait to try out EVERYTHING! LOL.

    The title cut, now.... Mercy. I know it's about a booty call and so forth, but the booty in question.....

    "Lovers' Moon" just makes me sigh.

    And on that deliciously smutty thread with all the football references from about 10 years ago: Wish I'd been a member then. I'd have gotten in on that one. (You know, it started out with the quarterback reference.) LOLOLOL. Two words: Wide Receiver.

    Happy 34th Birthday to The Allnighter.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some." -Don Henley

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO THE ALLNIGHTER!!!

    This is one of my least favorites of Glenn's solo albums because it is very uneven. But, I do love Smuggler's Blues, the hot and sexy title track, and the catchy I Got Love.

    Here is an article about the album.


    http://ultimateclassicrock.com/glenn-frey-allnighter/


    Once again, however, comparisons MUST be made with Henley, who apparently 'upped the ante'. It also appears to imply that the Frey & Tempchin partnership started with this album when in fact it began with No Fun Aloud.


    NOTE: This article was also quoted a couple of pages back in this thread. It would be nice if the UCR website would come up with updated information.

    I donít get why his solo career canít be discussed without Don being brought into play. Itís not like everytime Donís solo career comes up they have to mention Glennís. Itís not fair. I do prefer the hits of Donís career but I think Glennís albums have much more depth and are more solid from top to bottom.

    It is to Glenn's credit that he had no fear and jumped in with both feet whether producing a solo album or taking on a challenging acting role for a hit tv show and even the big screen. It is amazing - downright inspirational - how far a young Glenn Frey actually went after burning his long johns and heading west to seek his fame and fortune. How much more he could/would have accomplished is anyone's guess but personally I have no doubt Glenn Frey was never going to stop chasing his dreams and making them a reality.

    Happy Anniversary to The Allnighter. I am listening to it while working on a creative project of my own. Going kinda slow hard to concentrate while turning back the hands of time.

    I agree. So frustrating UCR can't get their facts right or apparently even update their website. As for the Henley comparison, pfft, best I not comment. I don't even like to think about him anymore.
