    Default Celebration of "Eagles" LP!

    I know we just got done celebrating for One of These Nights, but on June 17, 1972, the Eagles released their first album - the self-titled Eagles LP. A momentous occasion indeed! The Eagles have come a long way since that first album, but it still stands as a strong debut. Hits like Take It Easy, Peaceful Easy Feeling, and Witchy Woman still get airplay today. In fact, along with Hotel California, Take It Easy is considered by many people to be THE definitive Eagles song.

    The first album from the band that would change rock'n'roll forever. Happy birthday, Eagles LP!

    Happy Anniversary to Eagles indeed! It is one of my favourites and is a testament to the lads that it has stood the test of time so well over the years. Indeed, the songs you have mentioned always feature on the set list at concerts and they are the first songs that come into peoples heads when you mention the Eagles to them. (And believe me.....I do a lot of mentioning!!)

    Dare anybody call this LP anything other than a classic?

    I rank this album pretty high on my list of Eagles albums. I remember hearing some of these songs over and over on the radio and just slowly falling in love with the Eagles. Besides the "big 3" on the album, I can't help but say I love Chug All Night and can honestly say I don't pass over any of these songs when they come thru on the ipod! Great album!!

    How funny... I had no idea today was the anniversary, but I just listened to the whole CD on my way too work. What a happy coincidence. TIE and PEF are amongst my all time Eagles favorites... but I've never loved WW. It's not bad, but I probably skip it more than listen to it.

    Oh my! I can't fathom skipping WW, ltlh! But I know we all have our faves.

    I was there when this album came out and I'll never forget playing the vinyl for the first time. I had heard TIE (my alltime favorite Eagles song) and WW (yummy) on the radio and was already a fan. PEF is also at the top of my list. Just plain classics!

    LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT! What else can you say?!

    Happy Anniversary, "Eagles".

    I'm looking forward to the anniversary celebration week for this album. I really get a kick out of reading everyone's comments about which songs and albums they do or do not like. Even though, overall, this is one of my least favorite Eagles albums, as Soda said, it is still a very impressive debut album. Even now, Take It Easy, Witchy Woman, and Peaceful Easy Feeling still sound fresh to me. I just don't ever tire of hearing them. Looking at the guys now, it is hard to imagine the nervousness, anticipation, and excitement these young guys must have been feeling 37 years ago as their first album hit the stores. Whew - if they had only knew!!!

    great album, i have to say my favorite song on the album is probably nightingale, but the only one i ever skip is MOUAS, but it's not that i don't like the song it's just one that you have to be in the right mood for.
