    There you go again dreamer! Took the words right out of my mouth, or keyboard, I guess! I swear, we must have been twins, separated at birth!

    Brooke, I've always thought it is very possible that we are twins separated at birth. But you are definitely the nice twin!

    Now, like some of the more 'mature' fans here, I was also around when Eagles was first released. Take It Easy was my very favorite song during the summer of '72. I think it was probably a few months before I actually bought the album. I had no idea what the band looked like or how many members there were, etc. I do remember very well when I got the album, I was anxious to see a picture of the band. To my dismay, I opened it the gatefold to find an upside down picture of THIS:



    I remember thinking to myself, well, they may be able to sing, but they sure ain't much to look at!!

    Yeah, that picture doesn't do them justice! How funny, now we all think one is more stunning than the next.

    That's just funny!!! Now I was the opposite, even at the age of 10 or 11 I thought WOW! Loved the hair (some things never change ), much to the dismay of my poor parents! I was especially taken with Glenn & Randy.

    I'll continue using this scale to rate the songs for all of the remaining albums as we celebrate their anniversaries. Again, I like all of the songs on 'Eagles', but I do think this is one of the band’s more uneven albums, so I have a lot more '3's' than I usually do. To me about half of the songs are really excellent whereas the other half are just pleasant, but nothing exceptional about them.


    1. Take It Easy - 5
    2. Peaceful Easy Feeling - 5
    3. Witchy Woman - 5
    4. Chug All Night - 5
    5. Train Leaves Here This Morning - 4
    6. Nightingale - 4
    7. Most of Us Are Sad - 3
    8. Tryin’ - 3
    9. Take the Devil - 3
    10. Earlybird - 3

    key:
    5 - I love it
    4 - I really like it
    3 - I like it
    2 - meh
    1 - yikes

    Well, I thought I would close out the Eagles LP celebration week by posting one of my favorite pictures from that era. I just think this is adorable. I think the herbs on Don's shirt must have made Bernie very sleepy.
