    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.
    Any record that contains TIE, WW & PEF has got to be awesome. I think that those songs alone make it pretty impressive for a first album, not to mention the strength of the rest of the songs on it! They hadn't even been together that long at that point! Those 3 songs have become classics. Still popular after 40 years!

    Happy Anniversary Eagles LP!

    Love TIE, PEF, and WW from this album. TIE to me is their "country" Hotel California.

    Well - the birthday celebration for this album may have been a little overshadowed by the band's 40th anniversary celebration so I thought I'd revive this thread with a little bit of info about the album's gatefold. Many of you may already know this, but, hopefully, it will be new interesting trivia for some others.

    Earlier in this thread I posted a picture of the album's gatefold. However, when you open the actual cover of the album, the picture appears upside down like this ...



    According to Gary Burden, the art designer of the album, the album was supposed to open all the way to display all four panels. If it had been designed like this, the inverted picture would have dropped down when opened all the way to be the bottom panels showing the guys looking up towards the sky from the dungeon.

    However, according to Gary in the Under the Covers DVD, the record company decided that design would be too much money too fork over for an unknown band, so 'an "economic adjustment" was made and the idea was scrapped. They went ahead and printed the picture upside down anyway just for grins.

    Until I saw Under the Covers, I never knew this gatefold existed. My copy of the album is just the sleeve with the desert pics on the front and back, and an inside paper sleeve with a desert flower photo.

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.
    Well said Dreamer!! and...

    HAPPY 4OTH ANNIVERSARY EAGLES!!!

    I just listened to Eagles yesterday for the first time in ages. I'm glad I did because I remembered I liked songs I had forgotten all about. Here's my list:

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

    I can't really say there are any stinkers on this album, despite what some of the guys might think about their early work. For a debut album, they did a great job.

    Don't know this album, except for tracks 1, 3 & 5. I went looking a couple of days ago for anything Eagles on CD, saw the white double CD a few days before that and somebody had beat me to it..the first Greatest Hits was there though, the blue album. So I'm on a mission to catch up on the albums (I don't have any now, lost them in a move).

    Hey, LTL...thought I'd mention that this pic of Tim in your avatar looks like one of our (Australia's) 60s music legends, Doug Parkinson..except his voice is completely the opposite of Timothy's, very deep and gutsy!
