    Happy 42nd Birthday to Eagles LP. To tell the truth. Their earliest albums I don't like other than the songs that were on the radio.

    I love PEF, TIE and WW.

    Happy Belated Birthday Eagles LP!

    This album is a great landmark and hugely important to the band but I really only like three songs from it - TIE, PEF, and WW. I'm in the minority I think but I prefer the original WW to the new version on the HOTE tour. Still a cool version though. Same way I feel about the new Heartache Tonight.

    I agree with you about liking the older versions of WW & HT better, Austin. I gues I don't like change.

    I adore both new arrangements. I don't have much love for either original though so that may sway me quite a lot. Certainly the new HT is 10x better than the original for me.

    I didn't like the HFO version of HC either. I just didn't find it good at all.

    The new HT is too acoustic for my tastes. I miss the intro rock chords and the whole electric vibe of it. The new WW doesn't have the swagger of the original to me.

    More loud electric riffs I say!

    I definitely echo GL's statements about not liking change but I genuinely feel that the original versions of these three songs are much better.

    Well - I'm late to the party, but I'd like to also belatedly chime in here ...

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY EAGLES LP!!!


    And although I like the new arrangements of Witchy Woman and Heartache Tonight for a change, I'm one that also prefers the original versions of both songs.

    I hardly ever listen to the Eagles when my girlfriend is with me. She doesn't care for them that much, although she certainly doesn't hate them either. But I was listening to this album today, and when she heard "Take the devil", she went "what is this?". She loved the song - especially the chorus. She hardly ever mentions guitar solos, but she also really liked Glenn's solo at the end of the song.

    Reminds me of an old school friend of mine who didn't like the Eagles at all, but really loved Bitter Creek when he heard it. On the KISSFAQ forum I "met" a guy who can't stand the Eagles, but loves Journey Of The Sorcerer.

    I'm starting to think that we should compile a collection CD called "Eagles for the Eagles haters".
