    In reality I have two 'equal favourite' songs on this album, but I have to make a choice so Tim wins.
    And the last four songs are almost interchangeable because I skip all of them.

    1) I Canít Tell You Why
    2) King of Hollywood
    3) Those Shoes
    4) The Long Run
    5) In the City
    6) Heartache Tonight
    7) The Greeks Donít Want No Freaks
    8 ) The Sad Cafť
    9) Teenage Jail
    10) The Disco Strangler

    Happy 32nd Anniversary to The Long Run:

    Overall this is not one of my favorite Eagle albums. It has it's great moments, but to me it's kind of inconsistent. I was anxious to see what Timothy would bring to this band, as I was a huge Poco fan and had mixed feelings about him joining the Eagles. I was not disappointed with Tim's debut here.
    Here's my list in order:

    1> I Can't Tell You Why
    2> Heartache Tonight
    3> In The City
    4> The Long Run
    5> The Sad Cafe
    6> Those Shoes
    7> The Greeks Don't Want No Freaks
    8> King of Hollywood
    9> Teenage Jail
    10>Disco Strangler

The critics had been pretty harsh, or so the DJs said at the time, and while they agreed it wasn't HC, they said that if it had been HC, they'd have been criticized for that.

    For most of us at the time, we were so desperate for a new LP we'd have loved anything they put out. For me, the Eagles appearance was always Glenn's fantastic hair and attitude. It was a shock to see his hair cut, but the times were changing and it was very much in style and my knees went weak just looking at the picture. I'm not sure I ever noticed the other guys in the picture!
    Given that sax is used on precisely one song on this album (The Sad Cafe) I am very surprised that that was such a talking point. It showed what Glenn would be doing in his solo work.

    As for your second paragraph that was me, on October 2 1979, the start of my obsession with Glenn. Put it this way; it was a shock to me too.

    As for rating the songs:

    1. Heartache Tonight
    2. King Of Hollywood
    3. The Sad Cafe
    4. Those Shoes
    5. I Can't Tell You Why
    6. The Disco Strangler
    7. In The City
    8. The Greeks Don't Want No Freaks
    9. The Long Run
    10. Teenage Jail

    FP, it was a song by song discussion. As I remember it, they played every song one right after the other. I didn't get to hear them all because the trip to the office only took but so long. I heard the part about the sax and my boyfriend told me about the Disco Strangler comment. Oh, and the very first time I ever heard New Kid In Town is when the hook was set for me.

    My list:
    1. Heartache Tonight
    2. I Can't Tell You Why
    3. In The City
    4. Sad Cafe
    5. Long Run
    6. Those Shoes
    7. The Greeks
    8. King of Hollywood
    9. Disco Strangler (since I still think disco should die, maybe this should be higher)
    10. Teenage Jail

    When NKIT came out I fell in love with Glenn's voice. However his appearance at that time didn't work for me. He had to cut his hair before I 'got it'.

    Sometimes the middle ones vary but the top three and the bottom four always remain the same for me.

    That was when you had a crush on Felder, right? Ah, the irony! lol

    But I agree with the opinion that Glenn cutting his hair and losing that moustache amped up his hotness quite a bit.

    The Long Run was never one of my favorites. I'm more partial to the Desperado through OOTN era. I think my reaction when I first played the album was "Ooookay...". Once Eagles Live came out, I rarely played TLR again.

    Here's my list:

    1. Heartache Tonight
    2. The Sad Cafe
    3. Those Shoes
    4. The Long Run
    5. In The City
    6. I Can't Tell You Why
    7. King of Hollywood
    8. Disco Strangler
    9. Greeks Don't Want No Freaks
    10. Teenage Jail

    As a side note, ever since I got the Millenium box set, whenever I think of Teenage Jail, all I hear is the goof on it that they did on Random Victims Part 3. Frankly, I like the goof version better.
