    It's very special, what a great gift for his parents, they must have been over the moon thrilled.

    Yes, that's so true. I am very thankful he made the album.

    Indeed. There is far more to it than it being a gift for his parents.

    Yes, I just meant his desire to make an album of music his parents loved and listened to when he was growing up was part of his inspiration. He was also inspired by Linda Ronstadt's collaborative work with Nelson Riddle.

    "The Look of Love" and "Shadow of Your Smile" are simply transcendent! So beautiful! His voice is like pure spring water.

    Radio Interview in Pasadena 2012 in advance of the release of After Hours. I had only been able to find and read Part 3 so I was happy to discover the complete series is available online.

    It's hard to believe we are only a few short weeks away from the second anniversary of Glenn's passing. I sure do miss him but it helps to focus on celebrating his life and enjoying his records, especially AH which he truly loved making.
    Thank you for sharing that interview, it's wonderful. I had listened to the audio a couple years ago, but missed/forgot some details. I really like when he talks about a singer's voice taking on some of the timbre of the instruments he or she is singing with. I had noticed this with Peter Cetera's voice on the Chicago records, taking on a bit of the timbre of the horns (or maybe just making adjustments so he could be heard over them!). I love it when musicians talk shop.

    But it's a little sad too, because you can sense Glenn's vitality, even just from reading the transcript.

    P.S. When Glenn is talking about getting a songwriting credit on "Take It Easy" and then later "giving it back" to Jackson, anybody know what he means? Surely Glenn wouldn't give up his songwriting credit.

    Love those songs too!

    I used to think Caroline, No was my favorite but after listening to the entire album again I honestly don't think I can choose one song over another. They are all so beautufully arranged and sung.

    Hi NMB, I am wondering the same thing too. What did Glenn Frey mean about the songwriting credit? I hope someone can help us out.

    Glad you enjoyed revisiting the Art of the Song interview. IMHO it is one of the most interesting interviews he has given. And yes, I so agree with you about Glenn's vitality. Bittersweet to be sure.

    I don't think Glenn gave up the credit but he may have paid back in another way. For example he bought Jackson an old car which is on the cover of Late for the Sky (the car story is from Henry Diltz). Given how often the Eagles version of the song gets played, I doubt Jackson is worried about sharing the credit.
