    Default Celebration of "Natural Progressions"

    Bernie Leadon and Michael Georgiades' "Natural Progressions" was released 35 years ago this month!

    Wow! I sure wish Bernie would do more. I'd love to see him live.

    Right now it seems his only public visibility is in the emails he writes to the Lefsetz letter!

    I do have the vinyl but haven't listened to it since back then! Can't even remember anything about it. I don't have a turntable anymore and we gave all the rest of our vinyls to our daughter who is really in to them. (Except Eagles ones, which are willed to her when we're gone! )

    You can buy MP3s of the songs through Amazon for just 99 cents each:

    Bernie's songs are "How Can You Live Without Love", "Rotation", "As Time Goes On", "The Sparrow", and "Glass Off." On the other songs he backs Michael Georgiades.

    I just discovered this album and I love it. I'll post a full album review after I give it a few more spins and take some time to digest all songs. I would recommend everyone taking a listen of this album. It's on Spotify.
    Tracklist:
    1. Callin' For Your Love
    2. How Can You Live Without Love?
    3. Breath
    4. Rotation
    5. You're The Singer
    6. Tropical Winter
    7. As Time Goes On
    8. The Sparrow
    9. At Love Again
    10. Glass Off

    I just bought this album on vinyl. My main record guy sent me a picture of it, and said that it's a great album. Being the Eagles fan that I am, I bought his copy of the album.

    Have you given it a spin yet? After the first half dozen or so listens, I like Breathe, The Sparrow, Glass Off, and You're the Singer the best. The album doesn't have stunning vocals or mass appeal, but it's a cohesive and enjoyable listen.

    Not yet. I just got it in this afternoon, and I haven't had time to turn on the turntable yet.

    I've just listened to this again on Spotify. It really is a good album. There are no 'hit singles' but as JWalk87 says, it's a cohesive and good listen.

    Looking at this album in context with OOTN and HC, you can see how Bernie wasn't really compatible with the Eagles' direction. These songs are amply good enough to fit on pre-HC albums, but I can't see any of them fitting on HC. It's like after OOTN both Eagles and Bernie went in near opposite directions.
