    Default New series of review articles of every Eagles album.

    Hello. I am writing a series of articles analyzing each Eagles album.
    Here is the first covering the 1972 debut album.

    "Take The Devil" is a song written and sung by Meisner. Leadon's guitar solos really shine.


    Umm, it's Glenn on lead guitar, isn't it?

    Earlybird is really a showcase for Leadon who sings lead as well as plays banjo and electric guitar.


    Glenn on electric.

    "Tryin'" is another song by Meisner, who takes on lead vocals. Once again, it is a showcase for Leadon's guitar wizardry, but it's not the strongest of tracks.

    Bernie plays the rhythm guitar part that starts the song. The rest is Glenn.

    For some reason I missed the part where you said that you were the writer, so there were some harsh words in my second post. I edited it since I don't wish to offend you.I confess that I'm a Glenn fan, so such errors are all I see.

    No offense taken. I want these articles to be as accurate as possible so I appreciate feedback.

    Yes! Yes it is...

    Glenn was never given proper props for his guitar ability. "Oh Felder must have played that. Oh Leadon must have played that. Oh Walsh must have played that.". Sometimes it's almost like I feel they are saying "Oh Glenn *couldn't* have played that". Glenn was a jack of all trades. Great singer, great frontman with charisma, great bandleader, great lyricist/arranger, great guitarist, etc.

    Hi there, Desperado73! Welcome! I didn't want to discourage you, but since you said you wanted to be accurate, please fact check your Glenn backstory. Glenn met JD after arriving in California.

    https://www.pbs.org/wnet/americanmas...interviews/676
    Also, Jackson and JD encouraged Gefffen to Glenn, there was no Eagles at that point. Geffen liked Glenn, but thought he should form a band, and would listen to whatever group he brought him.

    Thanks for posting these reviews Desperado73. Unfortunately, I have a lot going on in my life right now so I haven't had time to read any of them. I will eventually get around to it though. BTW - if you go to our hub site, EaglesOnlineCentral, you may find a lot of help with some of the album reviews. Here is the link to the Discography page:
