"Eagles"

Bringing The California Country Folk That The Eagles Were First Known For, ‘Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975’ Is A 70s Dope Smokin’ Trip.

I didn’t really get the gypsy Laurel Canyon vibe associated with LA, even having grown up in California and LA for much of my life – but of course, I matured to appreciate all styles eventually – which is part of growing wise I think, and I want to say my first actual foot in the door to this vibe was by way of Neil Young’s 1972 Folk Rock album Harvest. For many years, I played the shit out of that album, and though I was introduced also to The Grateful Dead, I felt their music meandered too much and I simply could not get down with it (to this day), and then there was The Eagles recommendation, who, as successful as they are (4th highest selling band in U.S. history), I never saw them as better than the arguably similar Soft Folky groove of Fleetwood Mac. So yeah, my money is still on Mac, but as a result of my likes and dislikes being set for quite some time, I have to admit, I guess I went out of my way to not dig The Eagles it would seem – especially because I really disliked their Hard Rock and Arena Rock catalogue, with one infernal song somehow ordained to be the one song that rules them all; “Hotel California.” How many times have I told friends and strangers alike, ‘If I hear this song one more time I’m going to…”. But thanks to the Rock gods, I found a best of album that, to my shock and surprise, did not contain “Hotel California” on it. This was enough to give it an A rating without even hearing the album. Just kidding – I listened to the album, and was pleasantly surprised that it consisted of some solid songwriting and bumping instrumentation that takes me to a place and time I never lived – another dimension if you will, where Los Angeles bands were not city dwellers at all but rather, hippy cowboys who could ‘go their own way’, as Fleetwood Mac famously sang. Which is interesting for me because their song came out in 1977 and so did The Eagles’ “Hotel California”, and they are both my most disliked songs from both bands – as I find them extremely corny versions of the cooler Rock that they were doing - overly commercial and written with a success in mind, that which they would inevitably garner over the coming decades.

About

The Eagles are an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1971. The founding members were Glenn Frey (guitars, vocals), Don Henley (drums, vocals), Bernie Leadon (guitars, vocals) and Randy Meisner (bass guitar, vocals). With five number-one singles, six Grammy Awards, five American Music Awards, and six number-one albums, the Eagles were one of the most successful musical acts of the 1970s. At the end of the 20th century, two of their albums, Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) and Hotel California, were ranked among the 20 best-selling albums in the United States according to the Recording Industry Association of America. By 2006, both albums were among the top three best-selling albums in the United States. Hotel California is ranked 37th in Rolling Stone's list of "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time" and the band was ranked number 75 on the magazine's 2004 list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time.
