Eagles Fly on The Drive
Posted:Wednesday, 05/01/2013 at 04:05am by Greg Easterling
We began a full week of late night vinyl early Monday morning with the Eagles' classic 1972 debut, an appealing blend of rock, country and acoustic music following the trail previously blazed by bands like the Byrds, Poco and the Flying Burrito Brothers featuring Gram Parsons.

Given the eventual ironclad control of the band by Don Henley and Glenn Frey, the first album was a remarkably democratic effort with all four band members(including Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner) well represented with lead vocals and songwriting credits. They also reached outside the band for great songs written by pal Jackson Browne, original Byrd Gene Clark, and Jack Tempchin. We listened to Side 1 which leads off the album with the great 1-2 combo of "Take It Easy" and "Witchy Woman".
