Shop for Eagles vinyl at Goldmine's store.
On June 10th, 1975, the Eagles dropped their fourth studio album, One of These Nights. The release, which contained a trio of hit singles including “Take It to the Limit,” “Lyin’ Eyes” and the excellent title track, quickly climbed the charts and became the band’s first No. 1 record on the Billboard album charts.
One of These Nights’ massive commercial success — and the Eagles’ extensive touring to support it — helped catapult the group to worldwide stardom. To this day, the record remains a favorite of fans (including Goldmine readers, who voted it the group’s second-best album of all time.)
On March 21st, 1977, while touring for One of These Nights’ follow-up, Hotel California, the band descended on the Capital Centre in Largo, Maryland, where they unleashed a simply breathtaking version of “Lyin’ Eyes.” Upon its original release in 1975, the song — which was penned by singer-guitarist Glenn Frey and singer-drummer Don Henley — earned the group a Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Performance. See why in the magical live performance (and harmonizing!) above.
