EDITORS’ NOTES

The 40th anniversary revamp of the Eagles' '70s landmark Hotel California offers punchy, remastered versions of classic cuts like the spooky title track and snarling "Life in the Fast Lane," alongside tracks from an L.A. Forum concert in 1976, shortly before the album's release. There's a distinct air of discovery as the band sinks its teeth into the still-fresh material, like the soulful "New Kid in Town" and guitar-dueling “Hotel California,” alongside earlier Eagles milestones like feel-good anthem "Take It Easy" and the smoldering, sensual "One of These Nights."

Hotel California (LIVE) Again?

I've been a fan since around 1983. Heard this album front to back at a party and have been a huge fan ever since. All I'm going to say is that the live tracks on this remaster should be a treat for those of us who assume we've heard this a thousand times before. At the time of this review, only "Hotel (Live)" is available for download, but it is already probably my favorite "live" version yet. It doesn't sound hurried like some others. In fact it's got a nice "groove" to it that I'm unfamiliar with on previous live versions. If the rest of the live tracks are this good, then this is a definite purchase. Give it a listen, you'll see what I mean.

The Best Classic Rock Band

I am a 16 year old fan of Classic Rock, especially The Eagles. I have all their albums from their debut Eagles to Hell Freezes Over. My favorite Eagles albums are Hotel California and On the Border, I am very happy so many songs from On the Border are on this album live. The album sounds great and I love all the live tracks of songs like Already Gone, Take it to the Limit, Take it Easy, James Dean, and Good Day in Hell. You can also hear Joe Walsh and Don Felder adding their rock roots to the songs with amazing guitar solos. The entire album is amazing, all the live songs are fantastic, and it is worth every penny. The only complaint I have is that older Eagles tunes are not added to the album. Live versions of Chug All Night, Nightingale, Take the Devil, Tryin, and Outlaw Man would make this album slightly better. This album is still amazing and every song is fantastic. It easily beats out any popular “artist” today.

Great Live Bonus, Great Remaster

Disregard the few bugs in the crowd. If you can't write two sentences without a spelling or grammar error, then you probably don't get the Eagles anyway.
