EDITORS’ NOTES

In 1978, The Eagles released this single of seasonal cheer. It was their first release with new bassist Timothy B. Schmit, who'd continue with the band on The Long Run. "Please Come Home for Christmas" had been written by bluesman Charles Brown, who'd released his version in 1960; his single was often heard around the holidays. The Eagles' version reached No. 18 in the U.S. and was reissued as a CD single in 1990. "Funky New Year," the b-side written by the band's Glenn Frey and Don Henley, became a coveted rarity and an important piece of their Millennium Concert at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, in which they rang in the year 2000 with a spirited version of the song.

Great Sound

This is a stellar remake of the original Please Come Home for Christmas. It is my favorite christmas song along with Happy Xmas by John Lennon. The Eagles really did a great job here and this two track EP is definitely worth the two bucks, or just get Please Come Home For Christmas.
