Wednesday 11pm: Feature LP: Eagles Live (1980)

Eagles Live is the first live album by the American rock band Eagles, a two-LP set released on November 7, 1980. The Eagles was already breaking up after an argument between bandmates Glenn Frey and Don Felder on July 31, 1980, however, the band owed Elektra/Asylum Records one more album, and they fulfilled that obligation with a release of performances from the Hotel California and The Long Run tours.

Eagles Live was mixed by Frey and Don Henley on opposite coasts in Los Angeles and Miami, respectively, and as producer Bill Szymczyk put it, the record’s harmony and instrument fixes were made “courtesy of Federal Express.” The 1983 Rolling Stone Record Guide said it is “perhaps the most heavily overdubbed [live album] in history.” “Seven Bridges Road,” a Steve Young cover, was released as a single and became a top-40 hit.

On the Border is the third studio album by American rock group the Eagles, released in 1974. Apart from two songs produced by Glyn Johns, it was produced by Bill Szymczyk because the group wanted a more rock‑oriented sound instead of the country-rock feel of the first two albums. It is the first Eagles album to feature guitarist Don Felder. On the Border reached number 17 on the Billboard album chart and has sold two million copies.

Three singles were released from the album: “Already Gone”, “James Dean” and “Best of My Love”. The singles peaked at numbers 32, 77 and 1 respectively. “Best of My Love” became the band’s first of five chart toppers. The album also includes “My Man”, Bernie Leadon’s tribute to his deceased friend Gram Parsons. Leadon and Parsons had played together in the pioneer country rock band Flying Burrito Brothers, before Leadon joined the Eagles.

This is the first album by the Eagles to be released in Quadraphonic surround sound. It was released on Quadraphonic 8-track tape and CD-4 LP. A hidden message carved into the run out groove of some vinyl LPs reads: “He who hesitates is lunch”. – Wikipedia

One of These Nights is the fourth studio album by the Eagles, released in 1975. The record would become the Eagles’ first number one album on Billboard’s album chart in July that year, and yielded three Top 10 singles, “One of These Nights”, “Lyin’ Eyes” and “Take It to the Limit”. Its title song is the group’s second number one single on the Billboard Hot 100. The album sold four million copies and was nominated for Grammy Album of the Year. A single from the album, “Lyin’ Eyes”, was also nominated for Record of the Year, and won the Eagles’ first Grammy for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals.

One of These Nights is the last Eagles album to feature guitarist Bernie Leadon, who left the band after the One Of These Nights tour and was replaced by Joe Walsh. The seventh track, “Visions”, is the only Eagles song on which lead guitarist Don Felder sang the lead vocals, despite his desire to write and sing more songs. The album was the band’s commercial breakthrough, transforming them into international superstars. They went on a worldwide tour to promote the album. – Wikipedia

Paul Carrack Singles 10:30pm ET

pcarrackPaul Melvyn Carrack (born 22 April 1951) is an English singer, songwriter and musician who has recorded as both a solo artist and as a member of several popular bands. The BBC dubbed Carrack “The Man with the Golden Voice”, and described him as “something of a national treasure”. William Pinfold of Record Collector remarked: “If vocal talent equaled financial success, Paul Carrack would be a bigger name than legends such as Phil Collins or Elton John.”

Carrack arose to prominence in the mid-1970s as the front-man and principal songwriter of Ace, and gained further recognition for his work as a solo artist and for his tenures as a member of Roxy Music, Squeeze and Roger Waters’ backing group, The Bleeding Heart Band, intermittently handling lead vocals on Squeeze and Waters recordings. From the mid-1980s to the late 1990s, he enjoyed considerable success as the co-front-man (with Paul Young) and a songwriter for Mike + The Mechanics; following Young’s death in 2000, Carrack served as the band’s sole lead vocalist until his departure in 2004. He maintains an active solo career to the present day.

Carrack sang some of his affiliated bands’ best-known hits, including Ace’s “How Long?”; Squeeze’s “Tempted”; and Mike + The Mechanics’ “Silent Running”, “The Living Years” and “Over My Shoulder”. He also performed lead vocals on tracks from the Roger Waters albums Radio K.A.O.S. and The Wall – Live in Berlin, and achieved a major solo hit with “Don’t Shed a Tear”. Carrack’s songs have been recorded by artists such as the Eagles, Diana Ross, Tom Jones, Michael McDonald and Jools Holland, and he has served as a session and/or touring musician for the likes of Elton John, Eric Clapton, Ringo Starr, B.B. King, The Pretenders and The Smiths. – Wikipedia
