- A vintage copy with a rockin’ “Long Run” like you have never heard, earning killer Nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) grades on both sides, just shy of our Shootout Winner – fairly quiet vinyl too
- The sound is full, rich and vibrant with impressive punch down low and nice extension up top
- The best songs prove that the Eagles were still at the height of their powers, at least some of the time…
- The first two songs on both sides are practically as good as it gets for mainstream rock from this era – they’re playlist staples of Classic Rock stations from coast to coast to this day
- “The Long Run is a chilling and altogether brilliant evocation of Hollywood’s nightly Witching Hour, that nocturnal feeding frenzy first detailed by Warren Zevon on his haunting Asylum debut (Warren Zevon, 1976) and the equally powerful Excitable Boy.” – Rolling Stone
The last song on side two, “The Sad Cafe,” is also standout. Others, as they used to say in school, ‘need improvement.’
But five Killer Eagles songs is nothing to sneeze at. This is an album that belongs in your collection, even if you choose to only listen to the best material on it.
