EDITORS’ NOTES

The Eagles' 1972 debut established Don Henley, Glenn Frey, Bernie Leadon, and Randy Meisner as Southern California's breeziest country-rockers. Powered by a trio of enduring soft-rock staples—Frey's sunny Jackson Browne collaboration, "Take It Easy"; the swampy "Witchy Woman"; and the mellow "Peaceful Easy Feeling"—the album unfurls with an airy charm. Twangy guitars and supple, four-part harmonies set a laidback mood until Meisner's “Tryin’,” a swaggering rocker with a stinging guitar solo, closes the album on an energetic high.
