Grammy-Winning 1975 Album Showcases Glenn Frey and Don Henley's Songwriting Superiority: Features 'Lyin Eyes,' 'Take It to the Limit,' and the Chart-Topping Title Track. Band Seamlessly Blends Folk, Country, Rock, and Blues Elements: Quadruple-Platinum Effort Marks Co-Founder Bernie Leadon's Final Appearance on an Eagles Record.
One of These Nights occupies an important, unique place in The Eagles' discography given it represents the final album the group made before releasing the bajillion-selling Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975) compilation. The timing is telling. A coming-out party for Glenn Frey and Don Henley's songwriting skills, the studio record - the band's fourth, and it's first to hit #1 on the charts - signifies the group's ascent to superstar status. Home to three massive singles (the title track, 'Lyin' Eyes,' and 'Take It to the Limit') and nominated for four Grammy Awards, the quadruple-platinum 1975 effort solidified The Eagles' Southern California-reared sound and made the band a household name. Mastered from the original analog tapes and packaged in a mini-LP gatefold jacket, Mobile Fidelity's numbered-edition hybrid SACD takes One of These Nights to the limit. And then some. Playing with reference sonics and clarity, it provides a rich, dynamic, and three-dimensional view into a release that moved country-rock ahead by leaps and bounds. The opportunity to zero in on the particulars of The Eagles' golden harmonies, distinct vocal timbres, tasteful instrumental flourishes, and cohesive interplay has never been better. Like everything about the record - including the iconic skull-and-feathers themed cover art that hinted where the band had been and where it was going - the details confirm The Eagles were breathing rare air.
