Hi it’s Lindsey giving you a heads up that the 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of Hotel California is being released on Nov. 24. If you’ve got an Eagles fan on your Christmas list, this would be an awesome gift…hint, hint!
The new 2-CD/1-Blu-ray Audio includes remastered sound, 10 previously unreleased live recordings, plus hi-res stereo and 5.1 mixes. Presented in an 11 x 11 hardbound book, the set also features rare and unseen photos from the era, a replica tour book, and an 11 x 22 poster. A 2-CD Expanded Edition and single CD will also be available.
The Deluxe Edition opens with a remastered version of the original album, featuring those two #1 hits – “New Kid In Town” and the title track – plus “Life In the Fast Lane,” a #11 single. The album was nominated for five GRAMMY® Awards, winning a Record of the Year and Best Arrangement for Voices.
There are obviously so many great songs on the album, but “Life in the Fast Lane” remains one of my favorites. Enjoy this live version while appreciating the amazing guitar work of Joe Walsh.
And while we’re talking Eagles, are you going to one of these shows? Good for you (and a bit jealous too!).
