There are quite a few albums I'd argue are the best of the 1970s. Hotel California is not one of them.

lindalouwho: There are quite a few albums I'd argue are the best of the 1970s. Hotel California is not one of them.


The Eagles' debut album is pretty great, as is their follow-up, Desperado. Greatest of the 70s? No. But pretty great, still. (Mainly because they still had Randy Meisner and Bernie Leadon).

It was the things we were doing during that period while listening to the 8 track.

If the song "Hotel California" never existed, would people still bag on the Eagles as much as they do? I submit that Eagles fatigue is 85% attributable to that one song being so egregiously overplayed.

By sales and content: Tapestry by Carole King.


Snow is cold
Rain feels wet
Chills my soul right to the marrow
I won't be happy til I see you alone again
Home again and feeling right

All of the above and a few others are great. As the old folks used to say, they just don't make 'em like they used to.

I would listen to "this is a fishing pole he threw it right in the water" before Hotel California.

Although, it's true that cocaine Eagles are best Eagles.

People would still hate the Eagles. See the Bono thread. Once you think you're big enough to think you can tell people what issues they should care about, you are an easy, and deserving, target.

/ in the immortal words of Denis Leary: Don Henley's gonna tell me how to vote. I don't farking think so, ok? I got two words for Don Henley, Joe farking Walsh, ok!? Thanks for calling, Don! How long's your pony tail now? Ok!

There are many albums in this thread that I'd put ahead of HC... & I like The Eagles...

I was about to yell and holler about Electric Ladyland but it was released in '68. And scrolling down this thread, yeah, Songs in the Key of Life is my favorite. Lots and lots of good music to pick from though!

My father in law knows I appreciate vinyl and have a record collection. For xmas I saw a package that was clearly a few albums wrapped up. I started unwrapping with excitement....until I realized I'd been gifted Hotel California and Seals and Croft's greatest hits.

How is one supposed to react to that? I just hummed summer breeze and went to get a cup of coffee.

There can only be one #1 and that is The Allman Brothers Band At Fillmore East. Everything else is just jockeying for #2.
