“Next, even better, came the Eagles, the epitome of easy-listening, quality country rock. Again, they played to a formula, and within certain safe perimeters, but with chugging rhythms and fine harmonies they were perfect at what they did.”

“The first LP, titled simply, ‘Eagles’, took off immediately via a great debut hit single, ‘Take It Easy’. Ironically, in Britain, where the album was made, the song was merely an underground classic. But when the Eagles opened with it at Wembley this year, there was a huge roar.”
