The Eagles have been hailed by many as the greatest American band, and their songs endure and will continue to endure for generations to follow.
Hotel California is one of the greatest albums ever made. There’s a reason why ‘New Kid in Town’ won a Grammy. The deep cuts – the ones that don’t get radio play – those are the ones that are like finding gold on a beach. ‘Wasted Time’ is the ultimate heartache song. ‘Pretty Maids All in A Row’ is Joe Walsh’s tour de force and ‘The Last Resort’ should be taught in schools.
We all have our personal image of what the Hotel California looks like. We can see ourselves in the lobby, we know what the staff looks like. We feel the vibe. That’s the secret ingredient in making a Classic Album – being able to insert yourself into the album.
Classic Albums Live is simple in its quest: note for note – cut for cut. When you have amazing songs, a perfect album and a deep love of music – there’s nothing else needed. ‘Hotel California’ features CAL at its best. We plan to continue to pay this great work of art the ultimate respect.
Classic Albums Live is at The Harbourfront on Wednesday, April 5th, at 7:30 PM.
