Eagles is the debut studio album by American rock group Eagles, originally released in June 1972 via Asylum Records.
The Eagles produced an impressive, diverse, and sonically superior debut album in 1972, launching a successful elevation throughout the rest of the decade. The album was was an immediate commercial and critical success. The album is extraordinarily balanced with all four band members writing and singing lead vocals on several tracks, with a mixture of rock, folk, and country, throughout musically.
Despite the quick recording of this debut, it is amazingly polished and has a remarkable level of pop sensibility. It spawned three top 40 hit singles, all which remain very popular to this day, while much of the rest of the album contains well-constructed songs with incredible vocal harmonies by all four band members.
The members of the Eagles that recorded the album were:
- Don Felder – vocals, guitars
- Glenn Frey – vocals, guitars, keyboards
- Don Henley – vocals, drums
- Randy Meisner – vocals, bass
While the singles may be the ones that are best remembered from the album, the balance of the whole album and the interplay of the various members was what really stands out on this brilliant debut.
