One of These Nights Tracklist:
This album has three big hits (title track, Lyin’ Eyes, Take It To the Limit) and all the remaining tracks are good, too. As another reviewer noted, the writing is spread among all of the band members. The album is interesting because the Henley/Frey songs, as well as Randy Meisner’s “Too Many Hands” all point towards the cynical view of the ‘70s Southern California lifestyle that would be refined on the next album, while the other songs point back at the lighter country rock of the first few albums. A classic album!
I didn’t actually buy the album off of iTunes. My parents already had the CD, so I imported it to my iTunes account. I’d listen to it occasionally for the last few years, mostly just “Lyin’ Eyes” and “Take It To The Limit.” But a few weeks ago, I got into the famous British science fiction comedy franchise “The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy.” As it turns out, the theme song for the franchise is the Eagles song, “Journey of the Sorcerer,” which originated on this very album. Now I listen to that song as much as possible, and I can’t get it out of my head! So yeah, this album is awesome in many ways. Would definitely recommend to any fan of great music or science fiction.
This was one of the first records I bought with my own money. This was a work where the production quality, the musicianship, and songwriting art came together and made something that stands up to anything done since 1975.

"I wish you peace, when times are hard, a light to guide you in the dark.” This is a Must Have…
