It was 37 years ago today (January 15th, 1977), that the Eagles' album Hotel California hit Number One. The album, which was released on December 8th, 1976, was the group's third chart-topper in a row, following 1975's One Of These Nights and 1976's compilation Eagles/Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975.
Hotel California went on to top the charts for eight nonconsecutive weeks, and to date has sold over 16 million copies. Over the years, the Eagles have included most of the Hotel California album in their concert setlists, including such classic album tracks as "Wasted Time," "Victim Of Love," "and "Pretty Maids All In A Row."
This album was the soundtrack to my sophomore year in high school. Great memories of cranking up the title track and Life In The Fast Lane as we cruised the town in search of the next party!
