In 1973, The Eagles released their second album - an album that provided them with their signature tune and announced the arrival of a major new talent in the field of country rock music. In this unique re-appraisal of one of the seminal works of the genre, the legendary broadcaster Bob Harris takes us back in time to Los Angeles in the seventies - the place and time that provided the backdrop for the The Eagles' sound. The much respected presenter of 'The Old Grey Whistle Test' brings his unique insight into the reasons that songs steeped in the sound of the dry and dusty American west somehow came to travel the world. In addition, the programme features analysis by a team of respected music journalists and rock critics, who highlight the strengths of an album featuring such peerless tracks as 'Tequila Sunrise', 'Outlaw' and the much-covered title song. The key tunes are analysed and deconstructed to explain why they have achieved classic status. These standout features are complemented by superb performance footage of the band in their seventies heyday plus informative interviews with author and journalist Barney Hoskyns. There are also outstanding contributions by Peter Doggett, author of 'Are You Ready For The Country' and biographer Johnny Rogan.
