A nice (and great sounding) copy of a classic LP.
Background: Released in 1973, Desperado was the second LP by the Eagles.
It sold relatively poorly on release, and the two singles (“Tequila Sunrise” and “Outlaw Man”) reached #64 and #59, respectively, on the U.S. singles chart. The album has since sold well enough to be certified double platinum by the RIAA.
If Don Henley was the sole member of the Eagles underrepresented on their debut album, Eagles, with only two lead vocals and one co-songwriting credit, he made up for it on their follow-up, the “concept” album Desperado. The concept had to do with Old West outlaws, but it had no specific narrative. …The result was an album that was simultaneously more ambitious and serious-minded than its predecessor and also slighter and less consistent.
