Background: Hotel California was the fifth album by the Eagles, and their most successful studio album, reaching #4 in the UK and #1 in the U.S., where it has sold some 26 million copies.
The Eagles took 18 months between their fourth and fifth albums, reportedly spending eight months in the studio recording Hotel California. The album was also their first to be made without Bernie Leadon, who had given the band much of its country flavor, and with rock guitarist Joe Walsh. As a result, the album marks a major leap for the Eagles from their earlier work, as well as a stylistic shift toward mainstream rock. An even more important aspect, however, is the emergence of Don Henley as the band’s dominant voice, both as a singer and a lyricist. …. The result was the Eagles’ biggest-selling regular album release, and one of the most successful rock albums ever.
