Offered for sale is an original Japanese pressing of the 1979 album The Long Run by the Eagles, complete with obi.
About this copy: This copy of The Long Run is an original Japanese issue, complete with lyric insert and obi. The cover is VG++, with traces of wear at the corners. It has a sticker from an import company on the back cover. The disc is M- and appears to have had very little play.
A great-sounding copy of a terrific album.
Background: The Long Run was the last original release by the Eagles, and it’s often regarded as a failure by critics. We disagree; it’s actually our favorite Eagles album, and the public apparently agreed, too: The album went seven times platinum in the U.S., reaching #1 on the charts, and put three singles in the Top 10: “I Can’t Tell You Why,” “Heartache Tonight,” and “The Long Run.”
While American pressings in the late 1970s were of so-so quality due to poor vinyl, the Japanese pressings of that time were quite good. Interestingly, the Japanese pressings of this album were pressed from American stampers, with “Sterling” stamped in the dead wax, along with the hand-etched wording “Never Let Your Monster Lay Down” on side one and “From the Polack Who Sailed North” on side two.
