  • Superb Double Plus (A++) sound or BETTER on both sides and one of the few copies to hit the site in many years!
  • Both sides have the punchy bottom, the meat on the bones, the life and energy -- everything that the typical copy was lacking
  • "... it captured the seething malevolence of Bon Scott, the sense that he reveled in doing bad things, encouraged by the maniacal riffs of Angus and Malcolm Young who provided him with their most brutish rock & roll yet." - All Music, 5 Stars

Eagles
The Long Run

  (Item #: eaglelongr_1801_1812) 

Our Price: $99.99

  • This copy has a rockin' Long Run like you have never heard, with Double Plus (A++) sound all around
  • The sound is full, rich and vibrant with impressive punch down low and relatively smooth up top
  • The best songs prove that the Eagles were still at the height of their powers in 1979
  • "Overall, The Long Run is a synthesis of previous macabre Eagles motifs, with cynical new insights that are underlined by slashing rock & roll. There's a stark simplicity to the album, especially when compared with the hyperslick Hotel California. Not a collection of hot car-radio singles. The Long Run is easily the band's most uncommercial effort." Rolling Stone

  • A triumph of engineering for Bill Halverson and Andy Johns - this and Deja Vu are both landmarks of Big Production Rock
  • 4 1/2 stars in the AMG: "Listening to this album three decades on, it's still a jaw-dropping experience, the musical equal to Crosby, Stills & Nash or Déjà Vu, and only a shade less important than either of them."

These are not the sort of Steely Dan songs favored by smooth-jazz stations."

"Born to Be Wild," their signature tune, has aged amazingly well. Aside from the song's power and performance, its engineering and production is stellar. This goes for most of Steppenwolf's catalog as well."
