Bill Szymczyk

On Recording the Drums and Vocals for Hotel California

  (Item #: eaglehotel_drum_2015) 



Excerpted from an article by Dan Daley at Sound on Sound.

Eagles records were a benchmark for drum sounds in their time. Bill Szymczyk says he and Henley invested a lot of time experimenting with microphone choices and placements, but that most of the time they reverted to fairly common configurations. There was a lot of flavor-of-the-week with microphones back then, he says. But it would usually come back to a Shure 57 on the top of the snare, either U67 or 87s as overheads, sometimes AKG 414s.

DCC Reviewed

  (Item #: eaglehotel_debunk) 



Sonic Grade: B+/B-

The DCC -- Not Bad, But...

The DCC for this album is not a total disaster. In fact, the first side of the DCC is one of the better DCC sides we've played in recent memory. We dropped the needle on a few copies we had in the back (pressing variations exist for audiophile records too, don't you know) and they averaged about a B+ for sound on side one. Side two was quite a bit too clean for our tastes -- no real ambience or meaty texture to the guitars, about a B- for sound. To flip something we say often: you can do worse, but you can do a LOT better.

Our Shootout Winner from 2011

  (Item #: eaglehotel_2011) 



A distinguished member of the Better Records Rock and Pop Hall of Fame.

TWO SUPERB SIDES -- super transparent, super hi-rez, with tons of energy and tubey magic! We just finished a mega-shootout for this title, dropping the needle on more than a dozen copies, and this bad boy earned Best In Show. Side two earned our top A+++ grade while side one was just half a plus behind. Most copies out there won't come even close to this one on EITHER side.

Rockin' Out to Victim of Love

  (Item #: eaglehotel_wtlf) 



Victim of Love is yet another one of our favorite tracks that really comes alive when you Turn Up Your Volume.

It's the sound of this five piece tearing it up LIVE IN THE STUDIO. It's also the track where the DCC just falls apart for us. Where did the rock and roll energy go? The DCC makes it sound like the band just doesn't care, which was certainly not our experience when were playing any of the killer Hot Stampers we came across. Just the reverse was true; we had them turned up full blast and they ROCKED.
