Released:
Label: Rhino/Elektra
The thought of an Eagles album underperforming commercially seems downright bizarre, yet the band's second full-length did exactly that upon release in 1973. Unlike its breezy predecessor, Desperado is moody and ruminative and lacks anything as immediately catchy as "Take It Easy." The title track, now an Eagles classic, wasn't even considered for single release. Note how the outlaw mythology that permeates the band's look and lyrics is deeply inspired by Chicago outfit Mason Proffit, who began exploring similar ideas as early as their 1969 debut.
