The First Reissue Arrives on August 15
The Eagles are prepping the reissues of their six Seventies albums via Rhino Entertainment. With the help of the technology at Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab, these records will be available on “UltraDisc One-Step” format, which is different from others because of the way they are pressed. It skips the standard three-step lacquer process, which results in better and higher sound quality.
Starting off with the first two LPs – 1972’s The Eagles and 1973’s Desperado, the former arrives on August 15, while the latter is slated for release on September 15. Both of these are limited to only 7,500 copies. These will be followed by On the Border, One of These Nights, Hotel California, and The Long Run.
“These records are classic for a reason, and they deserve to be presented in the best possible formats,” catalogue curator, Richard F.W. Davis, said in a press release. “The MoFi process, with its purist high-fidelity approach to committing the original tapes to disc, represents a way of going beyond the standard vinyl to bring a truer experience to the listener.”
Meanwhile, the band’s rescheduled Hotel California tour kicks of on August 22 for a pair of shows at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. Their concerts require proof of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test.
