If ever a group of musicians had a clear vision of where they wanted to go and how to get there, it was these southern California boys who built a steady rolling FM hit factory on basic tenets of Gram Parsons's invention of country-rock. For their second album, the group decided concept was most important and set out to portray themselves as keepers of the old West--their outlaw image a natural for those born unto rock and roll soil. The hits are lazy, decadent, and unrepentant; "Tequila Sunrise" and the title track, feature the flawless harmonies and strong vocals of Glenn Frey and Don Henley. --Rob O'Connor

excellent sound. This is one of the quietest record that I have. Generally, the Eagles record sound excellent. I have both greatest hits, Hotel California, On the Border, Desperado and Hell Freezes Over. They all sounds wonderful. However, this is the second Desperado that I got from Amazon. The first one clicked and crackled as soon as the first song was playing. Luckily, I made the right decision to request for a replacement and Amazon has been very generous about it. So, if you like the Eagles, I would highly recommend the album. Greatest hits is great, but listening to a whole album gives a better representation of the band in general. This one is no exception.
"Desperado" is my all-time favorite Eagles record. Every song on here is a winner, and could have very easily been a radio hit in the early 70s'. The song writing on this album is also first-rate and it shows just how talented the guys in this band would become. Songs like "Outlaw Man", "Outta Control", "Doolin' Dalton" and "Desperado" are highlights, however, you'd be hard-pressed to find any duds on this baby.
This album is absolutely terrific as it was, but when it was remastered and re-released it made an awesome record even better! I suggest if you like the Eagles, or anything from the 70s' you give this album a shot. No way you won't love this monster the whole way through!
