Rhino releases Eagles ‘Live at the Forum 76’ on vinyl
The album debuts on vinyl on November 12
To celebrate the Eagles’ return to their famous 2021 Hotel California tour, Rhino is set to release Live at Forum ’76, with 10 songs recorded in the fall of 1976, just before the release of California Hotel. The set will be available on November 12 in 2 LP on 180 gram vinyl. The tracks will debut on vinyl, as they were previously only available on CD and digitally as part of 2017. Hotel California: 40th anniversary edition. Live music occupies three sides of the LP while the last features an exclusive engraving of the artwork.
The ensemble was recorded during the group’s three nights at the Los Angeles Forum in October 1976. The show took place as the group was putting the finishing touches to California Hotel, which will be released in December. The concert recording captures some of the very first live performances of “Hotel California” and “New Kid In Town”.
During the show, the band also played hits from previous albums with “Take It Easy” from the band’s eponymous debut album in 1972; “Already gone” from the years 1974 At the border; and the title song # 1 from the 1975s One of those nights. The concert also includes a raucous performance of “Funk # 49”, a song originally recorded by James Gang of Walsh.
The Forum concert features a snapshot of the band just before California Hotel has become a critical and commercial phenomenon. After its release, the album topped the charts for eight weeks in the United States, featured two No.1 singles (“New Kid In Town” and “Hotel California”) and won two GRAMMY Awards. Today, Hotel California has been certified 26x Platinum by the RIAA and is the third best-selling American album in history and one of the best-selling albums of all time.
In related news, Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab (MoFi) is launching an unprecedented series that will feature the six iconic 70s Eagles studio albums in the Footprint’s UltraDisc One-Step format, the world’s best-sounding vinyl records, as well as the SACD. The Mobile Fidelity UltraDisc One-Step 180g 45RPM 2 LP Ultra-Hi-Fi Collector’s Edition pays homage to the importance of both albums and enhances the experience for generations to come.
