In The playthrough we look at One Of These Nights by the Eagles.
One of These Nights is the last Eagles album to feature guitarist Bernie Leadon; who was later replaced by Joe Walsh. Leadon left the band after the One Of These Nights tour.
One of These Nights is the fourth studio album by the Eagles, released in 1975. The record's title song became the group's second No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100, in July of that year. The album yielded three Top 10 singles, "One of These Nights", "Lyin' Eyes", and "Take It to the Limit". Those singles reached No. 1, No. 2, and No. 4 respectively. The album became the band's first to top the charts. It sold 4 million copies and was nominated for Album of the Year. A single from the album, "Lyin' Eyes" was also nominated for Record of the Year, and won for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals.
Quote from Bernie Leadon "If you listen to the solo on One Of These Nights, it's almost like an alto sax. I try to play memorable melodies that you can sing. If you play too much, too fast, it's too much to remember. You can't sing Steve Vai. But if you play simply enough and clearly enough, you can recognize it, remember it, sing it and relate to it. On all of my solos, I don't try to be flashy, I try to be memorable."
Well he sure did on this one.
