The Eagles

At the end of this month Rhino will reissue the first six albums by the Eagles on vinyl in a special box set, and we have one that you can win. This includes the run of records from their eponymous debut through Hotel California and ending up at The Long Run. The set, which is limited to 5000 copies, also comes with a Hotel California poster that was formerly only available in original pressings of the album:

The Eagles’ original Asylum Records studio albums, including each of the chart-topping albums the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers released between 1972 and 1979, will be released on 180-gram vinyl in THE STUDIO ALBUMS 1972-1979, a limited-edition, six-LP boxed set available October 29.

THE STUDIO ALBUMS 1972-1979 includes each of the six Eagles albums that defined an era. Each LP features replicas of the original album packaging with two special artwork upgrades – the sleeve of the debut album, EAGLES, will finally be released as the band originally intended, with no glue flaps, so the cover folds out into a poster, as described in this year’s acclaimed documentary History of the Eagles. HOTEL CALIFORNIA will include a replica of the poster from the original issue with band photos by Norman Seeff in full color, for the first time. THE STUDIO ALBUMS 1972-1979 is limited to 5,000 copies and comes housed in an individually numbered slipcase with a gold foil stamp of the band’s logo.
