The Eagles unveiled a remarkable live version of their classic, “Hotel California,” which will appear on the upcoming 40th anniversary deluxe edition of Hotel California, out November 24th.
The version is from the Forum in Los Angeles in October 1976, just months before the album’s release. The live rendition of “Hotel California” finds the Eagles in expert form, with electric guitar injecting a new kind of mystique into the song’s distinct opening acoustic melody.
Onstage, Don Henley’s vocals carry grit against the band’s backing harmonies, while Joe Walsh and Don Felder tear through their closing guitar duel with precision and surprising flair.
