This one comes oh so close to that classic status. Maybe the fact that it is a little bit too commerical holds it back. Like one other reviewer already stated, the album oriented tracks(Hollywood Waltz, Visions, After The Thrill Is Gone, I Wish You Peace) are actually better than the three overplayed hits. I would buy this one third after On The Border and Hotel California.

The Eagles exploded on the charts in 1975 withOne of These Nights, the first of four straight albums by the band to reach No. 1. The album was their most varied to date, with the discofied title track, the stately waltz "Take It To the Limit," and the tough, cynical country rocker "Lyin' Eyes." The album contains a couple of unusual numbers as well, including Bernie Leadon's psychedelic banjo showcase "Journey of the Sorcerer" and "I Wish You Peace," which Leadon wrote with his then-girlfriend, future first daughter (by virtue of her parents, Ron and Nancy Reagan) and nude model (courtesy ofPlayboy), Patti Davis.--Daniel Durchholz
