TJR says

Debut album from the Los Angeles soft-rock quartet, all recorded in London, with hand-picked producer Glyn Johns who had The Rolling Stones, The Who and Led Zeppelin on his CV. He gets much of the credit for “the country-rock band with those high-flyin’ harmonies” quote which was banded about in bios and reviews of the day. They lined up: Glenn Frey (vocals, guitars, slide guitar), Don Henley (vocals, drums), Bernie Leadon (vocals, guitars, banjo) and Randy Meisner (vocals, bass guitar). It was very well received, with all three singles charting in the US Top 30; “Take It Easy” (#12), “Witchy Woman” (#9) and “Peaceful Easy Feeling” (#22). Horrible to my ears from beginning to end.
