The Long Run
Among the most anticipated albums of the 1970s, THE LONG RUN was Eagles' follow-up to HOTEL CALIFORNIA, and three years after that multi-platinum smash the band had checked out – but not quite left – the disillusionment that haunted its hallways. There's a dark, urban edge to songs like “King Of Hollywood,” “Those Shoes” and closing track “The Sad Café,” though THE LONG RUN also includes a trio of Top Ten singles to keep the mood from getting too dour: “Heartache Tonight,” “I Can't Tell You Why” and the title track. The Asylum album was another hit – it started a nine week run atop the U.S. chart on this day in 1979, eventually going 7-times platinum. Superbly crafted, THE LONG RUN brought a graceful close to both the decade defined by the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers and the first chapter of their still-ongoing career.
