on November 24
Landmark Album Is Remastered And Expanded For The First Time
2-CD/1-Blu-ray Audio Collection Featuring Previously Unreleased Live Recordings
The Eagles’ Hotel California was a critical and commercial phenomenon when it was released in December 1976. The album topped theBillboard charts for eight weeks in the U.S., won two GRAMMY® Awards, sold more than 32 million copies around the world, and featured two Billboard #1 hit singles. 40 years later, it still ranks as one of the best-selling albums of all time.
Next month, the milestone album will add to its legendary lore with Hotel California: 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition, a new 2-CD/1-Blu-ray Audio that includes remastered sound, ten previously unreleased live recordings, as well as hi-res stereo and 5.1 mixes. Presented in an 11 x 11 hardbound book, the set also features rare and unseen photos from the era, a replica tour book, and an 11 x 22 poster. Available for preorder now, the collection will be available on November 24, along with a 2-CD Expanded Edition, 1-CD Edition, plus digital download and streaming versions.
Hotel California: 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition opens with a remastered version of the original album, featuring two Billboard #1 singles — New Kid In Town and the title track — plus the smash hit Life In the Fast Lane. The album was nominated for five GRAMMY® Awards, and won for “Record of the Year” and “Best Arrangement For Voices.”
The set also marks the debut of ten live tracks that were recorded during the band’s three-night stand at the Los Angeles Forum in October 1976. The concert recordings — which were recorded about a month before the album came out — feature one of the first ever live performances of Hotel California and New Kid In Town along with other Eagles classics including Already Gone, Take It To the Limit, and Witchy Woman.
The Blu-ray Audio disc that accompanies Hotel California: 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition features the 5.1 Surround Sound mix originally released on DVD-A in 2001 along with a hi-resolution, 192 KHz/24-Bit stereo mix.
