THE STUDIO ALBUMS 1972-1979 Limited Edition Boxed Set Features Six 180-Gram LPs

The Eagles' original Asylum Records studio albums, including each of the chart-topping albums the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers released between 1972 and 1979, will be released on 180-gram vinyl in THE STUDIO ALBUMS 1972-1979, a limited-edition, six-LP boxed set available October 29.

THE STUDIO ALBUMS 1972-1979 includes each of the six Eagles albums that defined an era. Each LP features replicas of the original album packaging with two special artwork upgrades - the sleeve of the debut album, EAGLES, will finally be released as the band originally intended, with no glue flaps, so the cover folds out into a poster, as described in this year's acclaimed documentary History of the Eagles. HOTEL CALIFORNIA will include a replica of the poster from the original issue with band photos by Norman Seeff in full color, for the first time. THE STUDIO ALBUMS 1972-1979 is limited to 5,000 copies and comes housed in an individually numbered slipcase with a gold foil stamp of the band's logo.

THE STUDIO ALBUMS kicks off with the band's eponymous 1972 debut, the first of two Eagles albums produced by Glyn Johns. The disc spawned the hits "Witchy Woman," "Take It Easy" and "Peaceful Easy Feeling," and is followed by the band's second album, DESPERADO, which features the iconic title track and "Tequila Sunrise."
