Eagles Fly High with Disco 'Nights'

Paul Gambaccini, Rolling Stone, 28 August 1975

"WE LIKE TO be a nice little country-rock band from Los Angeles... about half the time," Eagles drummer Don Henley claimed backstage after the band's mid-June performance at Wembley. "We wanted to get away from the ballad syndrome with 'One of These Nights'. With Don Felder in the band now, we can really rock. He's made us nastier and done a great guitar solo on the single."
