Although most of the band's members had come from elsewhere, the Eagles epitomized the particular 1970s L.A. rock sound with its slick production and tinges of country and folk. At the close of the twentieth century, two of the Eagles' four #1 albums--their 1975 greatest hits disk and "Hotel California"--still ranked among the ten alltime bestselling albums. Having performed in other groups and worked as backup musicians for Linda Ronstadt and Bob Seeger, the members of the Eagles came together in 1971. The group's first two albums went gold, but it wasn't until the single "The Best of My Love" reached the top of the charts in 1975 that the Eagles reached superstar status. "One of These Nights" builds on the group's signature sound and, with singles like the title song and "Lyin' Eyes," became their most successful album to date in sales.
