Taking it easy

One of my all time favourite songs is Take It Easy by  Eagles , elegantly written by Jackson Browne And Glenn Frey. It´s all quality, from the jangly guitars in the beginning to the silky vocals later on.

I can fully understand why Eagles today often are mentioned with contempt – their later output is often too cheesy and speculative. But had they only recorded one or two albums, they would be looked upon as mere gods by now. I tried to give Gram Parsons yet another chance the other day but – no, his music doesn´t do anything to me. Early Eagles, on the other hand, now that´s something else.

The recording below is from Central Park in 1972 – even though the screen is dark for a while in the beginning, your wait will be rewarded. Splendid!
