Eagles – Desperado (Numbered Hybrid SACD)
Eagles’ Desperado Mastered from the Original Analog Master Tapes: Mobile Fidelity Numbered-Edition Hybrid SACD Sounds Lively, Present, Detailed, Rich, and Dynamic
Western-Themed 1973 Album Pioneered Country Rock and Don Henley-Glenn Frey’s Decades-Spanning Songwriting Partnership: Includes “Tequila Sunrise,” “Saturday Night,” and the Title Track
Desperado seams to speak to a universally human theme – the notion that at heart we are all drifters, always searching in life for ever-elusive goals such as stability, companionship, belonging, and satisfaction. Marrying cohesive western-themed arrangements to conceptual narrative devices, the Eagles’ 1973 album also hits on a tried-and-true American principle: The West, and the freedom, promise, and danger it has represented throughout U.S. history. Ambitious yet accessible, deep but direct, Desperado remains a towering influence on country rock and a crucial piece of the Eagles’ development and evolution.
Mastered from the original analog master tapes, Mobile Fidelity’s numbered-edition hybrid SACD pays tribute to the record’s significance and enhances the experience for generations to come. Playing with reference sonics that elevate an effort forever held dear by audiophiles, it provides a lively, dynamic, transparent, balanced, and intimate view of a release whose contemporary importance continues to grow. The opportunity to zero in on the particulars of the Eagles’ golden harmonies, distinct vocal timbres, and interplay between acoustic and electric instruments has never been better.
