THE Ea­gles’ Ho­tel California is be­ing re-re­leased as a deluxe 40th anniversary edi­tion that will in­clude newly re­mas­tered sound and 10 pre­vi­ously un­re­leased live record­ings. The al­bum was a crit­i­cal and com­mer­cial phe­nom­e­non when it was re­leased in De­cem­ber 1976 and topped the Bill­board charts for eight weeks in the US. Ho­tel California won two Grammy Awards and sold more than 32 mil­lion copies around the world. Four decades later, it still ranks as one of the best-sell­ing al­bums of all time. The al­bum set, pre­sented in an 11 x 11 hard­bound book, also fea­tures rare and un­seen pho­tos from the era, a replica tour book, and an 11 x 22 poster, a re­lease said. The col­lec­tion will be avail­able on Novem­ber 24. The con­cert record­ings — which were recorded about a month be­fore the al­bum came out — fea­ture one of the first ever live per­for­mances of Ho­tel

California and New Kid In Town along with other Ea­gles clas­sics in­clud­ing Al­ready Gone, Take It To the Limit, and Witchy Woman. The re­turned to stage this sum­mer at the Clas­sic East/West fes­ti­vals. The band has planned more tour date and the mem­bers be joined on stage once again by coun­try su­per­star Vince Gill and Dea­con Frey, son of Ea­gles founder, Glenn Frey.
