Eagles: Desperado

Eagles: Desperado

Mobile Fidelity  UDSACD 2230

Stereo Hybrid



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.

How sad that the SACD does not include the excellent quadraphonic mix of this album. A wasted opportunity.

This is a MoFi product. Stereo only, as they always did. I personnally would not call a MoFi product a "wasted opportunity". They always perform an outstanding job at making music sound great and natural at the same time. Whether the mix is stero or multichannel is another matter.
