Eagles: Hotel California
Mobile Fidelity UDSACD 2233
THE THIRD BEST-SELLING ALBUM IN HISTORY RECEIVES A SUBSTANTIAL UPGRADE: SOURCED FROM THE ORIGINAL ANALOG MASTER TAPES
The moment the instantly recognizable intertwined guitar passage on the title track to the Eagles' Hotel California begins, the record's genius becomes obvious all over again. Ranked the 118th Greatest Album of All Time by Rolling Stone, certified by RIAA as the third best-selling LP in history, and looked upon as the foundation upon which the Golden State's mid-'70s rustic music scene was built, the 1976 landmark is a music staple immune to shifts in trends, eras, and styles. Fearlessly addressing the chaos and consequences of American life, its songs remain strikingly prescient and gain credence with each passing day.

Hi Paul, as at this point this SACD has not hit the shelves yet. It is still a preorder over at the MoFi site.

Just received my copy, direct from MOFI, a week ago. Well, they have done their usual incredible "treatment" to one of the very best classic rock albums of all time! I own the other 2 audiophile versions of this album. The Japanese SACD and the 40th anniversary Blu-ray audio edition. They are all excellent. But, after listening to all 3 versions back to back to back, my ranking would be as follows. The MOFI SACD #1, The Japanese SACD a very close #2, and the Blu-ray Audio a little bit of a distant #3.I only use headphones due to living in an apartment. My setup is the Sennheiser HD800S, and their dedicated headphone amplifier, the incredible HDV820. If you have a spare $4,000.00 that you want to use to get a GREAT headphone setup, BUY THIS COMBO, NOW! And no, I don't work for Sennheiser in any way. Have worked my way up to the current setup, over the last 40 years of owning various exclusively Sennheiser "cans". SACD's really bring out the very best of this Sennheiser setup. MOFI's Hotel California is no exception.
