The Eagles: Don Felder (guitar, vocals); Glenn Frey (guitar, piano, keyboards, vocals); Joe Walsh (guitar, organ, vocals); Timothy B. Schmit (bass, vocals); Don Henley (drums, percussion, vocals). Additional personnel: Jay Oliver (keyboards); Timothy Drury (keyboards, vocals); John Corey (keyboards, guitar, vocals); Gary Grimm, Stan Lynch, Paulinho Da Costa (percussion); Scott Crago (percussion, drums). Producers: Eagles, Elliot Scheiner, Rob Jacobs (tracks 1-3, 5-15); Eagles, Stan Lynch, Rob Jacobs (track 4). Engineers: Rob Jacobs (tracks 1-4), Elliot Scheiner (tracks 5-15). Recorded at Warner Burbank Studios, Burbank, California; The Village Recorder, Los Angeles, California; Sounds Interchange, Toronto, Canada. Includes liner notes by Sal Manna. All songs written or co-written by members of The Eagles except "Love Will Keep Us Alive" (Pete Vale/Jim Capaldi/Paul Carrack). HELL FREEZES OVER features four new studio tracks along with live material from the Eagles' return concert on MTV. "Love Will Keep Us Alive" was nominated for a 1996 Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal, and "Hotel California" was nominated for Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal. HELL FREEZES OVER was nominated for Best Pop Album. In a disappointing year of virtual reality performances, the Eagles' highly touted tour of America was a triumphant affirmation of enduring pop values, from a band that literally wrote the stylistic book on the singer-songwriter/rock'n'roll synthesis during the '70s. And as a band member jokes in a droll intro to their live set, "For the record, we never broke up, we just took a 14 year vacation." So now we have one of the most anticipated reunions in rock history. Certainly the internal pressures which tore the band apart haven't been papered over, judging from post-tour statements. From the outgrowth of all that creative tension is a remarkably tight live set, and a four-song prologue of new Eagles material, all as fresh and melodious as the originals. Not surprisingly, the strongest of the new tunes, "Get Over It" and "Learn To Be Still," come from collaborations involving Don Henley. The latter a dark folkish ballad offering reassurance in the face of life's small, bitter defeats, the former a four-on-the-floor, chicken fried rocker which decries the self-victimization of Americans. And their live rendition of classic tunes really hold up: all are brimming over with elements of country, R&B and blues, sedate, funky grooves, seamless five-part harmonies and sweet soaring guitar solos and duets--all the sounds and flourishes which add up to the Eagles trademark California rock.
