This afternoon on ‘Tickets @ 2’ be listening for “Best Of My Love” by The Eagles.
This is from their On The Border album, the third album for the group, and like their first two, was recorded in London with producer Glyn Johns.
It was one of two songs that was leftover from the Glyn Johns sessions and included on On The Border, and became the Eagles first #1 hit.
J.D. Souther, who was a good friend of Glenn Frey, helped write the song along with Frey and Don Henley who sang lead. Other Eagles songs Souther contributed include “Heartache Tonight,” “New Kid In Town,” “Victim Of Love” and “James Dean.”
The distinctive steel guitar was played by Bernie Leadon.
When we play it between two and three we’ll take caller #10 at 1-800-232-KRTH (5784) to win a pair of tickets to see Journey with special guests Pat Benetar, and Loverboy Saturday July 21st at Sam Manuel Amphitheatre.
