T he heartache was over; the Eagles were back. No postcards from the Hotel, just a Christmas card, and then their long-awaited followup delivered the goods again, beginning with the advance single “Heartache Tonight.” This is country pop with some disco sensibilities (check out the Queen-inspired drumbeat) and a side order of slide guitar from Joe Walsh. The B side is the dark “Teenage Jail,” featuring a synthesizer solo straight outta Utopia and the ever-focused Don Felder on lead guitar. The A side was later matched with “The Long Run” as a timeless twofer.
