1978: Please Come Home For Christmas
For their one and only yuletide release, The Eagles chose a cover of Charles Brown’s 1960 classic Please Come Home For Christmas. The Eagles’ rendition is smooth and moody, retaining the blues flavour of Brown’s original. The Eagles back the single with their original Funky New Year; a more upbeat and rocking B-side to the bluesy title track. Please Come Home For Christmas was released by the band as a gift to their fans who were hankering for new Eagles music after almost two years of going without. The single was re-released on CD in the nineties, but still manages to be one of those elusive albums that are hard to get your hands on.
