June 10th, 1975 was the date when the Eagles released what would become their breakthrough album, One Of These Nights.
In terms of chart statistics it was the band’s first number one album on Billboard’s album chart and contained three Top 10 singles, One Of These Nights, Lyin’ Eyes and Take It To The Limit. The title track was also their second number one single on the Billboard Hot 100.
There were other significant achievements too. The album sold four million copies and won the band’s first Grammy for Best Pop Performance by a Group with Vocals. It was also nominated for Grammy Album of the Year and Lyin’ Eyes was nominated for Record of the Year.
Despite this success change was in the air. This was the last Eagles album to feature guitarist Bernie Leadon, who left after the One Of These Nights tour and was replaced by Joe Walsh. It contains a slight curio too, because track seven, Visions, is the only Eagles song on which lead guitarist Don Felder sang lead vocals.
