Tribute to Glenn Frey: "Seven Bridges Road"

Although radio stations substantially undervalued the appeal of this song, Eagles fans know it well.  It is pure magic--five voices that blended together so perfectly, and the group performed it many times in concert--perfectly.

It was recorded for the Eagles Live concert album, replicating the arrangement of the song by Iain Matthews.  The group warmed up for every concert by singing "Seven Bridges Road" backstage.  The group's five members sang the song a cappella into a single microphone.  Guitarist Don Felder recalls that it "blew [the audience] away.  It was always a vocally unifying moment, all five voices coming together in harmony."
