“Desperado:” The Eagles’ Old West Themed Song
Never issued as a single, Desperado appeared on Eagles second album of the same name in 1973, and numerous compilation albums since then. Although the song conjures images of the old west, it was recorded in London. Its debut was on a concert tour of the American West.
Written by first Don Henley, it was later brought to Laurel Canyon where Glenn Frey contributed to it. As such, it was one of the first Henley-Frey songs, and also the impetus for the band’s album of the same title.
