The Eagles are cutting it really close with their upcoming 40th anniversary edition of the iconic Hotel California album. The set will actually be turning 41 on December 8.

Two weeks before that anniversary, on November 24, Rhino and the band will release a new 2-CD/1-Blu Ray edition of the album which Rolling Stone calls one of the forty greatest of the rock era.

Recorded between March and October of 2016, the album would be the first for Joe Walsh, who replaced Bernie Leadon, and the last for Randy Meisner.

It reached the top of the Billboard Albums chart a month later where it would end up spending eight weeks. To date, it has sold over 16 million copies, has been certified Diamond by the RIAA and produced three major hits, New Kid in Town (1976 / #1), Hotel California (1977 / #1) and Life in the Fast Lane (1977 / #11).

For the new release, disc 1 is a newly remastered edition of the album while disc 2 has ten live performances from an October 1976 show at the Los Angeles forum. The Blu-Ray includes a 5.1 surround mix, and advance rsolution multi-channel surround mix (96 KHz/24-bit) and a 192/24 stereo mix.

Also being released is a 2-CD Expanded Edition without the Blu-Ray and a single CD remaster along with associated digital versions.
