#2271 - The Eagles Signed Test Pressing Estimate: $3,000+

Fully signed test pressing of Hotel California
Rare vinyl test pressing of the classic 1976 Eagles album Hotel California, signed on the sleeve in felt tip by Randy Meisner, Joe Walsh, Don Henley, Don Felder, and Glenn Frey. The sleeve is also annotated "7E-1084 A/B," which signifies the Asylum Records US release of the LP; it also bears a "Charlie, Thanks" inscription in an unknown hand, and a pencil "Seal & Croft" sketch. The disc bears "Columbia Record Productions, Santa Maria, Test Pressing" labels on both sides. Etched into the 'dead wax' matrix areas are: "7E 1084 A-2RE CSM, 'Is It 6 O'Clock Yet?'" and "7E-1084 B-4RE CSM, 'V.O.L. Is Five Piece Live.'" In fine condition. From the collection of a former senior level executive in the music business. The 'secret messages' engraved in the run-out groove were included on the original release, with the latter referencing the album's sixth track, 'Victim of Love,' which was recorded in a live studio session with no overdubbing. The iconic album topped the charts for a total of eight weeks, and won Grammy Awards for the singles 'Hotel California' (Record of the Year) and 'New Kid in Town' (Best Arrangement for Voices). A fabulous group-signed test pressing of a true classic.
