They stab it with their steely knives, but they just can’t kill the beast.
In this case, the beast is the Eagles’ monster hit 1976 album, Hotel California, which is set for a 40th-anniversary deluxe edition reissue set for release on Nov. 24 (just in time for Black Friday).
Originally released in December 1976, the multiple-GRAMMY winning full-length is one of the best-selling albums of all-time, moving in excess of 32 million copies over the years.
The new deluxe edition will arrive as a 2-CD/1-Blu-ray Audio set that includes remastered sound, ten previously unreleased live recordings, as well as hi-res stereo and 5.1 mixes. Presented in an 11 x 11 hardbound book, the set also features rare and unseen photos from the era, a replica tour book, and an 11 x 22 poster.
The collection will be available for a list price of $99.98. Both a 2-CD Expanded Edition ($19.98) and 1-CD ($9.98) will also be available, along with digital download and streaming versions.
