2019 reissue on 180g 2xLP- Eagles' 1994 Reunion Album Hell Freezes Over Remastered by Bob Ludwig Long out of print on vinyl and never before released in the US on standalone vinyl, the Eagles' momentous 1994 reunion album Hell Freezes Over sounds better than ever on this high-grade double 180-gram vinyl LP pressing remastered by Bob Ludwig.
The album features the band's line-up of the last studio album before their extended hiatus, 1979's The Long Run: drummer/vocalist Don Henley, guitarist/vocalist Glenn Frey, guitarist/vocalist Joe Walsh, guitarist/vocalist Don Felder and bassist/vocalist Timothy B. Schmit. Hell Freezes Over contains four new studio tracks and 11 live recordings from the Eagles' sessions at Warner Burbank Studios in Burbank, CA, recorded on April 25-26, 1994, and which became a top-rated MTV special.

Produced by the Eagles with Elliot Scheiner and Rob Jacobs, the album went on to spend two weeks at the top of the US charts and went nine-times platinum in America alone; it was also seven-times platinum in Japan and platinum in the UK and Norway. Hell Freezes Over inspired a massively successful two-year tour by the reunited quintet. It included the ballad and Adult Contemporary chart No. 1 "Love Will Keep Us Alive," written by British artists Paul Carrack and the late Jim Capaldi with countryman Peter Vale. The album also featured the Burbank versions of such band favorites as "Take It Easy," "Desperado," "Tequila Sunrise" and the acoustic reworking of "Hotel California." It is 25 years ago that the Eagles made their comeback with Hell Freezes Over. The jubilee, of course, cannot be passed unnoticed by the gentlemen, which is why a beautiful anniversary edition will appear on double-vinyl on March 8 - and that will be called for fans.
When Don Henley was asked in 1982 whether the legendary Eagles would ever come together again, his answer was short but powerful: "when hell freezes over". In other words: that will never happen. Yet it happened. In the spring of 1994, fourteen years after the band broke down, the men stood together again on stage for a special from music channel MTV. The recordings from then were - supplemented with four brand new studio tracks - collected on the album that the gentlemen jokingly baptized Hell Freezes Over. It was the start of a glorious comeback from the band from California: the album landed at the top of the charts worldwide and a successful tour followed, including a performance in the Rotterdamse Kuip.
This new vinyl edition of the album comes as said for the fans: vinyl had fallen out of favor in the mid-nineties and that is why only a handful of LPs from Hell Freezes Over were squeezed - and these are of course much sought-after today and have become extremely valuable collectibles. The album is now finally widely available on "the black gold" and this edition is also specially remastered for vinyl by renowned sound engineer Bob Ludwig, known for his work for artists such as Led Zeppelin, Queen and Bruce Springsteen.
