Photo Archive: Eagles, early 1974

Photographer: Henry Diltz

First band photos with new member, Don Felder. These were possibly taken during the recording of On The Border since producer Bill Sczymcyk appears in one of the photos. Randy is wearing a t-shirt for the Joe Walsh & Barnstorm album, The Smoker You Drink, The Player You Get (also produced by Sczymcyk.) He is also wearing the same yellow chamois shirt worn in the photos from London in March 1973 & the Topanga Canyon session in September 1973.

One photo from this set was used for ads and publicity for the Eagles’ upcoming 1974 tour in support of their album On The Border. The purpose of this session was probably to get a band photo with Felder since he was not included in the photos that were initially taken for the album.
