Photo Archive: Eagles by Ethan Russell, c.1972

Photographer: Ethan Russell
Location: Bernie Leadon’s home in Topanga Canyon.

These photos were probably taken in late 1971 or early 1972. Randy’s fringed jacket can be seen in photos and footage from his Rick Nelson & The Stone Canyon Band period.

“The Eagles before their first record and hence before they were famous. They were being scouted by Glyn Johns who was by then already my dear friend. They look young and happy and not road weary.” Ethan Russell.
