Share Article

Randy Meisner, co-founder of The Eagles and writer of some of their classic tunes which helped to make them the best-selling group of all-time, has five never-before-released albums on Sonic Past Music.

The Best Selling U.S. Band of all-time

In 1972, Randy Meisner and three of his musician friends, signed with Asylum Records and called themselves, The Eagles. Ten albums later, and with the accolade of being part of "The Best Selling U.S. Band of all-time," Meisner decamped, and Sonic Past Music is privileged to have five of his CDs distributed on their label. Randy Meisner was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with The Eagles in 1999. Go to http://randymeisner.sonicpastmusic.com for more information on the following releases.

Live In Dallas was recorded in 1978 and features Meisner at the peak of his performing career. The CD includes his solo version of many of the Eagles favorites that he wrote as well as newer Meisner solos.

Love Me Or Leave Me Alone is a compendium of Randy's unreleased favorites…some having been recorded by The Eagles and others that have never been heard before.

Meisner, Swan And Rich has Randy hooking up with Memphis songwriting legend Billy Swan and Alan Rich in the late '90s. The album features many of Rich, Sr.'s classic hits and recent Jerry Lee Lewis' (Rich's godfather) material. The album is Randy's first collaboration, post-Eagles.

The Drivin' Dynamics showcases Meisner's first group and proves why they were one of the top touring attractions in the Midwest. In 2001, The Dynamics celebrated their 40th anniversary and performed for thousands at a celebration in Oregon with all previous members on hand.

Help The Poor is the group Randy joined after leaving The Drivin' Dynamics. The band left Colorado and headed to Hollywood in the mid-'60s. This album draws from never released material recorded by the band. Decca, Loma and York Records released several singles by Help The Poor, but did not release an album by the group.

Sonic Past Music was formed as an outlet for Meisner and other popular and recognizable artists to commercially release albums that have been previously unavailable or were not released on any label. Sonic Past founder, Joey Stec explains, "In today's fractured music industry we don't have to be 19 and mainstream to put out our albums, it's okay to cater to a niche market. These titles are by artists that made their mark primarily on the West Coast in the '70s and '80s. They are my friends, colleagues and family. Collectively we've spent decades together in the studio amassing hundreds of albums-worth of masters."

All Sonic Past releases for the U.S. have been digitally re-mastered and include music and art not found elsewhere. Prior Japanese and European Sonic Past releases of some of these albums are available. Further information is available at http://www.sonicpastmusic.com.
