Apart from two songs produced by Glyn Johns, it was produced by Bill Szymczyk because the group wanted a more rock‑oriented sound instead of the country-rock feel of the first two albums. It is the first Eagles album to feature guitarist Don Felder.

On the rollicking "Midnight Flyer", Bernie Leadon's banjo evokes the fingerpicking bluegrass of Earl Scruggs, while Don Felder channels Duane Allman for his slide solo on the soaring rocker "Already Gone". The only thing we love more than hearing each Eagle's taste shine through is how the group’s voices come together for those smooth, sweet harmonies. Few rock bands brought together members with influences as distinct as the Eagles’. On the rollicking "Midnight Flyer", Bernie Leadon's banjo evokes the fingerpicking bluegrass of Earl Scruggs, while Don Felder channels Duane Allman for his slide solo on the soaring rocker "Already Gone".

During the making of the album, the band experienced significant changes. After recording only two songs, the band let go of Johns and hired Bill Szymczyk. The band was so impressed that they invited Felder to become the fifth Eagle.

They wear their southern influences on their sleeves too often, and its clear that the band was still just a singles band at this point in their career. Too often do they find themselves rehashing the same old material, or they exhibit their obligation to a southern jam. Intended to be fun, they often drag and bore, losing at the song's most obvious purpose. The album is also often plagued with clichéd, unoriginal lyrics about love

if the boys in the band hadn’t grown weary of Johns’ efforts to play up the country in their rock. After spending six increasingly long weeks working with Johns in London, The Eagles flew the coop and returned to . where they joined forces with Szymczyk, and it was during those sessions that Felder was brought into the fold. Granted, he got there pretty late in the game, so he’s only on two tracks – Good Day in Hell and Already Gone – but it was enough for him to make his mark and earn formal membership in the band.
