Glenn Frey was well-known for his laid-back vocals and breezy acoustic guitar playing on Eagles favorites like “Take It Easy” and “Peaceful Easy Feeling,” but the singer, who died January 18, was writing and playing great music long before he took flight.


Before he was an Eagle, Frey was part of the acoustic-based duo Longbranch Pennywhistle with fellow Detroit native and singer-songwriter JD Souther. Check out this gorgeous, little-known, early country-rock classic by Frey on this ‪#‎ThrowbackThursday‬.
