Seven Bridges Road


The 1969 album "Rock Salt And Nails" contains the first version of Steve Young's "Seven Bridges Road". The road also known as Woodley Road has existed for over one hundred years and is near Montgomery, Alabama. Guitarist James Burton played on the session with Steve Young and pushed for the song to be included on the album.

Based on an Ian Matthews arrangement, The Eagles (Don Henley, Glenn Frey, Don Felder, Timothy B. Schmit and Joe Walsh) had the hit cover of "Seven Bridges Road". Wikipedia: "Eagles recorded "Seven Bridges Road" for their Eagles Live concert album: according to band member Don Felder, when Eagles first began playing stadiums the group would warm up pre-concert by singing "Seven Bridges Road" in a locker room shower area: each concert would then open with the group's five members singing "Seven Bridges Road" a capella into a single microphone. Felder recalls that it "blew [the audience] away. It was always a vocally unifying moment, all five voices coming together in harmony." The single peaked at number twenty-one on Billboard's Top One Hundred and top twenty on the AC charts in 1981.
