The Eagles’ “Hotel California” will be reissued in a deluxe 40th anniversary edition on Nov. 24, pairing the remastered original studio album with 10 live tracks recorded at the Forum in Inglewood around the time the work was released.

The 40th anniversary designation is being applied somewhat loosely. “Actually, it came out in December of 1976, but nothing really hit the charts until ’77, so we’re not really that late,” Eagles founding member and songwriter Don Henley told The Times recently. “We’re fudging it a little bit.”

In fact, the first single from the album, “New Kid in Town,” sneaked in just before year’s end, premiering on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart on Dec. 18, 1976, on its way to a peak at No. 1 during its 15-week chart run.
