One of These Nights is the fourth studio album by the Eagles, released in 1975. The record’s title song became the group’s second No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100, in July of that year. The album yielded three Top 10 singles, “One of These Nights“, “Lyin’ Eyes“, and “Take It to the Limit“. Those singles reached No. 1, No. 2, and No. 4 respectively. The album became the band’s first to top the charts. It sold 4 million copies and was nominated for Album of the Year. A single from the album, “Lyin’ Eyes” was also nominated for Record of the Year, and won for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals.

One of These Nights is the last Eagles album to feature guitarist Bernie Leadon; who was later replaced by Joe Walsh. Leadon left the band after the One Of These Nights tour. The seventh track, “Visions”, is the only Eagles song on which lead guitarist Don Felder sang the lead vocals, despite a desire to write and sing more songs. The album was the band’s commercial breakthrough album, transforming them into international superstars and establishing them as America’s number one band. The band went on a worldwide tour to promote the album.

The cover for the album is an image of an artwork by Boyd Elder, also known as “El Chingadero”. Elder created artwork of painted skulls in the early 1970s, and pieces of his work, titled “American Fetish”, were exhibited in an art gallery in Venice, California in 1972
