Eagles' New Album Exclusive to Wal-Mart

       Long Road Out of Eden specially-priced, double-album available
                  October 30 in Wal-Mart stores Canada-wide

    MISSISSAUGA, ON, Sept. 6 /CNW/ - Building upon one of the broadest
selections of music for Canadians coast-to-coast, Wal-Mart has joined with the
Eagles on their upcoming new album release, Long Road Out of Eden. Featuring
20 brand new studio recordings, the album is scheduled for an October 30
release and will be specially-priced at $14.88.
    The Eagles joined with Wal-Mart due to the retailer's effort to be a
leader in environmental sustainability, making a difference for future
generations. Long term, Wal-Mart Canada has committed to three ambitious
environmental goals: to be supplied 100 per cent by renewable energy; to
create zero waste; and to sell products that sustain the earth's resources and
environment. The CD case for Long Road Out of Eden is FSC Certified.
    "We're committed to providing more selection, value, and unique offerings
to our Canadian customers in our continuously evolving entertainment area,"
said Dan Belec, Wal-Mart's divisional merchandise manager of home
entertainment. "Partnering with world-class performers like the Eagles allows
us to offer our customers exclusive music and exclusive access to one of the
greatest rock bands of all time."
    The Eagles have sold more than 120 million albums worldwide, earning five
No. 1 U.S. singles and four Grammy Awards. Eagles: Their Greatest Hits
1971-1975 is the best-selling album of all time, exceeding sales of 29 million
units. The band's Hotel California and Their Greatest Hits Volume 2 have sold
more than 16 and 11 million albums respectively. Eagles were inducted into the
Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.
