Formerly the old back lot for Paramount Studios called Paramount Ranch which was the home of many, many westerns. The ranch served as the location for the cover of the Eagles’ second album, “Desperado“. The album was released on April 17, 1973 by Asylum.
The band members are shown on the album’s cover dressed like an outlaw gang. Desperado is the only Eagles album where the band members appear on the front cover!
