"Deep Inside My Heart" by Randy Meisner

Song#:  0374
Date:  10/18/1980
Debut:  79
Peak:  22
Weeks:  16
Genre:  Rock

Pop Bits:  By 1977, Meisner was done with the band he co-founded, the Eagles. Tensions in the group and a desire to be with his family took a toll and he departed the group. A year later, he issued a self-titled debut solo album that barely scratched the album chart and produced no chart singles. But that changed in 1980 with his second album "One More Song." This single got Meisner his first chart entry and it almost broke into the Top 20.

ReduxReview:  The Eagles obviously had some good tunes, but they were never a favorite of mine. However, solo stuff from group members I almost prefer. Don Henley's solo stuff was great and I liked tunes from Glenn Frey as well. Meisner also had a few choice cuts too and I think this is one of them. Plus the addition of Kim Carnes is a nice touch. Their voices go well together.

ReduxRating:  6/10

Trivia:  Although not officially listed as a duet, the female vocal on the song was provided by Kim Carnes, who just had her first solo hit with "More Love" (#10). Meisner's album was produced by Val Garay who would soon produce Carnes' hit album "Mistaken Identity."
