The Eagles catalog became available for streaming at Rdio on Wednesday after being a longtime holdout from subscription services. No other subscription service in the U.S. had nabbed the Eagles catalog. A check at Deezer's U.K. site turned up no Eagles catalog.
But a few hours later, the group's catalog was no longer available for full-song streams at Rdio. A source indicated discussions with the band's management was behind the catalog's removal. An Rdio spokesperson had not responded to Billboard's request for comment at press time.
Ten Eagles albums -- seven studio albums and three compilations -- were available for streaming in their entirety at Rdio Wednesday evening -- with one exception. The live version of "Seven Bridges Road" on "Greatest Hits Volume 2" is only available as a 30-second preview. The 15 songs on "The Eagles Live" are also limited to 30-second clips.
