History Of The Eagles Trailer

Biography

With five number one singles, fourteen Top 40 hits, and four number one albums, the Eagles were among the most successful recording artists of the 1970s. At the end of the 20th century, two of those albums -- Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975) and Hotel California -- ranked among the ten best-selling albums ever, and the popularity of 2007's Long Road Out of Eden proved the Eagles' ...

Greater than a hand-plucked menagerie of hits and outtakes, this box set is just that—a complete set of the six studio (and one live) albums, in their originally sequenced entirety, recorded during the 1970s decade in which the Eagles helped define. The nine-CD collection plays chronologically, beginning with the folk-rock pace and Everly Brothers harmonies of the 1972 self-titled debut ("Take It Easy," "Witchy Woman," "Peaceful Easy Feeling") and the 1973 Western concept album, Desperado ("Tequila Sunrise," "Desperado"). Don Henley and Glenn Frey added guitarist Don Felder as the band steered in a rock direction for 1974’s On the Border ("Already Gone," "James Dean") and toward a polished, FM-ready sound for 1975’s One Of These Nights ("Take it to the Limit," "Lyin’ Eyes") before guitarist Joe Walsh joined as the Eagles reached their mainstream apex in 1976 with Hotel California ("New Kid In Town," "Life in the Fast Lane," "Hotel California"). While The Long Run in 1979 didn’t measure up to its predecessor, it did fire off three successful singles--"Heartache Tonight," "The Long Run" and "I Can’t Tell You Why"--and led to the farewell tour that resulted in 1980’s Eagles Live, 15 concert cuts (followed by a pair of holiday recordings) that close out the box set and the pre-reunion career of one of America’s most revered bands. --Scott Holter

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a 9-CD limited edition (only 20,000 copies) of The Eagles' entire Asylum recordings from 1972's self-titled debut through 1980's EAGLES LIVE (on 2CDs) plus a bonus CD containing their 1978 holiday single "Please Come Home for Christmas" and "Funky New Year." [Because this box set only covers the Asylum years, it does not include the 1994 Geffen album HELL FREEZES OVER or their 2003 single "Hole in the World."]

The CDs are housed in replicas of the original vinyl albums and include the original artwork. Serious Eagles fans will eagerly make the purchase, but casual fans will be content with 2003's 2-disc THE VERY BEST OF. After all, there is no bonus material here--even though none of these CDs are longer than 45 minutes (and the CD single is barely 7 minutes!).

There's no denying, however, the group's popularity. They have sold more than 83 million albums. [GREATEST HITS alone has sold more than 27 million!] Only the Beatles and Led Zeppelin have sold more records. Throughout the seventies, Don Henley and Glenn Frey were the Lennon and McCartney of the era, penning virtually all of their hits, including classics like "Best of My Love," "One of These Nights," "Lyin' Eyes," "Take It to the Limit" (with Randy Meisner) and "Hotel California" (with Don Felder).

This box set is a little pricey, but the music it contains is priceless. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

So many acts have come and gone in the 70's. While most of those performers have tried to withstand that test of time, it hasn't really worked out all the way for them. Nevertheless, there was just so music acts that so many people don't get tired of. Out of all of them from the U.S., The Eagles have really been one of those groups that keeps coming back again, and again. The songs they've made since the 70's have made them one of the greatest acts of all time, and scored them the biggest-selling album of all time with Greatest Hits 1971-1975. They have came back in the 90's and proved so many that theiir love has kept them alive, and so does the music.

The 2005 Eagles: Limited edition box set is a real wonder, as all of their Elektra records have fully been restored to the best quality possible. It is just the second box set the group has conjured that reflects this legendary group. The music keeps shining better than ever with great classics like Hotel California, The Long Run, Take It To The Limit, one of their first classics Desperado, and the deep Witchy Woman. It really is a deep feel for anybody who wants to have the full Eagles experience.

Yet, where there is so much great music, there happens to be a few disadvantages that are highlighted here. One of them is that box set overlooks the 1994 live reunion record Hell Freezes Over, where so many people got to relook at the magic Don Henley, Glenn Frey & company made. It also overlooks their recent comeback single, Hole In The World, which is just a great track. Another disadvantage is that others might want to consider another hits package because of the price, like their other box set Selected Works, or the 2003 well-showcased Very Best Of The Eagles compilation instead.

This limited edition box set is a must have for any Eagles fanatic. There's nothing new here musically in the way of outtakes or remastering, but the presentation is amazing. Rhino has recreated the artwork for all the band's original 70's albums (and 1980's Live release) down to the smallest detail. From poster inserts to dust sleeves, each cd is meticulously crafted to mirror its record counterpart. Even the feel of the cd case are authentic from the unusual texture of On The Border to the raised artwork or One Of These Nights. This set is pricey, so casual fans will not be interested. As is the norm, Rhino Records has risen to the occasion with another superb reissue that is well worth the price tag.

I've been an Eagles Fan since I plunked down the five bucks it cost me to purchase their debut album, back in the early '70's. In my opinion, there was never a "bad" Eagles album. Although I now own all the Eagles releases on individual CD's, I purchased this box set for a friend. The packaging is excellent, and the collection includes every album the Eagles have released, except "Hell Freezes Over", which is mysteriously absent from this collection. The sound quality is excellent.

If you don't own any Eagles CD's, and you want the works, purchase this collection, plus the addition of "Hell Freezes Over". That'll give you every Eagle's album released, plus a couple of holiday tunes, and you'll be about thirty bucks ahead of the game, in comparison to purchasing them seperately.

If you already own all the Eagles CD's, there's little here that's worth $103.00.

And here's an observation, for what it's worth: The Eagles have done a remarkable job of keeping the prices of their CD's elevated, even though their debut album CD, which now costs $18.99 new, was released in 1972. It is a bit annoying when I go through Amazons' Eagle's catalog, and I find that the Eagles have no less than EIGHT Greatest Hits collections. This is a band that only released EIGHT albums TOTAL, and that's counting their double live set!

Regardless, this is a great set, and for anyone who wants to obtain the Eagles stuff quickly, this is the way to do it. And it does make a great gift.

Why isn't "Get You in the Mood" on this set?
Because it's a really lousy song that I'm sure they are trying to forget.
