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' ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Stuff - But the original albums are better December 31, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Here is an interesting situation. The Eagles released their first greatest hits album after releasing four albums. They then release two more albums and then release a second greatest hits collection. Let me give you the end of this review. I like this collection. However, the two albums from which eight of the songs derive, "Hotel California" and "The Long Run", are better. Of the other two songs, "After the Thrill Is Gone" is from the 1975 release "One of These Nights". The other song is the wonderful "Seven Bridges Road", which only appears on 1980's "Eagles Live". I think the only reason I bought this CD was because of "Seven Bridges Road", otherwise owning the aforementioned albums covers the rest.
These songs show a change in musical styles, from the country rock of the first four albums to rock and pop/rock, likely a result of Joe Walsh' influence on Don Henley and Glen Frey. In the process The Eagles created one of the best story songs ever, "Hotel California", a surreal vision combining elements of the desert, the loss of innocence of all of us in the transition from the 60s to the 70s, and a longing for those things that never seem quite achievable.
The other songs on this collection range from very good to great. The Eagles hit a peak on "The Long Run" and "Hotel California" that was reflected in the sales of both albums, and the extensive list of singles released from both. While the early Eagles albums were influential in country-rock, the last two albums are what cemented their place in rock music.
As great as the music is, as I stated at the beginning, I find it difficult to recommend this CD as a must have. "The Long Run" and "Hotel California" albums are worth buying. Once you have those, there are only two songs you are missing from this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended for beginners December 23, 1999
Format:Audio CD
This album contains all the radio-friendly hits from the Eagles' last two studio albums of the 1970s. If you do not own "Hotel California" and "The Long Run," get this cd. I would recommend "The Long Run" only to die hard fans because the second half of the album sounds like a half-hearted effort of the boys to be creative. "After the Thrill is Gone" is included on this album even though it was a 1974 hit. The album closes out with an unexplained bizarre, dissonant honkytonk piano track. "Seven Bridges Road" is a great live tune the Eagles often performed during their last few years of performing. As for "Heartache Tonight, " I think the live version would have been stronger for this compilation. All in all a very decent collection with all the familiar songs of their harder rock phase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! But... February 17, 2001
Format:Audio CD
If you are a casual Eagles fan then you would do well by purchasing this album and the Eagles first Greatest Hits album. The differences between the two are interesting. As everyone knows, the Eagles were more or less a country rock band on their early albums (up to One of These Nights) and their first Greatest Hits album reflects that. This album, however, is different. With the addition of Joe Walsh to the band and the switch away from a country-rock sound (for the most part, anyway) what we get here are equally good (arguably better) songs in a different vein. The songs for the most part are more "rock 'n' roll-esque" than were the songs on the first set. Absolute classics like Life In The Fast Lane, The Long Run, and Victim of Love are excellent examples of the Eagles harsher sound towards the latter part of their career. And of course, you get Hotel California, which is unarguably one of the greatest songs of all-time in anybody's book. However, there are also songs that are more of a throwback to their earlier albums. New Kid In Town, Heartache Tonight, I Can't Tell You Why, etc. After The Thrill Is Gone from One of These Nights is also included. So is the live cover of Steve Young's Seven Bridges Road and the closing album track from The Long Run, The Sad Cafe. All are good songs. This is a worthy purchase for the new Eagles fan, along with the first volume, and perhaps Hotel California.
However, all of that said, there are some negative things that need to be pointed out about this collection. First off, there are some great songs missing. Notably, Wasted Time (one of my favorite Eagles songs) and The Last Resort from Hotel California, and Those Shoes (a very underrated song) from The Long Run. Granted, these songs were not necessarily "hits", but they are missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Thrill Is Not Gone January 26, 2000
Format:Audio CD
A great second edition to their greatest hits 1971-1975, both should be in your collection if you are an Eagles fan. A nice bonus to this disc is a live version of "Seven Bridges Road", what harmony. My favorite Eagles song is on this disc, "I Can't Tell You Why", this song is so soulful it probably could've been a hit by the Stylistics as well as the Eagles. If you're an Eagles fan you probably have this disc in your collection, if you're new to the Eagles pick up their hits 1971-1975 along with this disc and you'll see what the Eagles are all about.

3.0 out of 5 stars Skip it and get "Hotel California" and "Long Run" instead September 30, 2002
Format:Audio CD
An admirable companion piece to "Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975", but like that one, it misses a few good tunes. "Wasted Time" and "The Last Resort" are both great songs from "Hotel California" (which is essentially a greatest hits album in itself), and "Those Shoes" and "In The City" (from "The Long Run") would've been better choices than the ho-hum "The Sad Café". In particular, "In The City" should be here if only to showcase Joe Walsh's contribution to the band on vocals. "Seven Bridges Road" is a welcome addition, but "After The Thrill is Gone" predates the era from which the other nine songs are drawn, and seems only to be included since lyrically it's an appropriate coda to the Eagles' career (until 1994 anyway). Fair enough, but if they wanted to dip back into the pre-'76 days, they should've gone with "James Dean" or "Ol' 55" instead.
Like I said, this collection is okay, but really, I'd skip this and just get "Hotel California" and "The Long Run" instead. There's enough good songs there to merit owning both (I don't know why "The Long Run" gets slagged so much, I think it's a great album). Add those to "Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975" and possibly "On The Border" (to get the other two tracks I mentioned), and you've got as complete a collection of Eagles tracks as you'd ever need.
