Product Description

33 career-spanning hits and album favorites on 2 CDs. Includes Take It Easy; Witchy Woman; Peaceful Easy Feeling; Desperado; Already Gone; James Dean; The Best of My Love; Lyin' Eyes; One of These Nights; Take It to the Limit; Hotel California; Life in the Fast Lane , and more. Unbeatable!

This packed double-disc is the slim option for fans who find the Eagles' vaunted greatest hits sets too little and the boxed set too hefty. Hit singles large and medium are here, often ("One of These Nights," "Hotel California") still sounding definitive and even tough. Large helpings of favorite album cuts are also included, along with a taster from a promised 2004 Eagles studio reunion. Unfortunately, "Hole in the World," Don Henley's response to September 11, feels just as empty and entitled as "Get Over It," the band's previous state-of-the-union message (from which the newer song represents a philosophical 180-degree turn). But for those seeking an overview of this Southern California juggernaut's successes, as well as telling comments from band members--mostly Henley and Frey--in a well-designed booklet, Very Best will more than do. --Rickey Wright

There have been Eagles compilations before but this by far the best. It contains all the songs that could be found on earlier British and American compilations, plus a few songs never before included on any of them. And everything has been digitally re-mastered, sounding better than ever.
All the famous songs are here including Desperado, Take it to the limit, Lying eyes, Hotel California, Tequila sunrise, New kid in town and Best of my love to name just a few.
Aside from the obvious songs, you also get Please come home for Christmas (a song that has since become a standard), two songs from their Hell freezes over album (Love will keep us alive and Get over it), their recently recorded Hole in the world and several great album tracks, of which I particularly like Midnight flyer and Victim of love. A nice booklet with extensive liner notes is also included.
If you only buy one Eagles collection, make it this one. It has everything that most people will ever need, although there are still plenty of interesting songs on the original albums that couldn't be included.

After years of putting out "Greatest Hits" and "Best of..." packages, the record companies are now having to resort to greater hyperbole to sell the collections. The current trend of "The Very Best of..." sets is, in most cases, just another issue of the same old stuff that has, at least usually, been remastered. That is not the case with this set.

The Eagles are as much of an emblem of the American '70's as the Beatles were of the '60's. Each album that was released showed a band that was changing and maturing, both as musicians and as songwriters. By the time they got to the end of their run with "The Long Run" (no pun intended), they moved as far from their roots as the Beatles had in 1969. And like the Beatles, it was all good.

This collection manages to showcase this transformation in elegant style, taking the best from every album. There are at least 3 songs from each of their studio albums with "On the Border", "Hotel California", and "The Long Run" each contributing 6. The lone selection from their 1980 live album is also the only reason to own it, "Seven Bridges Road". Also included are the two best new songs from "Hell Freezes Over" and their post 9-11 tune, "Hole In The World".

Greatest Hits collections are seldom satisfying to the more than casual fan, leaving those of us who delve deep into back catalogs the desire to go and get more. The remarkable thing about this set is that over the course of two discs, a great band's career is effectively and satisfyingly summarized, leaving very little for further investigation that is truly of note. Which is not to say that this is all that the Eagles were. It is to say, however, that for everyone from the curious to the hardcore fan, this is a collection worth having.

Format: Audio CD
It's been a long time coming, but we finally got an Eagles package that includes all the hits and the choice AOR songs from the seventies. The question would be "what took them so darn long?!?" Part was contract disputes (there was supposed to be a complete hits collection in the 90's, but squabbles derailed that) and the question of the original albums being poorly mastered to CD. So I figure that, once Bill Szymczyk did the massive overview of each Eagles album in 2001, the band was willing to get behind a well made hits collection that combined their first Hits Disc with the much lamer Vol. 2.
It was well worth the wait. The sound quality is uniformly excellent throughout. You get all the great songs and no trumped up "bonus material" (crappie demos, alternate versions, hip-hop mixes, etc.) to distract you as the hits keep piling on. It's hard to imagine that these sounds were revolutionary in the early seventies, but they darn near soundtracked the period. There's the biker band rock of "James Dean," the country bluegrass feel of "Midnight Flyer," the decade defining "Hotel California" and "Life In The Fast Lane," and one of the all time great romantic ballads in "Take It To The Limit." It also helps that Henley and Frey were such great, visual songwriters - how can you not hear "Desperado" without a widescreen image of the west as defined by Los Angeles 1974 unraveling in your mind?
Add the exemplary liner notes from Don Henely and Glenn Frey as they discuss the origins of each song, and you have a five star collection to reminisce over and enjoy. All meat, no filler, flawless.

Format: MP3 Music
This is the best and most comprehensive greatest hits album available for the Eagles. It includes all of their big hits like "Take It Easy", "Best of My Love", "Lyin' Eyes", "One of These Nights", "Hotel California", "Heartache Tonight", and the more recent "Love Will Keep Us Alive". It also includes several classic album cuts that received airplay including "Desperado", "On the Border", "Victim of Love", and "In the City". It covers everything from their 1970's heyday right on through their 1990's reunion. To get a more comprehensive collection, you would have to buy a box set.

The only complaint I have about this set is that they left off one of their minor hits, "Outlaw Man" from 1973's "Desperado" album. But that is a relatively minor omission. This is still a great set!
