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' ...

It's tough to forecast which bands are built for the long run. The Eagles emerged as part of a genre (country rock) that proved to be a passing fancy. And with two talented frontmen sharing the spotlight, how could artistic differences be fended off for long? But, of course, Don Henley, Glenn Frey, and the boys had a juggernaut on their hands, generating a dozen top 10 hits in their initial eight-year spurt. Selected Works: 1972-1999 gathers all the highlights from the group in all of its '70s and early '80s glory on three discs, dubbed "The Early Years," "The Ballads," and "The Fast Lane." The handsome box is fleshed out with a live disc from New Year's Eve 1999. With striking packaging, extensive liner notes, and a surplus of vintage photos, Selected Works is a suitable retrospective on a band that defined the California sound and took it easy, and, in the process, took it to the limit. --Steven Stolder

Product Description

The Eagles finally receive their due with this 4-CD set, which includes 52 songs and an ENTIRE disc of unreleased live tracks featuring everything from hits like Hotel California and Peaceful Easy Feeling to surprises like Funk 49 and Please Come Home for Christmas !

Recommended!

3.0 out of 5 stars I really wanted to love this box set.... July 4, 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
but overall it is good rather than great.
First what is great is the sound quality of the digital remastering (far superior to originally released cds). Some reviewers complained about the non-chronological ordering of the songs but in my opinion this works really well, gives the set a sort of Eagles concert feel, and for long-time fans who are very familiar with the original albums, the sequencing is fresh and sheds new perspective on certain songs. The booklet of essays and photos are wonderful, as is the inclusion of previously unreleased live material on disc four (great versions of Peaceful Easy Feeling, Victim of Love and Best of My Love). And the set wisely ignores the relatively weak debut album, culling just the three "hits" plus Train Left Here This Morning.
However, what is bad about this set is that each disc runs 50-60 minutes (who's brilliant idea was that in an age of 80 minute capacity). This only serves to point out what is NOT included such as Seven Bridges Road, You Never Cry Like A Lover, I Wish You Peace, etc. The Millenium concert disc was particularly disappointing in this regard, since there was room for additional live versions of One of These Nights, Already Gone, Sad Cafe, Witchy Woman (none of which have ever been released whereas Hotel California is on every live release and could have been dropped) and at least one Frey solo song to help balance out the Henley material. Some reviewers complained about the inclusion of Dirty Laundry and other solo numbers, but I personally enjoyed hearing the Eagles play those tunes. Those fans are also forgetting that Walsh and Schmitt both orignally played on Don's first album (and maybe even on Dirty Laundry).
Casual fans should stick to the digitally remastered greatest hits volumes, hardcore fans should pick this up, and those in-between should find a used copy at a cheaper price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Glorified Greatest Hits November 21, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Owning The Eagles "Their Greatest Hits" is enough for all but serious fans. This boxed set really does just about everything wrong. It's way too shallow for hardcore fans. Nothing new here, just a compilation of readily available tracks. It's not even a particularly well-done compilation, as great, lesser-known tracks are skipped just to pad it out with more "hits". It would have been nice if it painted a more complete picture of the band, by say, including the amazing Bernie Leadon instrumental "Journey of The Sorcerer" or the breathtaking version of "7 Bridges Road" from "Eagles Live". The quality of the music, for the most part, is beyond reproach, but as far as the package itself goes, it's hard to recommend. For the hardcore fan, it's superflous- they'll own the vast majority of the material already. For the newcomer, it's either too much or not quite enough, depending on your point of view. There are ways to succesfully deal with commerical juggernaut-type bands in the box set format: take note of the amazing Tom Petty boxed set "Playback" which strikes a perfect balance: A great intro OR a great addition to a collection. Even the recent Queen and Led Zeppelin packages (just essentially repackagings of their complete studio recordings) make more sense than this weak collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything & Then Some December 8, 2000
By MPA
Format:Audio CD
It seems that everybody owns at least one copy of "Eagles: Their Greatest Hits, '71-'75", but the band itself was a lot more than that compilation. This set shows it all. Every song from their landmark album "Hotel Californai" (an album which, incidentally, did not come out until after the Greatest Hits album) are included in this set. Even if you own every Eagles Album, this set is important because it includes one disc of selected songs from the Eagles Millennium Concert, including the never before on CD tunes "Please Come Home for Christmas" and "Funky New Year." The concert also contains a wonderful re-worked rendition of "The Best of My Love" (don't worry, you also get the original version of that classic ballad in this set) as well as Joe Walsh's "Funk #49" and Don Henley's "Dirty Laundry" and "All She Wants to do is Dance." All of the music is separated per disc perfectly, with early works, the ballads and the fast lane for the edgier tracks. Only two glaring ommissions here: "The Greeks Don't Want No Freaks", which is the most dancable Eagles tune ever; and the live concert staple, "Seven Bridges Road". But there is an out-take from "The Long Run" sessions entitled "Born to Boogie" with an unrecognizable Glenn Frey on lead vocals. This set covers the entire musically history of the band from their country roots to the evolution of one of the best rock bands of the seventies. A must have for anyone with any interest in the Eagles. And as far as the price is concerned, take a look at other box sets--this one is one of the least expensive ones available.

2.0 out of 5 stars Form Over Substance November 17, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This boxed set is a monument to greed. The Eagles WERE a class act, until this travesty. The "selected" music, 53 tracks, is spread over 4 CDs, with many notable omissions. This would have very easily made an excellent 2 CD set. Apparently the Holiday "fast buck" mentality prevailed. The remastering is fine, but what you are really paying for is a fancy cardboard box. The CDs themselves aren't even in regular jewel boxes, but open cardboard sleeves that insure maximum exposure to dust. The enclosed booklet is dominated by pictures, with little meaningful information or insight. If you are looking at boxed sets for gifts, there are many others far more worthy of your consideration. If you need prime Eagles, wait for their remastered individual albums. All of them won't cost much more than this turkey. "Selected Works" is only for those with a lot more money than sense.

A milestone in the band's career. Put a marker in the ground to cover the 1970's Eagles pretty thoroughly, just as the date (1999) in the title indicates.
