Editorial Reviews

Import-only anthology of solo recordings from the Eagles' founding member, guitarist and vocalist. When the Eagles split in the early '80s after their album the Long Run, Frey emerged as a successful solo artists and popular chart mainstay in the latter part of the decade. Apart from the solo hits, he even found time to act in the occasional TV series and promote fitness centers! Features 16 tracks including 'The One You Love', 'The Heat Is On', 'You Belong to the City', 'Soul Searching' and many more. Universal.

I probably am in the minority, but when I look at the legendary Rock band The Eagles, I look at the sum of the parts as exceeding the whole. This is not a negative factor on the Eagles - I do think they are an all-time great band. When I look at the individual solo work, I see some very high quality work that often gets overlooked because The Eagles had achieved such great success. Two of the main components of The Eagles are Don Henley and Glenn Frey. This duo basically made up the nucleus for the band. Following the split of band in the early 1980s, Henley and Frey would embark on solo careers. For the most part, it's Henley's solo career that is in the spotlight. Henley's efforts would be more of an 80s Rock sound - and would often be interspersed with some social commentary (i.e. his song "Dirty Laundry"). In addition, Henley would often bring in many top notch studio musicians to collaborate with him - helping to enhance a powerful nucleus of music that had already written. Frey would take a very different approach - he would bring more of a combination of R&B, Soul, Blues, and even some Folk to his music. Frey didn't bring the big name studio musicians like Henley - but there was no loss of quality. Frey brings an equally impressive portfolio of solo work and this is highlighted on the greatest hits compilation entitled "Glenn Frey - Solo Collection". Perhaps the different approaches to music were why the nucleus of Henley and Frey worked so well with The Eagles.

Glenn Frey has released four main solo albums in his career. These albums are all represented.

...you won't find all of it here. But Frey's "Solo Collection" is a great place for casual fans to get "Smuggler's Blues", "The Heat Is On" and "Part Of Me, Part Of You" (from the 'Thelma & Louise' soundtrack).

Almost all of Frey's top 20 hits are here, alongside three previously unreleased songs, and while "Sexy Girl" has dated pretty badly, most of these numbers hold up very well. And the new songs are actually among the best of the lot.
Don't expect this to be "The Heat Is On" times 16, though; that one was far from Frey's usual style. After the breakup of the Eagles, Glenn Frey turned himself into a smooth AOR singer with a pinch of R&B and quite a lot of soul in his music, writing most of his songs with fellow musician Jack Tempchin.
That partnership resulted in hit singles like "You Belong To The City", the blue-eyed soul of "The One You Love" and the hard-rocking "Smuggler's Blues", as well as numerous other great songs which would have been nice to have on this album.

The Eagles occationally play some of Frey's songs in concert, stuff like the ballads "Lovers' Moon" and "Let's Go Home", and that low-key side of Glenn Frey is not really represented here...but check out his live album, which is simply called "Live", and then, if you're hooked, his four studio albums "No Fun Aloud", "The Allnighter", "Soul Searchin'" and "Strange Weather".
Besides - a CD can only hold so much, and the "Solo Collection" is a very consistent album and a fine introduction to founding Eagle Frey's years out on his own.

This is a decent collection for fans looking to acquire Glenn's biggest hits. Songs like "The Heat Is On," "You Belong to the City," "Smuggler's Blues," "The One You Love" and "True Love" - all classic '80s tunes that you've probably heard countless times before - are all present and accounted for. The Top 20 hit "Sexy Girl" is also here. Plus "Solo Collection" has the fantastic album track "I've Got Mine," a moody, synth-laden gem which as another reviewer noted, sounds like it could have been Part 2 of "You Belong to the City." Unfortunately, the good news ends there. Amongst the glaring omissions are the Top 40 hits "I Found Somebody" and "All Those Lies" from the "No Fun Aloud" album, AOR staples from back in the day "Partytown," "Don't Give Up," and "The Allnighter," and fan-favorites "Somebody Else," "Lovers Moon," "Some Kind of Blue" and "Love in the 21st Century." All of those should rightfully be here. Add to that that the collection is not sequenced in chronological order and falls well shy of the 80 min. mark and you can imagine what could have been had the compilers put a little more effort into this project. As for the 4 previously unreleased tracks...while it's certainly nice to have those available on CD someplace, they're mediocre at best and have no business taking the place of any of the aforementioned missing tracks. The best bet if you really want a truly definitive collection of Glenn's music is to buy all the original albums or burn your own Greatest Hits.Read more ›
