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 A greatest hits that could have taken it to the limit January 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Having read David Fuller's review, I couldn't agree more...buy the gold disc! Worth every penny!
This album has, as of November 1999, become the biggest seller of all time: 26 million copies worth. Thriller is in second place at 25 million. And it's easy to see why. This perfectly captures the Eagles early years of country rock, before the Eagles turned all out rockers with Joe Walsh and Hotel California.
In fact, the ten selections are well sequenced flowing nicely together. Henley's vocals are judiciously split four per side. Each album is evenly represented on both sides of the LP.
The gold disc boasts superior sound, remastered directly from the two track stereo tapes. Curious is the fact that the track times are two seconds longer on each track. Compression on the orginal LP and CD perhaps? The jacket depicts the 3-D effect on the eagles skull, and features all the orginal graphics, including the LP labels.
One reviewer wished this CD could have been expanded. A couple of interesting facts: One, there were two singles from Desperado, Tequila Sunrise is on this, but Desperado was not a single. I'm glad it is on this. It is a track deserving of being on a greatest hits. However, the other single was Outlaw Man! Interesting!
Second, On The Border had three singles. Two of them are on this, but James Dean is not.
Lastly, we have a missing B-Side. The flip side to Take It Easy is a song penned by Henley-Frey called Get You In The Mood. To my knowledge, it is not on any Eagles album. I do not have much information on this 3:52 obscurity.
What we need is a comprehensive Eagles singles anthology. Let's hope we will get that, I mean the 30th anniversary is coming shortly. That's a hint!

5.0 out of 5 stars The greatest "Greatest Hits" album of them all April 23, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Having sold well over 14 million copies to date, this is now the biggest selling record of all time. Not bad for a band of talented but unknown musicians who were originally gathered together by a record producer to be Linda Ronstadt's back-up band.
Personally, I'm not a big fan of the "Greatest Hits" album concept, because they tend to be superficial selections of what got radio play, and often don't represent the artist's best work. Never has that been less true than it is here, though. This is a great greatest hits package because it also is representive of the best work the Eagles did between 1971 and 1975.
The Eagles recorded a total of only six studio albums before disbanding to pursue solo projects after the release of 1979's THE LONG RUN. This album draws from what is commonly noted as being the pre-Joe Walsh era--the first four albums, including THE EAGLES, DESPERADO, ON THE BORDER, and ONE OF THESE NIGHTS.
Originally, banjo/mandolin player and founding member Bernie Leadon was crucial to the band's sound. However, with the addition of Don Felder on guitar, the band moved toward a more mainstream California rock sound.
All of the songs on this collection are strong, particularly TAKE IT EASY, LYIN' EYES, DESPERADO, and the rare Eagles song from this period that doesn't feature lead vocals by either Don Henley or Glen Frey, the bassist Randy Meisner sung TAKE IT TO THE LIMIT.
I've had this album in one format or another since I was 12 years old, and I keep coming back to it for whatever you listen to music for.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Eagles Soar January 8, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The Eagles 1976's release Their Greatest Hits 1971-75 has recently become the biggest selling album of all-time topping Michael Jackson's Thriller. The album has moved a staggering 26 million copies and the fact that people are still consistently buying it 24 years after its release is a testament to the timeless nature of the songs. The songs are mostly in the country-rock vein from the wistful "Peaceful Easy Feeling" to the two-timing tale "Lyin' Eyes" to the supple number one hit "Best Of My Love". There are some harder number like the evil & dark sounding "One Of These Nights" and the smoldering "Witchy Woman". The band's success can be tied into the fact that Glenn Frey & Don Henley are extraordinary songwriters, the band are perfectionists in the studio, so their songs are painstakingly produced, Bernie Leadon, Randy Meisner and later Don Felder all are excellent musicians and they make picture perfect harmonies. An essential album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Early Country-Rock, mellow and easy on the ears December 31, 2002
Format:Audio CD
The Eagles have a reputation that would seem to put them into the same class as the greats of rock. This reputation comes in spite of the fact that The Eagles released but seven albums in their two incarnations, six of which were released between 1972 and 1979. The last album was "Hell Freezes Over", an orphan released in 1994.
The first four Eagles albums provided enough material for the first of six collections, titled "Their Greatest Hits". This album covers The Eagles from 1972 to 1975, the pre-Joe Walsh years. In general, their music during these years had a country flavor, but was well balanced with rock influences. I consider The Eagles of these first four albums to be one of the first true country-rock bands. I also think that Don Henley and Glen Frey brought to this genre a style and talent that reminds me of The Beatles in their middle years.
This album captures quite a range. "Desperado" is probably the most overtly country in styling. "Witchy Woman" has a rhythm that can only be described as based on Native American music, and thus is not true country, but has enough country elements to be considered either country or pop/rock. Other songs move further away from country, but still show their country influences, such as "Already Gone" and "Peaceful Easy Feeling".
While the country influence is there, you can also detect elements of The Eagles that would be more strongly manifested in "Hotel California" and "The Long Run". "Witchy Woman" has a strong electric guitar lead. "Already Gone" also has a dominant lead guitar, which at that time was more associated with rock. The latter song could have gone on "The Long Run", an album that moved The Eagles away from a country flavor.
