5.0 out of 5 stars Eagles- Their Greatest Hits, December 3, 2007
This review is from: Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975 (Audio CD)
ESSENTIAL ALBUM!!! This album, along with Michael Jackson's Thriller, flip-flop as the number one selling album of all-time. There are ten timeless classics here from the pre-Joe Walsh era of the Eagles. All but one of these songs charted & the one that didn't should have. There are a few omissions but they're minor ones.

The album opens with "Take It Easy" which peaked at #12, Jackson Browne was a co-writer on this song. Next is "Witchy Woman" with it's American Indian sounding intro, it peaked at #9. "Lyin' Eyes" was one of the first songs from a pop artist that crossed over into the country charts. It went to #3 on Adult Contemporary, #8 Country & #2 Pop Singles. "Already Gone", one of their best rock songs went to #32. "Desperado" didn't chart but I consider it to be in my 50 greatest songs ever. "One of These Nights" was a #1 hit. "Tequila Sunrise" only made it to #64 but I consider it to be one of their best songs. "Take It to the Limit" was written & sung by bassist Randy Meisner, it went to #4 Adult Contemporary & #4 Pop Singles. "Peaceful Easy Feeling" went to #22. The final song on the album, "The Best of My Love" has a world-weary sounding vocal by Don Henley, another great song by the Eagles; it went to #1Pop singles & #1 Adult Contemporary.

This is an outstanding compilation, good reasons for it being one of the two best selling albums of all-time.
