This review is from: Desperado (Audio CD)
This is an interesting record because it gets away from the usual 'Greatest Hits' presentation. It features some of the Eagles' lesser known tracks, such as 'Outlaw Man', which are however of variable quality. In some ways, the Eagles' music is now very dated and perhaps it would be better to update the performance rather than re-issue old material, remastered or not. The composition of the album is also lacking in variety: there are 3 versions of 'Doolin' Dalton' on it and 2 versions of 'Desperado. The basis of the album is supposed to depict the Eagles as outlaws, which was a common feature of country music at the time. This does not give them the excuse of short-changing their fans and I feel that some of them might have felt ripped off at the time. Perhaps this is why this album did not do as well as their initial self-titled album. They did not become world beaters until a couple of years later when they became more mainstream.

Are you under the impression that this is a Greatest Hits package, because it isn't, it was their second studio album recorded in London with engineer Glyn Johns.
