4.0 out of 5 stars A beautifully packaged collection., 18 Dec. 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Selected Works 1972-1999 (Audio CD)
I must confess that I've never been a big Eagles fan but was always aware of their greatest hits which were constantly played on the radio during the 70's and 80's. So I took a bit of a gamble with this lovely boxed set. It certainly looks the business, with a informative book along with the 4 CD's. But what counts is the music, and to my surprise - there are no critisisms. The sound is clean with all the hits, some album tracks and one or two unreleleased bits. Best CD of the bunch is CD3 - The Fast Lane. This contains more of the rockier side of the band and contains my favourite Eagles song "The Last Resort". But the other CD's are just as impressive. My only gripe with this set (which means only 4 stars!) is the fact that considering a CD can hold up to 80 minutes, the first CD is only 50mins, second CD - 1 Hour, and the third 68 mins. It seems a wasted oppertunity not to have filled up the space with even more tracks. That gripe aside, this is a beautifully packaged collection, which if like me, your keen to listen to the Eagles in more detail rather than buy individual albums, then you will not be disappointed

I was going to do a review of this set, so as to highlight the low running time. But you've said it already. That, for me, is the only real criticism of this very nice product.
