1ST TIME ON CD*

Amazon.co.uk

It's tough to forecast which bands are built for the long run. The Eagles emerged as part of a genre (country rock) that proved to be a passing fancy. And with two talented frontmen sharing the spotlight, how could artistic differences be fended off for long? But, of course, Don Henley, Glenn Fry and the boys had a juggernaut on their hands, generating a dozen top-10 hits in their initial eight-year spurt. Selected Works 1972-1999 gathers all the highlights from the group in all of its 1970s/early 1980s glory on four discs, dubbed "The Early Years", "The Ballads" and "The Fast Lane". The handsome box is fleshed out with a live disc from New Year's Eve 1999 ("A Night To Remember"). With striking packaging, extensive liner notes and a surplus of vintage photos, Selected Works is a suitable retrospective on a band that defined the California sound and took it easy, and, in the process, took it to the limit. --Steven Stolder

Even before they published their first album, the Eagles declared that they wanted to be more than a one-hit wonder; they wanted to create something lasting. They certainly have - although you don't even need this particular compilation as evidence of that fact. Maybe even more probative in that respect is their surprise reunion after their bitter 1980 break up and subsequent "14-year vacation," fittingly entitled "Hell Freezes Over." So why bother with this one?
First, because of the Millennium Concert CD; not only because you don't get that particular CD without the boxed set anyway. (OK, I admit I went to the show, loved it, and would have bought the boxed set for that reason alone. But even if you didn't see the show, it's still worth the expense.) The disc opens, as the Eagles' shows have for years, with "Hotel California" - their signature song which personally, I can't get enough variations of; so I am very happy with yet another live version, particularly as (in hindsight) this is probably the last recording with the participation of Don Felder. In addition, this CD contains the first live version of "Take It to the Limit" since the departure of Randy Meisner (with Frey, who declared during the show that the song "is now in G," taking over lead vocals), and several tracks the Eagles have never officially recorded live; although Glenn Frey may have been a bit tongue-in-cheek when he said during the concert that they didn't even remember ever *performing* those songs live before: "Victim of Love," "Please Come Home For Christmas," "Funky New Year," "Those Shoes" (one of my all-time favorites) and Tom Waits' "Ol' 55." (According to Frey, Tom Waits wasn't very happy with their cover at first "... but then he got the check. And since then, Tom and I, we're really close.

OK, just to make it clear, I am a MASSIVE Eagles fan and this review is in no way a negative reflection on the music. The set is undoubtedly a good, retrospective collection for most fans, either those who are complete novices to the music, those who have never delved deeper than Hotel California or Greatest Hits, or for people like myself who had old, worn out tapes of all of their albums and were tempted by the remastered sound, the new live CD and the book. And what there is cannot really be faulted. However, I would agree with a previous reviewer that this is not a particularly good value buy. The book is well-produced and informative (nothing I didn't already know but nevertheless), and the box set is fitting. But I still feel that there are a few notable omissions, in particular from the earlier period: "Most of us are sad" and "Tryin'" from their debut album, "Certain kind of fool" from Desperado and "Is it true" from On The Border. OK, critics will always have their favourites. The live CD is not bad but far from worth purchasing if you have most of the other songs - a decent version of Hotel California and Ol' 55, "Please Come Home For Christmas" (probably not in most fans' collections unless they bought the superfluous Greatest Hits Volume 2 in the early 80s), a couple of familiar favourites performed in an unfamiliar way and a couple of Don Henley solo tracks to pad it out. The collection does contain a limited amount of previously unreleased material but most of this consists of studio outtakes or joke songs which, believe me, are not worth their space. So in conclusion, it IS a good collection but if you have most of the stuff already don't bother - better off to go out and buy the 6 original albums separately (all now remastered) at a snip over the box set price. A far more comprehensive and representative reflection of their work.

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

*** THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE 2013 REISSUE ***
