If you're looking at this Eagles box set, presumably you already know most of what you need to know about the band, and about their albums. They started as a country-influenced band, had a few hit singles and modestly successful albums. Over the course of their first four albums, they moved increasingly towards the pop/rock middle. With their fifth album, they took on rock guitarist Joe Walsh, lost the last vestiges of country (and some of their original members) and had their biggest, most shining, moment with Hotel California, which rightfully defined a musical time and place. Hubris, infighting, drugs, and many other withering influences wrecked havoc with the now huge band in the wake of Hotel California, and the long delayed swan-song studio album of their original run, The Long Run, was disappointingly inferior given expectations and the time it took to come to fruition.

Later came the Hell Freezes Over reunion, the endless tours, and one more (decent) studio album (so far). But that part of the story isn't covered by this box.

So what do you get here? You get all the original studio albums of their 1970s Asylum tenure. You don't get the live album from that era (rather dull anyway), and you don't get the one-off Christmas single (Please Come Home for Christmas), or a stray b-side. But other than that, this is their entire released studio output of that era. There are no bonus tracks on any of these albums. The albums also have not been remastered for this release, but instead are identical to the previous remasters from more than a decade ago. They sound fine, though...

The mini sleeves are adequate, as is the enclosing box. There are no liner notes.

Ultimately, this is a good deal for someone who wants all the music, with decent sound quality, for a low price.

To determine whether you are getting a good deal here or not largely depends on the current condition of your existing Eagles vinyl or CDs and whether they are in need of cheap replacement. In fulfilling such a purpose this new box set has significant merit, not least its price. Alternatively if your Eagles music collection is already in pristine condition then invest in a tax free ISA. This is another no frills Rhino "lob them altogether in a box collection". The details that go with it are the grouping of the six most popular Eagles studio albums from 1972-1979. This is not counting any non-LP tracks, either live album, Eagles Live (1980) or Hell Freezes Over (1994), or 2007s studio album "Long Road Out of Eden". As with previous and similar Rhino box sets there is no new mastering to speak of. Indeed they appear to be the same masterings by Ted Jensen at New York's Sterling Sound that were issued on CD in 1999 on the Eagles Selected works that always sounded great. These may also be the same remasters that formed part of the 2005's huge Eagles (Limited Edition Box) but frankly this reviewer is not prepared to mortgage the house to find out! The albums come packaged in generally ok vinyl-replica style wallets, held within a clamshell box and the titles included in this set are as follows:

THE EAGLES (1972) - The breezy Glyn Johns produced debut album starts off with the definitive cover of Jackson Browne's "Take it Easy" and also includes staples such as "Witchy Women" and the lovely laid back signature tune "Peaceful Easy Feeling". The Eagles are often rightly critiqued as popularisers of the cosmic Americana pioneered by Gram Parsons and Gene Clark.

The Eagles were always a smart band; they found a way of marrying Gram Parsons' 'Cosmic Country Music' with hard-rocking values, and cleaned up, commercially speaking. Apparently their original 'Greatest Hits' album is the best-selling album of all time (Citation Needed!). This far into the twenty-first century, music - at least in the shape of compact discs - doesn't have the value it once did. For less than the price of a double CD twenty years ago, you get all of the Eagles original recorded works (give or take the odd track), in miniature album sleeves (not reproducing the original gatefolds, sadly), in a funereal black clam shell box. Seems like good value to me; listening to the albums again after a long, long time, I was surprised to find how comparatively raw the first album was, how gutsy 'Out of Control' from 'Desperado' was, and how much of this music stands up. 'On The Border' has some little gems; for example, I wonder how much Tom Waits made from the royalties of their cover of 'Ol' 55'? 'My Man', their homage to Gram Parsons, is a really sincere tribute, and even when things got really slick on 'One Of These Nights', there's still music of great quality. 'Hotel California' is excellent, too - having heard 'New Kid In Town' on the radio so many times, I never thought I could really listen to it again, but it is such a polished gem that it sounds fresh to me. 'the Long Run' isn't so good, however, and I've docked this one star because I think the packaging could be a bit better, maybe with an annotated booklet. In the end, though, it's the music that counts, and this set is chock full of very good stuff.
