Top Customer Reviews
much early success in the U.S charts achieving five number one singles, six number one albums in the U.S along
with an amazing six grammy awards, selling over 150 million records world-wide.
The group were active between 1971 to 1980 reforming in 1994 to present day (with a couple of line-up changes
but still led by 'Glen Frey' and 'Don Henley'
Ironically the group though well known by music-fans and collectors never really got the recognition their music in
my view deserved here in the U.K.
This album has all the groups chart-entries (other than 'Please Come Home For Christmas) here in the U.K between
1975 and 1979 which include - 'One Of These Nights' (Chart '23' 1975) 'Lyin' Eyes' (Chart '23' also 1975) 'Take It
To The Limit' (Chart '12' 1976) 'New Kid In Town' (Chart '20' 1977) 'Hotel California' (Chart '8' 1977) 'Heartache
Tonight' (Chart '40' 1979) and 'The Long Run' (Chart '66' 1979) - these surprisingly the sum total of the groups U.K
Chart Success.........(they did achieve a couple of low-order entries when they reformed not included on-board)
....for me there are one or two all-time-favourites among their numbers, like - 'Lyin' Eyes' and 'Take it to The Limit'
though not massive hits this side of the Atlantic.
They were a quality group, though underwhelming the U.K chart scene, they did sell a lot of records....This release a
great example of the groups music.
However, as with most artists their greatest hits are not their very best records, and the Eagles are no exception. This collection probably just about manages to prevent the band being stereotyped as the epitome of every country rock cliché. Thus for every track that veers towards C&W (such as Tequila sunrise, Peaceful easy feeling, Take it easy or Lyin' eyes) there is another which is an orchestrated ballad or hints at R&B, soul, or even reggae (try Take it to the limit, One of these nights, I can't tell you why, or Hotel California). Overall, therefore, a reasonable balance is achieved and the result is very pleasant listening, although chronologically the tracks are all over the place and do not show the band's stylistic development over time. I'm also mystified as to how the rather jarring and forgettable James Dean made it into this collection.
For this to have truly been a Very Best compilation, however, a second CD would be needed, including more obscure but indispensable songs selected from all six original albums (Make your own list but don't hold your breath - such a compilation will never be issued). Instead, we committed fans will have to keep playing all the original albums to really hear the very best of the Eagles.
Okay these are still brilliant songs by a brilliant band but if you wanted to play The Eagles to your Granny I`d play this C.D. However, if like me you were brought up on heavy rock discos air guitaring to the solo of Hotel California then I`d stick to the original albums.
