The group formed back in 1971 in L.A. 'Glenn Frey' 'Don Henley' 'Bernie Leadon' and 'Randy Meisner' they had
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.

This album has taken the best songs of a very good band, from albums like The Long Run, Border Line, One Of These Nights ,and my personal favorite, Hotel California. The individual songs on the album reflect the bands' progression through the 1970's, from their country rock debut single, Take it Easy, to their harder classic rock singles such as the legendary Hotel California, Life in the Fast Lane and In the Long Run. In between these tracks are hints of funk, glam and R&B. However The Eagles have also always stayed true to their American heartland roots and this is shown in the selection of songs on the album. On the whole the album is well rounded with popular tracks that were in the charts and others that should have been. Basically it is pure class.

In terms of coverage of the Eagles' principal hit singles and other best known songs, this compilation (actually only a slightly rehashed version of that issued some five years ago) can't be faulted. It epitomises the band's trademark country-rock sound of harmonious vocals and guitar backing, and will be ideal for the interested, although not dedicated fan. It's archetypal West Coast rock, with many memorable songs which have stood the test of time and become minor classics - and which even brightened up the west coast of Lancashire throughout the mid 70s, courtesy of the bands I and my friends played in!
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.

This album had been in the CD cabinet for quite a while! Then last Christmas when we had family around my mum brought it out. I lisened to and i thought it was bloody brilliant! There has been very few albums in which you could lisen to every song and it would be great. 'Hotel california' and 'taking it easy' are the most well known songs from the album but 'new kid in town' most of the other tunes are class! Why buy the latest bands album with a few good songs, when you can buy The Very Best of the Eagles and actully get an album in which every song is excellent!!

This is an album that as the advert goes "does exactly as it says on the tin" It is The Eagles and it is their greatest hits. The songs have been remastered however which means the rough edges have been smoothed off, the i`s have been dotted and the t`s have been crossed and the songs are made generally more easier to listen too. The only trouble is that it is like giving Macbeth a feather duster to kill the Scottish king with. The songs may have been brought into the twenty first century but they lack that raw gutsy emotionally charged feel that made the original songs such classics.
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.
