The non-hits are the best!,
This review is from: The Long Run (Audio CD)
This is a great Eagles album as it contains many great tracks that most people have never heard but are better than the hits in my opinion.
The Long Run, Heartache Tonight and In The City are good, and I Can't Tell You Why is ok, but...
King of Hollywood with it's great lengthy guitar solos has to rank as one of the Eagles' best, as does the minor hit, the Henley sung ballad, The Sad Cafe, with it's saxophone finale. There are other standouts such as the Disco Strangler and Those Shoes which showed the harder-edged playing of the Eagles and the terrific vocals of Henley. Then there is the short, but fun 50's sounding rock n roll number, The Greeks Don't Want No Freaks. Teenage Jail isn't quite up to standard, but it's still an ok song.
I think this album showed the type of hard-edged songs Don Henley would write for his later solo albums (can you tell I'm a fan?).
The Long Run is a MUST purchase for any Eagles fan who likes the rockier sounding songs. Make sure you get the remastered version for superior sound quality. Highly recommended.
