The Eagles discography and album reviews

Eagles 

Welcome to our Eagles section. Below we have a discography and provide comments about some of the releases. The discography is comprised of the following sections: studio releases, compilations, live recordings. Their videos are within the live section.  

Released Oct. 10/30/2007 Long Road Out Of Eden

Compilation Summary
The Eagles compilations come in three basic shapes. The two-disc collection, two single disc recordings that cover different periods, and box-set that has three discs of studio material and a that features a live performance that is only available with the box. Editors choice, Eagles The Very Best Of.

Eagles Live
The Eagles have a few live releases as well as some videos. I generally enjoy these live recordings, but the Eagles are not a jamming band, and the live renditions are generally supplementary rather than essential.

Eagles The Very Best Of

Eagles:The Very Best Of  is a two-disc overview that spans their career. A limited edition included a third disc DVD of "Hole In The Wall," etc. The sound quality is excellent. A 48 page booklet is included with commentary of each song in the words of Don Henley and Glenn Frey. 

This covers most of the best material, but not all, tracks like "Hollywood Waltz," "Pretty Maids All In A Row," and "The Girl From Yesterday," which top my list.

Hell Freezes Over

The Eagles Hell Freezes Over come in both audio and DVD editions. The DVD has a different song sequence. The audio is marvelous in terms of sonics. The first four tracks are new studio songs. The first two are both recognizable hits, but the third track, "The Girl From Yesterday" is a solid track that takes them back to their roots, and should not be overlooked. The version of "Hotel California" is excellent, the ending solo takes a Latin approach; there is a single edition that is played on the radio which trims most of the instrumental out that, yuck.

The Eagles - Farewell 1 Tour - Live From Melbourne

Amazon.com
Thirty songs, spread out over two discs and well over two and a half hours, with fine performances, great sound, and good visual direction: it's all here on Farewell 1 Tour, a documentary of the Eagles' 2004 concert in Melbourne, Australia. At one point, the veteran band seemed unlikely to even make it to the new millennium, but here they are, mostly intact, with a string of hits dating back more than three decades. The majority of them are performed here, from the earliest ("Take It Easy," "Desperado," "Peaceful Easy Feeling") through "Hotel California" and "Life in the Fast Lane" and right up to "Love Will Keep Us Alive" (from Hell Freezes Over, their most recent recording with new material on it); there are also hits from Glenn Frey, Don Henley, and Joe Walsh's solo careers, and a few new songs as well, including Walsh's "One Day at a Time" (an earnest ode to his new-found sobriety) and "Hole in the World," Frey and Henley's moving, almost gospel-tinged reaction to the events of 9/11/01. 

Guitarist Don Felder, who split acrimoniously with the band in 2001, isn't much missed, as replacement Steuart Smith plays the parts just as Felder did--i.e., pretty much exactly as they were recorded (indeed, pristine recreations of the studio versions of their songs has always been a hallmark of the Eagles' live shows). 

As for the somewhat cheeky title, well, there's always been a certain smugness to the Eagles' sense of humor, and it's no different this time, as Frey doesn't even pretend that there won't be a Farewell 2 Tour in the future. And why not? These are good songs, played beautifully by the quartet (plus supplemental musicians) to audiences that love them. Bonus material is limited to perfunctory interviews with the band. --Sam Graham

Selected Works

Since The Eagles box-set, Selected Works: 1972-1999 includes a live concert so we've mentioned it in live section. More details of the box-set are within the compilation sections.

The concert was their millennium performance. It has its excellent moments, but the section from "Funky New Year" through "All She Wants To Do Is Dance" is not up our alley. The James Gang rendition of "Funk 49" is miles better. Perhaps the highlight is a scorching version of "Those Shoes," where Joe Walsh pulls out his bag of tricks from his solo days.

Common Thread: The Songs of the Eagles

On Common Thread: The Songs of the Eagles, the renditions are generally very close to the originals. This leads to an interesting listen, even very enjoyable. The Eagles are classified in the rock and country genres; their musical roots are firmly in country rock. The artists that pay tribute to them on this CD are in the country camp displaying how deep their influence is. Hopefully it will break down some stereotypes of country music as some great sounds are on this disc. 

Fans of country music will certainly treasure Common Thread: The Songs of the Eagles, while rock fans will be introduced to great rendition of classic songs and may find an artist or two that knocks their socks off.

Liner notes include track personnel and a brief essay.
