10 Songs, 43 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

One of the most perfectly compiled collections ever, Their Greatest Hits 1971-75 brings together 10 sublime country-rock tunes that helped make Southern California seem like the most mythical landscape of the '70s. Don Henley's vocals, most notably on the haunting piano ballad "Desperado" and the soft-rock charmer "The Best of My Love," were a major part of their success, but Randy Meisner's soulful "Take It to the Limit" and Glenn Frey's hitting-the-road rocker "Already Gone" showcased the band's impressive range.

One of the Greatest Bands Ever!

Seriously, the music is excellent. It’s no wonder this just overtook thriller as the best selling album of all time.

Classic Eagles

What a great album. To those complaining about Hotel California being missing: It ain't here because this album came out before Hotel California was released. I always laugh at a story my brother tells: At an Eagles concert in LA in late '75, the audience, expecting to hear all the awesome songs on THIS album, booed heavily when the Eagles started with "something new we've been working on". The new song was Hotel California. The audience was mystified and confused - it wasn't what they came to hear.
