Yes - I would buy a 2-disc comp that included selected Henley/Frey/Walsh solo songs mixed in.......
maybe if you throw in the schmit, meisner, leadon and felder solo stuff too.
Maybe with some Henley tracks, perhaps one from Joe, but solo Frey would be a deal-breaker
No 'Heavy Metal', no sale.
On a side note, is there any thread that takes the 'final Beatles album' game and works it with The Eagles?
hmmm I did like Randy Meisners first solo album. this is a good idea but the problem is joe walsh. too much stuff to choose from
No, as I already have compilations for the separate members.
I'd rather have some archival live material from The Eagles 72-80
I have one already. I put this together a couple of weeks ago, and have it out in my car. Still not tired of it.
I left off what I considered to be Slow and Easy songs. Pretty much fills up a CD.
1.) How Long
2.) All She Wants To Do Is Dance
3.) Take It Easy
4.) James Dean
5.) Life In The Fast Lane
6.) Party Town
7.) Strange Weather
8.) Love In The 21st Century
9.) I've Got Mine
10.) Before The Ship Goes Down
11.) Part Of You
12.) Brave New World
13.) Livin' Right
14.) Common Ground
15.) Smugglers Blues
16.) You Belong To The City
17.) Who's Been Sleeping In My Bed
Henley and Frey have decent full albums, available in audiophile formats too! Frey has a couple of decent solo tracks
, but his post-Eagles career was mostly underwhelming.
That would be along the lines of the Genesis R-Kive 3 disc comp which had some odd solo choices and essential songs missing.
A "definitive" Eagles and solo comp would probably need 5 discs to do it justice which defeats the whole purpose of it.
I wouldn't buy an Eagles compilation no matter what was on it.
No, but because I have compilations for Henley, Frey and Walsh that I enjoy along with the seven Eagles studio albums... Then again knowing me I better vote Yes because I'd probably buy it anyway.
Yes! Maybe I could finally get Who Owns This Place remastered.
I'm open to the idea in theory, but I'm guessing the Frey songs would be his big hits, which (except for "True Love") I wouldn't want. Never cared for Joe Walsh solo, although I do like some of his James Gang stuff.
So, if I got to choose which songs, absolutely. But given that I wouldn't get to choose, the answer is I almost certainly wouldn't buy it. (No need for an Eagles compilation anyway, when I already have all their albums.)
i think glenn frey's 'strange weather' is one of the most underrated albums of all time
Sure, why not? Sounds like a true "career-spanning" Eagles set that includes solo material would be a great package!
Already have : Eagles - Farewell I. Tour - Live From Melbourne
And please don't waste your time arguing that it's video. It has high resolution audio as well, and for me that's enough to qualify.
"Eagles Flying Solo"
A 5 Disc compendium of all the best songs recorded by each of The Eagles musicians, even before and after they were members!
Here is the collection you demanded, all the greatest songs by Don Henley, Glenn Frey, Joe Walsh, Bernie Leadon, Don Felder, Randy Meisner, and Timothy B Schmidt!
Plus a special bonus disc of great Shiloh, Longbranch Pennywhistle, Flying Burrito Brothers, The Poor, James Gang and Poco songs!
The very nature of being "solo" songs, recorded separately and apart from The Eagles, seems contradictory to assembling a compilation, combining those tracks together.
How about compilations of other bands' solo tracks?
The Who can release various Townshend, Daltrey, Entwhistle, and Moon tracks as "Who Are We".
(This is reminiscent of the Beatles threads that fantasize and compile solo tracks as reconstituted Fab Four albums.)
Unless a treasure trove of great demos and out takes are provided, then I can't see the justification nor purpose, any more than just another product to sell the fans.
Gather everything the band and any of its members have ever released in a massive box set...
"The Really Long Run"
I would not buy a comp with any Eagles content, solo or otherwise.
Can someone settle this once and for all - was there a Linda Ronstadt album where she had the nascent Eagles as her backing band? And if so, was it Silk Purse (as I've been told once or twice), or something else?
1. Yes, there is a Linda Ronstadt album which featured Frey, Henley, Meisner and Leadon on it, along with JD Souther and others. The Eagles formed with Linda's blessing after the recording.
2. No, it is not Silk Purse. It is 1972's self-titled Linda Ronstadt.
It would need to be a 4 or 5 CD set like the CSN box set. 2 CD's would barely scrap the surface covering the solo stuff AND the Eagles.
Thank you kindly. I listened to Silk Purse but it's very obviously a Nashville sound on that record. If this mythical compilation that the OP was asking about ever comes to life, I'd put a song or two from Linda Ronstadt on there.
