EAGLES - The Very Best Of The Eagles (2003)
This double-disc collection paints a more focused portrait of one of the biggest-selling American rock acts of all time than the Eagles' exhaustive box set, Selected Works: 1972-1999, but one with finer detail than the band's two mega-platinum selling greatest hits packages. Very Best includes all 20 songs found on those two albums from the easygoing rock of "Take It Easy" through the live "Seven Bridges Road," recorded in 1980 and spotlighting the group's rich, four-part harmonies and much more. Deeper album tracks, such as the soaring Tom Waits cover "Ol' 55," the Don Henley-sung, Philly soul-influenced "Wasted Time," and the Joe Walsh rocker "In the City," offer a richer appreciation of a band always game to stretch their stylistic reach. The set is fleshed out by the Eagles' more-soul-than-blues version of Charles Brown's holiday ballad "Please Come Home for Christmas," originally released in '78, and two studio cuts from the 1994 reunion album, Hell Freezes Over and brings fans up to date with Henley and Glenn Frey's 9/11 think piece "Hole in the World," a fittingly subdued ballad with intertwining vocals. 1, 2, 3, 4.
