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.

Excellent

This is Eagles hits pre Joe Walsh. I love Joe Walsh, but Eagles 1971-75 is their best work. Nothing against Hotel California or the Long Run. Both excellent and highly successful records, but the Eagles lost their "California country" vibe once Joe joined the band. I prefer Eagles without Joe. The tunes on 1971-75 will stand the test of time. Your great, great Grandchildren will be listening to this record in whatever format exists in 2113...

Eagles

This album represents the end of an era for the Eagles after this album they switched over to more rock n roll but before this it was kind of a mix between rock,country,and a little bluegrass which I thought was the best of their work,but I like all the Eagles work but I like the One of These Nights and back the best...but I recommend buying all of there songs cause there're all great!

The Eagles in Their Prime

During 1971-1975 the Eagles were at their very best in my humble opinion. Every song on this album is a classic. I listened to their music in Vietnam in 1971 and have never stopped listening ot it. That being said, Joe Walsh was and still is one of the best rock guitarist around and is still rocking today. With Joe on board the band evolved and continued on down the road into rock and roll history.
