Description

With five number one singles, fourteen Top 40 hits, and four number one albums, the Eagles were among the most successful recording artists of the 1970s. At the end of the 20th century, two of those albums – Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) and Hotel California – ranked among the ten best-selling albums ever.

Selected Works: 1972–1999 is a compilation box set by the Eagles, released in 2000. The box set consists of four CDs featuring their greatest hits, album tracks, previously unreleased live performances and 44-page booklet.

Review
The relative sonic neglect suffered by the Eagles' catalog was the fault of the band's consistent success – with the original albums and hits collections still selling year after year, why bother to upgrade? Finally, however, longtime Eagles producer Bill Szymczyk remastered their albums in 1999, and the band put together a box set. Including most of their hits (the exception is “Seven Bridges Road”) and lots of album tracks, the four-CD set regroups the Eagles' material into three categories: “The Early Days,” which consists of 13 tracks from their first four albums; “The Ballads”; and “The Fast Lane,” i.e., rhythm songs. The fourth disc is drawn from their millennium concert at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. While their early albums balanced the contributions of their members, “The Early Days” is dominated by Glenn Frey and Don Henley; that means a few worthy efforts are missing, but the selection is generally good. “The Ballads” is a straightforward collection of popular slow songs. Along with their more uptempo hits, “The Fast Lane” contains what little unreleased material there is, but anyone hoping for greatness is going to be disappointed. the Eagles have gone out of their way in “The Millennium Concert” to perform songs out of their usual repertoire, including several solo hits and both sides of their 1978 seasonal single, “Please Come Home for Christmas” and “Funky New Year.” Much of this is minor or atypical material, but at least the unusually animated band members were trying (though it sounds like there was plenty of studio overdubbing). The overall result is a nearly four-hour collection that is something of a hodgepodge. There are enough rarities to bait the hook for hardcore Eagles fans, but not really satisfy them, and casual fans will probably be better off with the two single-disc hits collections.
