Although the Eagles had disbanded, many of its members went on to solo careers. A popular member of the band to go on to a solo career was Glenn Frey. In the eighties, he shelled out a number of pop-rock masterpieces - now available in a single collection. Read on for my review of Glenn Frey - Solo Collection.
-This compilation is exactly what the casual fan will want. Frey's biggest solo hits were You Belong To The City, Smuggler's Blues, and The Heat Is On (written by the one and only Harold Faltermeyer), and they're all here!
-The previously unreleased tracks are good (but don't expect anything revolutionary from them.)
-The compilation doesn't just rely on the hits, there are a number of underrated masterpieces here as well.
-Many of these tracks originally appeared on soundtracks, so it's good to finally have them all in one place.
-There's an import only bonus track!
-The tracks aren't all in the original release order (why do hits compilations do this!?)
-The compilation doesn't fill the eighty minutes that can fit onto a single CD.
-Partytown isn't here! What really makes me mad is they had room to fit it on here.
-This is a SOLO COLLECTION and nothing more, so don't buy this expecting to find any Eagles tracks.
Despite a few complaints, this is an excellent hits package. Any fans of eighties pop-rock would be doing themselves a huge favor by picking up this compilation.
