4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent compilation Sept. 14 2003
Format:Audio CD
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.
PROS:
-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!
CONS:
-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.
OVERALL:
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Typical Greatest Hits (Not) April 11 2000
Format:Audio CD
As with most Greatest Hits collections, the record company leaves off just enough hits to make you wonder "What they were thinking?" They also put on a few tracks that make you wonder "What were they thinking?" Here, there are some obscure tracks that clearly are "filler" while omitting some of his best tracks from rock radio and even Top 40 Hits? Where is I Found Somebody? (Oops, that was only his first Top 40 "hit") Where is "Partytown"? (Probably his best party song and a big hit on AOR radio in the early 80's). "Don't Give Up" was also a rock radio track and a great song from his first album. I would title this album "Some Hits, Some Mediocre Stuff, Some Stuff Sorely Missing, Sorry." Now, where is that Eagles box set we have been waiting 20 years for?

4.0 out of 5 stars An almost perfect collection of Frey's hits. June 6 2003
Format:Audio CD
Glenn Frey is the perfect guy for a greatest hits compilation, seeing as alot of his hits weren't on studio albums, but instead from soundtracks (like Kenny Loggins). Nowadays some of these songs are also available on a ton of 80s hits compilations, but it's still nice to have most of his big songs in one place.
As for his early hits, there's the somewhat harder rock of the drug tale "Smuggler's Blues", the fast paced, pop/rock urgency in "The Heat Is On." There's also the pretty, softer, more serious relationship song "The One You Love" which has an 80s sound, but strongly resembles some of the Eagle's lighter songs. There's also my favorite Glenn song, the saxophone driven mid tempo, cool, yet slightly edgy "You Belong To The City" from Miami Vice.
There's also a few songs from that era I didn't recognize, but are good, like the laid back, poppy and fun "Sexy Girl", the uptempo, somewhat 70s sounding rocker "Call On Me", the pleasant melodic pop of "True Love", and Thelma & Louise's theme, the classic rocking, Jackson Browne sounding "Part Of Me, Part Of You." There's also the very last hit he had that I know of, the lighter, melodic rock of "I've Got Mine" which is a more serious song about the homeless. I forget the name of the album that came from, but one problem here is this includes 3 more songs, the extremely slow piano ballad "River Of Dreams", the instrumental "Rising Sun", and the serious soft rocker about staying together through hard times, "Brave New World". That song is nice, but the other 2 should've been left off here. Seeing as by the early 90s, Glenn was going for a more Adult Contemporary sound, and these songs likely will be considered boring and unappealing to someone who maybe only bought this becasuse "The Heat Is On rules, Dude!
