Eagles: Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975 (1976)
This Eagles record was another garage sale find from ages ago. I am not a big Eagles fan. In fact, I am bored by most of their music. The best thing about this record is that it was released in February 1976, about 10 months prior to the Hotel California album, meaning that the insipid and ludicrous title track is not on this compilation.
In the early days, The Eagles were a country-rock outfit. Later, they morphed into a soft rock disaster. Clearly, the earlier music is far more interesting than the later output.
