    Not good enough

    Sorry to say it but this box set doesn¿t live up to my expectations. Only disc 3 doesn¿t suffer from too short a playing time, and when you listen to the comment (»welcome back to the second half of our show«, which comes 25 minutes into the 60 minutes long live disc) you can¿t help but think which songs you have missed out on. 60 minutes - they surely could have put on 3 or 4 more songs, couldn¿t they? As for the booklet it surely misses a discography. Personally I have all Eagles¿ records on the shelf, but for the new Eagles fan it must be confusing not to be able to see from which records the songs are taken. That said it¿s a fine idea with the themes on the 3 studio CD¿s but it¿s not enough to justify byuing the box. The few new songs are not that interesting, either.

    How not to put out a box set.

    Everything that you don't want in a box set is here. Starting with disc one (The early years) whose running time is a meager 50 minutes. Why the compiliers felt the need to not include more album tracks from the first three albums is a mystery. With a possible 6 or 7 more songs (Take the Devil,Midnight Flyer, Ol'55, Bitter Creek, Out of Control, Journey of the Sorcerers are the main omissions) the first disc would have gotten the set off on the right foot. Disc two (The ballads) also suffers from the same problems as the first disc. Short running time and missing key album tracks. Disc three is the most complete of the set including most of non ballad tracks off Hotel California and The Long Run. Included is a brief glimpse into studio sessions, nothing revealing...mostly filler. Disc four is the Millenium Concert which is interesting, sometimes good, and material which has never been released. While the box is impressive the book looks like it belongs in a box set made 12 years ago. Another bummer. All five studio albums, the studio tracks plus any high quality live material could have easily fit on four discs. Add to that an informative and historical book with discography and sessionography info...Now that would be a good box set. Unless you really want the Millennium Concert material stick with the individual albums or greatest hits packages already available.
