Eagles Release Comprehensive ‘Legacy’ Set: Listen

Share This:

A new collection from Rhino Records, Eagles Legacy, has been released in two versions on Nov. 2. The first has 12 CDs and includes all seven of the band’s studio albums, three live albums and a compilation of singles and B-sides. It also includes two concert videos: Hell Freezes Over (DVD) and Farewell Tour: Live From Melbourne (Blu-ray).

A vinyl version of Legacy was also made available the same day. It has all the music from the CDs on 15 LPs, but none of the videos. Both sets are housed in slipcases and accompanied by a 54-page hardbound book that’s filled with rare and unseen photos, memorabilia and artwork that encompasses the band’s entire career.

Grammy-winning mastering engineer Bob Ludwig remastered Hell Freezes Over and Millennium Concert especially for Legacy. Both albums, along with several tracks from the Singles and B-Sides compilation, are being released on vinyl for the first time ever as part of this collection, save for a small European vinyl pressing of Hell Freezes Over around its original release in 1994. In addition, the double-album Eagles Live is making its long-awaited return to vinyl in this set after being out-of-print for decades.

Legacy follows the Eagles through the different stages of the band’s career, from the country-rock of early albums like Desperado and the success of Hotel California, to the band’s 1994 reunion Hell Freezes Over and its most-recent studio album, 2005’s Long Road Out of Eden. All of the band’s hits, deep cuts and fan favorites are here, including “Take It Easy,” “Already Gone,” “Hotel California,” “Please Come Home For Christmas,” “Heartache Tonight” “No More Cloudy Days” and “Get Over It.”

    Please note the song is “Heartache Tonight”. Someone above named it “Heartbreak Tonight”. Forgive me; I’m an Eagles Fanatic.

      Oof… good catch, Jeff. (Believe it or not, the label got it wrong in their announcement but we should’ve caught it.) Corrected.
