It's tough to forecast which bands are built for the long run. The Eagles emerged as part of a genre (country rock) that proved to be a passing fancy. And with two talented frontmen sharing the spotlight, how could artistic differences be fended off for long? But, of course, Don Henley, Glenn Fry and the boys had a juggernaut on their hands, generating a dozen top-10 hits in their initial eight-year spurt. Selected Works 1972-1999 gathers all the highlights from the group in all of its 1970s/early 1980s glory on four discs, dubbed "The Early Years", "The Ballads" and "The Fast Lane". The handsome box is fleshed out with a live disc from New Year's Eve 1999 ("A Night To Remember"). With striking packaging, extensive liner notes and a surplus of vintage photos, Selected Works is a suitable retrospective on a band that defined the California sound and took it easy, and, in the process, took it to the limit. --Steven Stolder
