Eagles announce career-spanning box sets

Comprehensive 12 CD/DVD/Blu-ray Set Spans the Legendary Band’s Career

The Eagles created an indelible musical legacy over an extraordinary career that spans more than 40 years and includes six number one albums, more than a dozen Top 40 hits, and six GRAMMY Awards. This fall, Legacy will bring together all the music that made the Eagles one of the best-selling bands in music history in one extraordinary collection.

Two versions of Legacy will be available on November 2nd. 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 on DVD and Farewell Tour: Live From Melbourne on Blu-ray.

A vinyl version of Legacy will also be available the same day featuring all of the music on the CDs across 15 LPs, but none of the videos. Both sets are housed in handsome 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 phenomenal 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 stage of the band’s storied career, from the country-rock of early albums like Desperado and the superstar 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,” “Heartbreak Tonight” “No More Cloudy Days” and “Get Over It.”

The Eagles – Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B. Schmit, with Deacon Frey and Vince Gill – are in the midst of their extensive 2018 North American tour that began in March and continues through December.
