I'd be interested in hearing some opinions about what some of you would suggest to folks that may want to get a sample of Randy's solo work. And don't say all of them. :lol: I'm thinking maybe if you were going to make one compilation CD, what 10 - 15 songs would you include on it?

It's nice to see both of you included "Tonight", I am listening to his solo stuff for the first time right now and that song blew my mind!! The guitar solo, mainly, but it really stood out from anything else so far!

I haven't heard everything yet though...but with the exception of Tonight, these songs lack that spark that his songs with the Eagles had.

It bums me out that he didn't write a lot, I always prefer when someone actually writes their own songs. But I love Randy regardless, his voice, his personality, and Take It to the Limit being my favorite Eagles song has a lot to do with it too! ;-)

This thread is great! :) I've been a long time fan of The Eagles, and just recently discovered Randy's solo material. I must say I'm quite impressed; I've always thought he was a great singer and bassist with the Eagles. It's a shame that he didn't get the same popularity as Henley, Frey, or even Walsh as a solo artist as well as being part of the 1994 Hell Freezes Over tour...but that's a different thread altogether. It's nice to know there's a place fans can get together and share their admiration for Randy Meisner. :thumbsup:
