I'm just completely speculating, folks, and maybe I'm way off base, but I do think it's something akin to that, where some kind of restriction or financial issue is keeping the music off any Greatest Hits collection rather than it being an artistic choice.

    That's soo sad. I still don't know why Glenn and Don went with Asylum for their solo career. They both had problems with them.

    Even if its speculation, I wouldn't be surprised if that's the reason. Luckily Don didn't have this problem with his music, but that sad about No Fun Aloud.

    Don't trust a guy who burned you before. IMO It looks like a payback from what the Eagles did in the 70s when they sued Asylum for their rights on their songs.

    Brothers for life. RIP Glenn

    I'm not sure I believe in fate, but I know that crossing paths with Glenn Lewis Frey in 1970 changed my life forever, and it eventually had an impact on the lives of millions of other people all over the planet. It will be very strange going forward in a world without him in it. But, I will be grateful, every day, that he was in my life. Rest in peace, my brother. You did what you set out to do, and then some." -Don Henley

    My second favorite Glenn album as well... But, depending on the mood, I'll reach for it first.

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO NO FUN ALOUD!!!

    I adore this album - and as I have often said ... My apologies to Glenn, but I have fun when I listen to this album. Just can't help myself.

    And I was scrolling through this thread, I saw this post of Soda's from several years ago. I thought I would quote it for those of you who may not have ever read the liner notes for the album. Here's Glenn in his own words ...

    Well, what d'ya know? A happy song! In 1971, on my first trip to Alabama, a guitar player named Eddie Hinton showed me the fingering for what I call the Bobby Womack Chinese soul licks. I am ever grateful.

    The One You Love
    GLENN FREY / JACK TEMPCHIN
    Jack and I were on a roll. We had 4 or 5 good songs written and 3 more started. Sometimes when you're going good there are unwritten songs out in the cosmos who get jealous of the songs you're writing and say, "Hey, why don't you write me too!" This song came knocking in just that way.

    Woke up with a minor hangover in Muscle Shoals, needed to feel better. Took 3 Excedrin, opened a beer and said, "We're doing Sea Cruise today with live horns." Felt better right away.
