    Default Celebration of the "Solo Collection"

    I noticed in Today In Eagles History that Glenn's Solo Collection was released 15 years ago today. Now, I know this was a compilation album, but it did include four awesome new songs that I wanted to pay homage to. So ...

    This Way To Happiness
    Who's Been Sleeping In My Bed
    Common Ground
    Call On Me

    I love you all and wanted to give you the special mention that I think you deserve. You all ROCK!!!

    The vocal on "This Way to Happiness" is one of his best. He really belts it out. Listen here:

    It's peculiar that out of those four songs the only one he's played live is WBSIMB, which he didn't write .... it's the least effective of the four songs, although he probably thinks it's more 'fun'.

    My personal favourite of these is Call On Me. It rocks. I love the way he sings it.

    I love the four new songs from this album, especially This Way To Happiness and Common Ground, I like the two other songs also but This Way To Happiness and Common Ground are are somehow special to me, however I can not even say why!

    I love WBSIMB. I do think that it is such a fun song. I think the others are very stong songs, love them too!
