    Default Eagles/Solo song recommendations

    As the majority of the posters on here are long time fans, I'm hoping y'all can help me and any other new fan.

    I've been slowly going through the Eagles' albums and finding songs I like that aren't necessary the "hits" (or songs always played live.) My problem is that I don't have easy access to the band members' solo albums. I was wondering if y'all could give me some song recommendations/your favorite songs as a good starting off point.

    I'll also happily take any Eagles recommendations as well.

    I don't know if you like ballads, but Glenn's "I did it for your love" is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard.

    This is a cover that Genn played live in the early 80s. It's guaranteed to cheer me up. https://www.pastemagazine.com/articl...ol-jerk23.html

    I'm not saying it's my favourite Glenn Frey, "ever ever" but it's something that you won't come across often.

    If you have Spotify, all of Glenn's solo albums are available there, so you can pick and choose.

    "A Walk in the Dark" from "Strange Weather" is wonderful. I also like "I Volunteer" and "That Girl" from the "No Fun Aloud" album.

    I wholeheartedly recommend this. One of Don's absolute best, and I believe the only song he has ever written alone. You can tell he has genuine care and concern for the song's subject.

    From the Eagles' discography I recommend Bitter Creek, Saturday Night, Ol' 55, After the Thrill Is Gone, my beloved namesake, and The Sad Cafe. Bits and pieces from LROOE are also worth your time: I Don't Want to Hear Any More, What Do I Do with My Heart and Somebody.

    I have no idea if it is to your musical tastes, but I would also say Joe's Barnstorm album if you want to see a side to him that sadly faded as years went by. It is probably my favourite album ever.

    Here are some of my favorite cuts that I think are worth checking out as they more or less offer something a bit different either musically and/or lyrically (as far as I know none were released as singles):

    Eagles: Take The Devil
    Desperado: Bitter Creek/ Desperado-Doolin Dalton Reprise
    On the Border: Olí 55
    One of These Nights: Journey of the Sorcerer
    Hotel California: Pretty Maids All in a Row/ Try and Love Again
    The Long Run: The Sad Cafe
    Long Road Out of Eden: Waiting in the Weeds, You Are Not Alone

    For some solo stuff outside the box...

    Bernie - What Do I Own (great lyrics)
    [ame]http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=giTJKqkFQMs[/ame]

    Randy - Gotta Get Away (fans have wondered what heís referring to in the song i.e. what does he want to get away from)
    [ame]http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=das_G44Q3XE[/ame]

    Right or wrong, whatís done is done
    Itís only moments that you borrow...
