Description by OLDIES.com:

Now available for pre-order, EAGLES: THE STUDIO ALBUMS 1972-1979 contains all six of the Eagles' Asylum studio albums from 1972-1979: EAGLES * DESPERADO * ON THE BORDER * ONE OF THESE NIGHTS * HOTEL CALIFORNIA * THE LONG RUN.

Packaged in a sleek, black clamshell box, EAGLES: THE STUDIO ALBUMS 1972-1979 showcases each of the six studio albums that helped the band define an era, including the No. 1 albums ONE OF THESE NIGHTS, HOTEL CALIFORNIA and THE LONG RUN.

THE STUDIO ALBUMS 1972-1979 kicks off with the band's 1972 debut, EAGLES, the first of several of the band's albums produced by the acclaimed Glyn Johns. The disc spawned the hits "Witchy Woman," "Take It Easy" and "Peaceful Easy Feeling," and is followed by DESPERADO, which quickly went gold after its release in 1973, thanks to the title track and "Tequila Sunrise."

Remembered for the faves "Already Gone" and the smash "Best Of My Love," 1974's ON THE BORDER follows. That disc was the precursor to the Eagles' first No. 1 album, 1975's Grammy-decorated ONE OF THESE NIGHTS, a quick and huge hit that is home to "Take It To The Limit," the title track and "Lyin' Eyes."

Additionally, THE STUDIO ALBUMS 1972-1979 includes 1976's HOTEL CALIFORNIA, the album that immortalized the band with the unforgettable title song as well as the Top 20 hits "Life In The Fast Lane" and "New Kid In Town." HOTEL CALIFORNIA was followed up in 1979 by the band's third consecutive No. 1, THE LONG RUN, yet another multi-platinum effort made famous for the title track, "I Can't Tell You Why" and the No. 1 hit "Heartache Tonight."

This four-disc box set takes the listener on a detailed tour of the Eagles' career. One of the most successful American groups of the '70s, the Eagles combined country-rock roots with the burgeoning L.A. soft-rock aesthetic that reigned in the U.S. at the time. The artfully arranged SELECTED WORKS moves from the early, earthy "Take it Easy" and "Already Gone" to the pure pop balladry of "The Best of My Love," "I Can't Tell You Why," and the roadhouse rock of "Heartache Tonight" and "Life in the Fast Lane."
The unerringly infectious melodies and carefully constructed, tight-as-a-drum arrangements go a long way toward explaining why some regarded the Eagles as the "American Beatles." The live material included on the fourth disc offers an au natural glimpse of the band, revealing that they were solid even with all the studio polish stripped away.
