What you want to look for are any Eagles CDs that have been digitally remastered to 24-bit technology in the recent past. Many older recordings and albums are being digitally remastered to 24-bit which usually sounds great as compared to perhaps the first CD release back in the 80s or 90s. Another excellent format is SACDs. If you don't have an SACD player, then look to purchase hybrid SACDs which can play on standard units. Try cduniverse.com. If you have a decent home theater multi-channel system, definetly get the Eagles Farewell 1 Tour on DVD (Blu-ray also) from Melbourne, Australia. Hotel Californis is performed along with most of their huge hits and some new songs as well. Magnificently recorded for such a large concert hall.
Thanks for the feedbacks. The reviewer on Amazon.com said the CD version of Hell Frezes Over eliminated a few songs as compared to the DVD version.
My ARC CD7 doesn't play DVDs so I have to play DVD with an unsophisticated Blue-ray player, which defeats the purpose of getting a higher quality media.
Can you name a few album with excellent recordings?
I'm afraid you shouldn't focus on the sound quality. There were mono albums, etc. Just enjoy the music. Have a shot of your favorite, relax and enjoy. Their music will go down in history as prime examples of a genre in the 20th century. Prabably be heard 200 years from now in summertime - that's pretty cool.
