Glenn Frey “Above The Clouds!” His Greatest Solo Hits! His Longbranch/Pennywhistle Album! A Live DVD Concert Performance Too!

Glenn Frey – “Above The Clouds!”

Eagles fans are rejoicing! The late Eagles singer – and successful solo Artist Glenn Frey, is getting a terrific retrospective CD / DVD release!

Ultimateclassicrock.com had the best story – as always – about the release. As they report:

Titled ‘Above the Clouds: The Collection’, the four-disc set is scheduled to arrive in stores May 11. After a first disc focusing on the Eagles co-founder’s hit solo singles — which will also be available as a standalone release — Clouds moves on to less well-known material, including songs from his 2012 ‘After Hours’ release.

But here’s the best part:


The Digital Debut Of Longbranch / Pennywhistle!

Most Eagles fans know about this legendary, early work by Frey, but as Ultimateclassicrock.com notes:

“With its third and fourth discs, Above the Clouds offers material that should be of most interest to collectors — starting with the digital debut of ‘Longbranch/Pennywhistle’, the 1969 LP Frey recorded as a duo with longtime collaborator JD Souther. Previously available on CD only as an import, the album is followed here with a DVD presenting footage of a Frey show from Sept. 15, 1992, during the tour in support of his ‘Strange Weather’ release.”

Wow!

  1. I ore-ordered mine the date it was announced. Can’t wait

  2. Hi John..Still kind of strange that he is no longer with us, however this CD will be a huge reminder on how great Glenn was. It’s great seeing his son DEACON play and he is fantastic. Thanks for the info on the new DISC set!

  3. Despite always liking The Eagles, I never warmed to his solo work in the same way. This new album and DVD is a nice tribute though.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. I’m still sad he has passed. thanks for highlighting this album. Looks great!
