Glenn Frey's Solo Career Summarized With New Four-Disc Box: "Glenn Frey's solo career is getting the deluxe retrospective treatment with a new box set that collects hits and deep cuts, as well as live recordings and out-of-print early sides.
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.
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."
