My Eagles Lps have suffer quite a bit over the years, anyone got this box set?
The pressing/mastering is any good?
Don't know about the box set. I do have a couple of albums (greatest hits on CD) and Desperado on vinyl. TBH, they just sound so lame. Mind you, I've never been a big fan of the late 60/early 70s LA music scene.

I like Eagles , as I like James Taylor, Allan Taylor, Chris Jones and other folk/country singer and song writers.
And you have created a thread ( if my memory serves my right) about "If there was any Funky/ Soul/ Blues likers" here in the forum, what i've replyed saying that you were not alone in this subject, as i'm not in Eagles Liking...
For me the Eagles are the type of group you leave in the car and play when there's no traffic congestion being reported on the radio.
As regards the hippy/post hippy LA sound, I just find them a little conceited, and the Eagles were apart of that movement that swept across the US (1968-1972 approx).
For something a little different, and personally love listen to this.
Does it really matter as long as the tunes are good?
"Knocking on a bit", apparently
They are the original pressings, not remastered I believe. No negative comments regarding quality in 50+ Amazon reviews. They are a fine set of albums by an oustanding band.
One of our regulars bought one from us last weekend - I can ask him what he thinks when he pops in this weekend?
