Glenn Frey: Soul Searchin’ (1988)

frey soul searchin

By Scott Goldfine

Ex-Eagle Glenn Frey steps out on his third solo effort, but first in four years with “Soul Searchin.’” The music is basic, easygoing pop with inflections of Philly and Memphis soul augmenting the arrangements. The lyrics concern love gained, lost and life’s positive aspects.

“Some Kind of Blue” and the title cut are nice, but this disc is mostly too tame and uneventful, even for Eagles’ fans.
