Eagles Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 is the second compilation album by the Eagles. It features many of their biggest hits not on Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975), including "Hotel California," their signature song. The album was released in 1982, after the band had broken up. That same year, Don Henley and Glenn Frey both released their debut solo albums.

The compilation features eight combined tracks from Hotel California and The Long Run. Also included is "After the Thrill Is Gone," an album track from One of These Nights. (That song, with its title that summed up the state of the band at the time, was strategically placed as the last track on Greatest Hits, Vol. 2.) "Seven Bridges Road," the single from 1980's Eagles Live, rounds out the album, which has sold over 11 million copies in the U.S. since its release.
