Solo Collection is a greatest hits album of Glenn Frey's solo career, released in 1995 (see 1995 in music).

Reception[edit]

Professional ratings
Review scores
Source Rating
Allmusic 4.5/5 stars[1]

AllMusic reviewer Stephen Thomas Erlewine gave the album four and a half stars out of five, stating "Solo Collection performs a welcome service by collecting the highlights from his decidedly uneven solo albums, including all of his biggest hits. Not only is it a perfect introduction, it's arguably the most consistent solo record Frey ever released."[1]

The album did not chart in its initial 1995 release, but reached No. 82 on Billboard 200 in 2016 after Frey's death.[2]
