    Meet the Eels: Essential Eels 1996-2006, Vol. 1 Notes

    Meet The EELS: Essential EELS Vol. 1, 1996-2006 spans the first decade of the EELS with 24 selections on CD and 12 promotional videos on DVD. The CD opens with four tracks from the band’s 1996 debut Beautiful Freak, two tracks from the Eels’ highly acclaimed second album 1998’s Electro-shock Blues follow plus a previously unreleased Jon Brion remix of “Climbing To The Moon.”

    Four songs from 2000’s Daisies Of The Galaxy, which NME dubbed “a masterpiece in almost every way,” are represented on the Essentials album plus three tracks from 2001’s Souljacker, which Time Magazine crowned as one of the best albums of the year, was acclaimed overseas with NME calling it “downright brilliant” and the London’s Sunday Times named it Album Of The Year, writing that “the conventional wisdom that {the earlier album} Electro-shock Blues was E’s masterpiece will have to be reassessed: it was clearly just one of his masterpieces.”

    2003’s live-in-the-studio Shootenanny! (awarded four stars by Rolling Stone) adds two fan favorites, while five songs from the highly acclaimed, and best charting album in the band’s history Blinking Lights and Other Revelations are included. Also on the Essentials album are the previously unreleased “Get Ur Freak On,” a live version of “Dirty Girl” from 2006’s With Strings: Live At Town Hall and “I Need Some Sleep” from the Shrek 2 soundtrack.
