Best work: Take it to the Limit
Randy is my Eagles bass player of choice, because he too was a part of that Eagles country sound. Randy's bass lines just kick; listen to Outlaw Man or One of These Nights to realize that. I also enjoy many of his songs, with Take it to the Limit and Try and Love Again being my favorites. I personally feel that Meisner's voice was somewhat weak and screachy in the beginning, but he improved his singing immensely later in their career and I enjoy his voice very much. It is unfortunate that he decided to leave, because he was an integral part of the band.
