About this album

Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975) is the fifth album by the American rock band the Eagles, a compilation of singles released on Asylum Records in 1976. As of November 2009, 29,000,000 copies have been shipped. In the domestic market, making it tied with Michael Jackson’s Thriller as the best-selling album in the United States. With an additional 13 million internationally, for a total of 42 million, it is one of the top-selling albums in the world.

Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) comprises nine best-selling singles released between 1972 and 1975, as well as “Desperado”, which had never been previously released as an A-side. All single tracks but “Tequila Sunrise” charted in the Top 40, with five in the Top Ten, and “One of These Nights” and “Best of My Love” both topping the singles chart. With such airplay success in the span of a little over four years, the band became a formidable presence on American commercial radio in the 1970s, and Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975) debuted at number four on the Billboard 200 album chart upon its release.

On February 24 1976, the album achieved the distinction of being the first to receive the RIAA Platinum award, in recognition of one million shipments in the United States. On November 10, 1999, it became the all-time best-selling album in the United States when it was certified 26× Multi Platinum.

    My dad played this album so many times when I was a kid I actually threw it away. xD But I enjoy it now, with the exception of Take it Easy. That was just permanently killed for me.

    This is the 2nd best selling album of all time, and doesn't even have any songs from Hotel California.
