On Feb. 17, 1976. the Eagles released “Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975)” album. The record was a singles compilation album. As of November 2012, 29 million 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 the third-best selling album in music history, behind Thriller and Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon.
The number of records sold has increased, but in all honesty, every “chart’ has different numbers. We are not sure how many copies it has actually sold, but we do know it has has sold, excuse the expression, a shit load.
We have never been able to figure out why some people love the Eagles and others can’t stand them.
We think they have recorded some great music.
Happy 42nd Birthday to “Their Greatest Hits” by the Eagles!!!
