greatest hits cover 385x280 35 Years Ago Today The Eagles Made Music HistoryFebruary 24, 1976.  [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Eagles[/lastfm] did something that had never been done before.  It has to do with their first Greatest Hits album.  

It was the first album ever to be certified platnium for sales of over 1,000,000 copies.  As of today it has sold over 29,000,000 copies and is the seco biggest selling album of all time.  Michael Jackson’s Thriller is the biggest album selling more than 30,000,000 copies.

Glen Frey and Don Henley recall one of the songs from the album they thought was a hit from the moment they finished it.

    I actually have the album in the car today and was playing it on my way to Jury Duty and then on the way to work. Love the album and the band. The Eagles are my FAVORITE band … no other band compares. I also just had in my car … played it yesterday … Don Henley’s Actual Miles … another GREAT album.

      It is one of the all time classics – not a bad cut on the album, which is why it’s now the second biggest selling album of all time – Thanks for the comment Monica.

    I’ve had this album forever in various formats. It is truly one of the BEST bands EVER!!! They should be Artist of The Week every other week!
