Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975)
Released: Feb 1976
Right up there with fellow '70s titans The Dark Side of the Moon and Rumours, Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975) is one of the biggest-selling records in the history of music, period. The Eagles might have fancied themselves album-oriented artistes adept at highfalutin' concepts (see both Hotel California and Desperado), but as the success of this collection proves, the group excelled at singles. These nuggets of gloriously catchy roots-pop have withstood obsessive listening through decades and generations. "Already Gone," "Take It Easy," "Tequila Sunrise" -- it's all sonic crack!
