The most successful compilation album of all-time, The EaglesTheir Greatest Hits 1971-1975, and its followup, Eagles Greatest Hits, Volume 2, have been combined into new 2-CD and 2-LP packages. The CD version was released on July 14, with the vinyl out this Friday, July 21.

The band’s single-LP version of Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975 was originally released in 1976 and spent 133 weeks on the Billboard albums chart, eventually certified platinum an amazing 29 times over. It contains music from the group’s first four albums (the pre-Joe Walsh period) and is now generally acknowledged to be the best-selling album of all-time in the United States. In its original run, the album debuted at #4 in Billboard and then rose to #1, where it remained for five weeks.

But even when it eventually fell off the chart, the album’s sales continued to be massive. It’s said to have now sold over 42 million copies worldwide, placing it sixth overall behind Michael Jackson’s Thriller (65 million), AC/DC’s Back in Black (50), Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon (45), The Bodyguard soundtrack (44) and Meat Loaf’s Bat Out of Hell (43).

Volume 2 was released in 1982 following the band’s breakup and features mostly songs from the Hotel California and The Long Run albums. Although it only peaked at #52 on the album chart, it too has continued to sell steadily, allowing the album to attain its multi-platinum status. At last count Vol. 2 had racked up some 11 million sales total.
