The Eagles changed the game 44 years ago today (February 17) with Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975).

Meant as a way to boost record label revenue while the band was making Hotel California, Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975) was a monster and was the first release to be Platinum certified (1 million copies sold) by the Recording Industry Association of America.

Of course, this set would go on to sell far more than 1 million copies.  In honor of its release anniversary, here is Their Greatest Hits (1971-1975) by the numbers.
