February 17th. 1976… The Eagles (Actually just “Eagles”) released a simple collection of their best songs from the previous 4 years… And it became HUGE.  It was the first album to ever go Platinum – Over a Million Sold!  … and to this day is the 2nd best-seller of all time, behind Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”.  After the recent passing of Glenn Frey, I wouldn’t be surprised if it gets close to the top spot…

I cherish my original 8-Track copy!
