    Part three of my "Do You Own [insert album]" series. :p

    The Eagles - Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975. Dark Side of the Moon's contender for second best selling album of all time. Not really an album, another "best of/greatest hits" compilation of songs from their first four albums. I own(ed) cassette, CD, and mp3 copies of the album. I love it. If you sat me at a campfire and handed me a guitar, I could probably do the whole album in its entirety.

    My gut feeling is that The Eagles are a little too peaceful and too easy for more rock oriented TBers and as a whole, less of them own Their Greatest Hits 1971-1975 than Dark Side, but more than Legend...somewhere around 83%

    I think I have all the underlying albums, so getting the "Greatest Hits" album doesn't make much sense.

    I never was much of an Eagles fan. Was discussing this the other day. They are good and they have a following so I must not be hearing what others enjoy.

    I've owned all 3 myself. Hell, I believe everybody has. Even the hearing impaired, it's sold enough copies.

    No, none of their records.

    I can see how some could like their stuff, but just not for me.

    I don't have the Eagles GH, because I have all the CDs and most on LP.

    This is the first of these threads that I've voted "no" in. My GF put a live album of theirs on my computer. Thank god for the skip button. ;)

    Hey Eagles fans, I'm just funnin'. To each their own. fjadams sums up my feelings nicely:

    I totally get. This album has one foot (maybe both feet) firmly planted in "easy listening" territory and that's a huge turn off to a lot of folk.

    LOL! :p

    My predictions suck! :atoz:

    This looks to be turning into the least owned album!

    +1, for me, same with Marley, I have most of his albums.
    I'm old, been able to buy most of this music in real time if you know what I mean.;) When I first bought an Eagles or Marley album, neither artist was that popular yet.

    Yep, the vinyl version. They played it on the radio so, so much in the 70's/80's by request, I'll can replay it in my head instead of buying a modern digital copy. ;)

    John Sinclair once said that after hearing The Eagles first record he knew Rock & Roll was dying and never listened to it again for many many years.

    Understandable, that.
