The Eagles – Their Greatest Hits

Again, I know this is a compilation but it’s too good of one to not be included. So good that it’s one of the best selling records ever, tied with Micheal Jackson’s Thriller.

Like Madonna’s Immaculate Collection (mentioned in disc 7) this is a greatest hit package of the songs that defined The Eagles. Witchy Woman, Desperado, Tequila Sunrise, Take It To The Limit, One Of These Nights are all amazing songs.  Each one is definitively an Eagles song, although many have covered them, there is no denying the sound when you hear it, it can’t be performed any other way (or at least shouldn’t be).
These songs set the standard for country/rock.
