The Eagles are an iconic American rock band who are one of the most commercially successful groups in American history. Their first GREATEST HITS album is one of the two biggest selling albums in music history. It was number one but when Michael Jackson died, THRILLER passed it.
While their albums have sold ten-of-millions of albums, they also issued a number of successful singles, with five reaching number one on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart.
“Please Come Home For Christmas” was issued during the late fall of 1978 and became a holiday hit by reaching number 18. The flip side, “Funky New Year,” was also a catchy holiday song.
It may have been an unusual release for the Eagles but it remains one of the better holiday discs of the 1970s.
