As one of the world's best-selling music artists, Def Leppard have sold more than 100 million records worldwide, and have two albums with RIAA Diamond Certification, Pyromania and Hysteria. They are one of only five rock bands with two original studio albums selling over 10 million copies in the U.S. The band were ranked No. 31 in VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock" and ranked No. 70 in "100 Greatest Artists of All Time" and in 2019 were inducted to the Rock n Roll hall of fame. 'The Early Years' box set represents the band's first two albums: On Through the Night (1980) and High 'N' Dry (1981) and has been prepared in conjunction with singer Joe Elliott who has acted as executive producer on the set. The mastering has been done by the band's long serving sound engineer Ronan McHugh. On Through the Night, the band's debut album, was released in 1980 and immediately put the rock world on notice. The band were destined for big things with the album charting at #15 in the UK and #51 in the US. Produced by Tom Allom, it featured many of the band's live favourites and some updated versions of early singles. The album achieved platinum status in 1989. High 'N' Dry , the first of Def Leppard's albums to be produced by Robert 'Mutt' Lange, was released in 1981. It reached #26 in the UK charts and #38 in the US, further cementing the bands status.
