Synopsis

Album Description
"Don's albums were like State of the Union addresses delivered with the perception and sharpness he had honed in theEagles during the 1970s. He could be relied on to comment on what was going wrong in his country in ways that wereentertaining as well as thought-provoking." Out of all of the Eagles, Don Henley had the most successful solo career. 1984's Building The Perfect Beast sold over two million copies and stayed on the charts for over a year and 1989's The End Of The Innocence sold over three million copies and stayed on the charts for nearly three years. The Very Best Of Don Henley is the first career-spanning collection of all his classic hits, covering his tenures at Elektra, Geffen and Warner Bros Records. The collection features some of the most enduring songs in recent pop/rock history, such as "Dirty Laundry," "The Boys Of Summer," "The End Of The Innocence" and "The Heart Of The Matter." These classic songs feature the talents of a veritable `who's who' of writers and musicians including most members of Eagles, Tom Petty's Heartbreakers and Toto, as well as Danny Kortchmar, Martha Davis, Patty Smyth, Axl Rose, Bruce Hornsby, Wayne Shorter, Take 6, Larry Klein, J.D. Souther and Sheryl Crow.

CD Reviews

Incomplete
Scott Walker | 06/17/2009
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Unbelievably a second Don Henley solo compilation with blaspemous omissions. Again no "I cant stand still", " Johnny Cant Read" ,"Driving with your eyes closed" "A month of Sundays" or "Who Owns this place". Who the heck needs four songs from Inside Job? And yet the first single is missing. One freaking song from the first solo album. What a joke. This is nothing more than a repackaging of the Actual Miles with the Inside Job songs replacing the subpar new songs. For a Henley novice this is ok,but for a longtime Henley fan this is nothing special."
Pretty Lazy if you ask me...

"This compilation album is identical to Actual Miles... same songs, same order with the following exception.
They remove two of the three new songs that was on Actual Miles and replace them with 3 songs from Inside Job.

No new music... they could have at least put some of his lesser known hits instead of rehashing the exact same playlist from Actual Miles.

Johnny Can't Read
I Can't Stand Still
Talking to the Moon
Them And Us
Month of Sundays
Driving With Your Eyes Closed

All great early stuff that could have been added

I at least expected his cover of Everybody Wants To Rule The World which he was singing in concert... that they could have done without any new effort."
What A Rip Off

"I really love Don Henley but...With two exceptions this is pretty much a re-release of his 1995 solo album (Actual Miles).

Sounds like the record company is trying to make a quick buck! For those that don't have the earler release knock yourself out."
