"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.
