I am a big fan of Don Henley with and without the Eagles, and while his social commentaries do get a bit tiresome at times, there is no denying the quality of the music, which is the bottom line for me. From the opening biting social commentary of "Dirty Laundry" to the closing unlisted track "Everybody Knows", most of these tracks are stellar.
"The Boys Of Summer" and "The End Of The Innocence" are two of Don's biggest and best hits that are of course included here. In fact, every top 40 Don solo song that is not a part of a duet is here. In addition, none of the three new tracks are really ballads--interesting since Don has had so many great slower hits.
I take exception to those who think "I Will Not Go Quietly" should not be here. That is a great hard-rocking track that rock radio played a lot of in the summer of 1989. To me, it helps to show the diversity that does in fact make up Don Henley's great solo music.
For sure, you can't go wrong if you are a fan of the Eagles and/or Don with this collection. While some of his hits are much better than others, this collection provides just what a greatest hits collection should provide--all the biggest hits along with some great album tracks and interesting new material. Definitely a recommended purchase.

This collection, without a doubt, is one of my favorite CDs I own. It is always in my car- the CD cover has even begun to fade. I'm not exactly sure why certain songs such as "I Will Not Go Quietly" or "Not Enough Love In The World" are considered greatest hits, but I enjoy hearing them anyway. Of the three newer songs, "Garden of Allah" is far and away the best.

Don Henley is one of my favorite male singers of all time, with or without the Eagles (which, behind Fleetwood Mac, is my favorite band), and a truly great songwriter, littering his lyrics with wit and wisdom. "The Boys of Summer" is my all-time favortie song of any genre... the sound is the perfect soundtrack for driving the California coast! And "The End of the Innocence" is so true... an absolutely gorgeous masterpiece that manages to include an important message. The collection only falters in that it nearly draws exclusively from 2 albums, with "Dirty Laundry" the sole representative from his first solo effort. In my opinion, "Johnny Can't Read" should have been inluded over "I Will Not Go Quietly". The "new" songs offer little new, and pale next to the classics. So... If you are just a casual fan, this collection will probably suit you and works well as an intro to Don's amazing talent. It leaves you craving more, however. Therefore I suggest buying the 3 proper CD's, which ususally are bargain priced anyway. Can't wait for the latest Don Henley release coming next month!

Typical Greatest hits collection, January 7, 2005

Reviewer: Alan B. Richards (Denton, TX USA)

The title says it all. This album has neither the depth or the flow of either "Building the Perfect Beast" or "Inside Job" and in fact contains nothing off of "Inside Job" which to me is Henley's best solo album. It don't sound like Henley was involved in the production at all. It's better than listening to the radio. But you're better off buying the real Don Henley albums for the gems that don't make it to a greatest hits album

>>>>>>

Yes, this is the typical greatest hits collection (aren't they all?). But I do find it important to point out two things:

1. INSIDE JOB was released about five years AFTER this greatest hits collection was produced. Your release information is WAY off.

2. You are half correct (to a certain point) that Don Henley was not "involved in the production at all". In 1994, Henley and David Geffen (former head of the now-sold Geffen Records that had a contract with Henley at the time) were in a legal battle where Henley wanted out of his contract with Geffen Records, because he believed Geffen was not treating him fairly monetary wise (isn't that always the case?). Geffen sued; Henley countersued. The suit was settled when (a) The Eagles agreed to let Geffen release the live album HELL FREEZES OVER and (b) Henley agreed to let a Greatest Hits album be released of his solo work (which is this one: Actual Miles). Henley wanted out and this compilation is what came from it.

Don Henley makes a masterpiece of his greatest hits, and even adds 3 new songs (2 of which I like a lot) to the mix. He certainly doesn't skimp on the good music in this fine collection. Starting off with "Dirty Laundry," a biting track about the press, he never lets the listener down with is fine material from 3 albums. My personal favorites from this album-"The End of the Innocence"-a fantastic track, "New York Minute"-a really haunting song about rushing through life too fast, and "Not Enough Love In The World"-Henley on a falsetto, not bad. The new songs, especially "The Garden of Allah" (a really funny track), are quite fine as well. The only thing that could have made this album better is the inclusion of "Johnny Can't Read," "Sit Down You're Rocking The Boat," and his masterpiece duet with Patti Smyth "Sometimes Love Ain't Enough." Still, this is a fine album, one of the finest greatest hits albums I've seen in a while...
