  • Recorded between 1982 and 1995.
  • ACTUAL MILES: HENLEY'S GREATEST HITS features 10 of his solo hits, plus two new recordings "The Garden Of Allah" and "You Don't Know Me".
  • Every one of once-and-future Eagles vocalist Don Henley's solo hits, plus two new tunes and an overlooked cover version of an old Leonard Cohen songs are included on ACTUAL MILES.
  • One could question the validity of a greatest hits collection that draws from only three solo albums, but with the rampant success of the Eagles' recent reunion, Henley saw fit to compile this retrospective personally. He could have done much worse. The songs still stand up over time, and the thematic sequencing of ACTUAL MILES serves the selection well. The collection also features a pair of previously unrecorded tracks with "The Garden Of Allah" being the more interesting of the two. ACTUAL MILES serves as a decent primer to anyone who wants to hear Henley's hits but wishes to eschew his actual albums.
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (12/1/95, pp.72-73) - "...arrives at a moment when it's useful to remember that, along with Bruce Springsteen, Henley is one of just two '70s superstars who've managed to maintain a career as a great singles artist for grown-ups." - Rating: B+

Q (2/96, p.108) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...provide[s] the soundtrack to the Hollywood dream while simultaneously flaying that dream alive..."
