Here’s why this album should be in your collection!
Henley built a very successful discography. He composed “Leather and Lace” with Stevie Nicks. “Dirty Laundry” from his first solo album reached #3 on USA charts. The 1984 single “The Boys of Summer” earned a Grammy award. Henley won another Grammy and an MTV award for “The End of the Innocence.” The song received critical acclaim for Bruce Hornsby’s signature piano performance. (Here is a live version.)
The album contains several other great tracks: “New York Minute,” “The Last Worthless Evening,” “I Will Not Go Quietly,” and “The Heart of the Matter,” which became a cover hit for India Arie. It also contains many legendary musical guests, including Sheryl Crow, Axl Rose, Ivan Neville, Patty Smyth, Take 6, Melissa Ethridge, Wayne Shorter, David Paich and Jeff Porcaro (from Toto), Maxine Waters, and J.D. Souther, a frequent co-composer.
