    The Very Best of Don Henley highlights some of his multiple hits during
    his career. “All She Wants To Do Is Dance”, “Dirty Laundry”, “New York
    Minute”, “The Boys of Summer”, “The End Of The Innocence” and
    “Everything Is Different Now” are some of the well-known hits on this
    collection. The Very Best of Don Henley is great for those who like
    classic rock and/or any Eagle music collections.
