In the mid-1980s, Don Henley became the biggest solo star to emerge from the ashes of the Eagles’ breakup, his 1984 album Building the Perfect Beast generating four hit singles. All of them are performed on this 1985 broadcast from the Universal Amphitheater near Los Angeles, including the hits “Boys of Summer,” “All She Wants to Do Is Dance,” and “Sunset Grill.” Also sung by Don were other highlights from his first two LPs, as well as reprises of two classics by the Eagles, “Desperado” and “Hotel California.”

Released on the label Air Cuts.
