Don Henley‘s November 1984 solo album Building the Perfect Beast   was so stacked with hits  such as “The Boys of Summer“,”All She Wants to Do is Dance“, and “Sunset Grill“,  was so wildly popular ( #13 Billboard  album chart with  over 3,000,000 sold in the first year), and widely celebrated ( a Grammy, four MTV Video Awards, and Rolling Stone magazine’s #73 on the “100 Greatest Albums of the 1980s”) that it is easy to mistake Building the Perfect Beast  as his likely first post-Eagles sortie. Which it was not, as we shall hear  In the Studio  the week of December 9. –Redbeard
