Billboard 200 - #13, 1985 UK Albums Chart - #14, 1985 Billboard Hot 100 - #5, 1984 - The Boys Of Summer Grammy Award - Best Male Rock Vocal Performance, 1985 - The Boys Of Summer "... a meticulously crafted and programmed set of songs about love and politics. The arrangements are more varied and generally edgier than the Eagles' easy-rolling songs ..." - Rolling Stone "This one makes you listen ... its abrupt shapes and electro/symphonic textures never whisper Eagles remake." - Robert Christgau Included on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 best albums of the 1980s, Don Henley's Building The Perfect Beast was a huge success with both critics and fans. The album has sold over three million copies in the US and yielded four top 40 singles, including the Grammy-winning hit The Boys Of Summer which peaked at number five on the US charts. The star-studded recording sessions feature members of Tom Petty's band, Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac, Belinda Carlisle from The Go-Go's, Sam Moore of Sam & Dave and Randy Newman.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
