Actual Miles: Henley's Greatest Hits is the first greatest hits compilation album by American singer-songwriter Don Henley, released in 1995. The album was the first compilation album released by Henley and it covered hits from all three of his solo albums throughout the 1980s. The album features three new songs, "The Garden of Allah", "You Don't Know Me at All", and Henley's cover of "Everybody Knows". The collection peaked at No. 48 on the charts and reached platinum status. "The Garden of Allah" reached No. 16 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.[2]

Album cover[edit]

The photograph on the cover half-jokingly depicts Henley as a cigar-smoking used car salesman, which Don himself was asked about by David Letterman following a 1995 performance on The Late Show. Henley explained that the picture and album title was a subtle satire on the record industry.
